80 Percent of PS4 Owners Have Never Played ‘Uncharted’

Naughty Dog has revealed that about 80 percent of the PlayStation 4 install base have never played an entry in the Uncharted series.

Uncharted The Nathan Drake Collection

Uncharted is easily one of, if not, Sony’s flagship franchises. But in a recent MCV interview with Naughty Dog’s Community Strategist Eric Monacelli, it was revealed  about 80 percent of those with a PlayStation4 have never even played an entry in the series.

“We did a lot of research and discovered that about 80 per cent of the people that own a PS4 have never played Uncharted, period. That was one of the reasons why we thought remastering it would be a good idea.”

But Monacelli is excited for the release of Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection, in hopes that it will do as well as The Last of Us: Remastered. Introducing new players to the series before Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End launches in 2016.

As for Naughty Dog’s future plans as a studio, the current plan is to focus solely on Uncharted 4. “We tend to work on one game at a time,” Monacelli explained. “Uncharted 4 is what everybody’s working on. After that, we’re going to be working on Uncharted 4 DLC”.

“Beyond that, there’s been tons of ideas bandied around – everybody knows the rumour about The Last of Us 2. There could potentially be – who knows? We could go back to Jak and Daxter 4 if it seems right, or there could be something else in the future on our horizon.”
