The Uncharted series ended on a high note in 2016 with Uncharted 4. Sure it was followed by a spin-off Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, but there were no indications that the series would see a new installment anytime soon.

Near the launch of Uncharted 4, game developers specifically said that they were now done with Nathan Drake’s story. Neil Druckmann also said that they would find it very hard to make a new Uncharted sequel, as the story pretty much ended perfectly there.

So, it has been pretty evident for a while now that there’s no Uncharted sequel coming. But after almost six years of silence on any sort of Uncharted sequel, fans finally have some news.
