In an interview with The Sun website, the producer Druckman told it would be very difficult to continue the adventures of Nathan Drake and Uncharted 4 could be the final episode of the series.
Uncharted 4: the end of "A Thief's End"
Unfortunately, this is a story that, Druckman unveiled by himself, could well mean the end of Uncharted. The title of Uncharted 4: A Thief's End could be interpreted literally. While remaining very vague, creative director at Naughty Dog makes it clear that the series would not be exploited. This, in itself is good news and prevents the exclusive license held by PlayStation, will become a "cash cow". However, it also means that fans may have to prepare to bury this hit series for good.
Druckman told The Sun that Nathan Drake arrives at the "height of its popularity" in recent times, and that Naughty Dog wants to make this a farewell worthy of the name. This is also the main reason for the delays announced by PlayStation.
Later in the interview, Druckman almost teaser the end of Uncharted 4. In addition to innuendo about the fate of Nathan Drake, the creative director said however precisely with "the end of A Thief's End, it will be really difficult to propose a suite with Nathan Drake. But it could be a prequel, or when a game with a different character, I do not know. But it's over for Nathan Drake. "
Returning to the key scenes added to Uncharted 4, Druckman added that the trilogy has had a "direction to the more intense and more badass" but to avoid "becoming a caricature,"the studio" does not wish to continue this path. "Hence the desire of Naughty Dog" better integrate key scenes in the story that they arrive at the right time and reflect a kind of personal conflict in history".
