‘Uncharted 5’ Begins Development? Nathan Drake Replaced by New Character?

‘Uncharted 5’ Begins Development? Nathan Drake Replaced by New Character?

Sony/Naughty Dog


“Uncharted 5” without Nathan Drake? Well, Yes. Get ready to be surprised. When we put the figure “5” next to “Uncharted,” it does mean that there are new developments ahead. Sony and Naughtydog never fail to excite their fans.

“Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End is all set to release this April and a possible sequel is on the cards. As per the Sun reports, Naughty Dog creative director Neil Druckmann reveals that it is “Really Hard” to come up with a sequel after the fourth edition.

We all know that “Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End will be the final chapter in the phenomenally successful boys’ own adventure serial,” notes Sun. But Druckmann has a way to toy with the idea of “Uncharted 5”.

“We’ve been with this character for so long”, states Neil Druckmann. “He’s at the height of his popularity, so it’s not a good business decision. But I feel like the best way to honor him is to go out on top, to finish his story.”

“Whether that’s it for Uncharted? I don’t know. At the end of the day Sony owns Uncharted and they can do whatever they want.”

What happens next is interesting.

“But with the end of this story, it will be really hard to do a sequel with Nathan Drake.”

We can’t do away with the fact that “Uncharted 4” is ending with Nathan’s death. As per the Christian Today post, the end was hinted back in 2011 when former company president Evan Wells talked about the main character being killed off. He also suggested that the leads were not considered sacred.

It is hard to figure out a possible storyline for “Uncharted 5” right at this moment. Two new characters were introduced – Drake’s estranged brother Sam, and a mysterious mercenary named Nadine Ross. Maybe the developers are thinking something along these lines.

“The heart of this is Nathan Drake’s struggle: how do you balance your relationship with your family and friends and your passion, the thing you’re willing to dedicate your life to and make big sacrifices for,” explains Druckmann.

“Nathan Drake has dealt with obsession his entire life and we’ve seen it hurt his relationship. We’ve seen how between each game his relationship with Elena falls apart. There’s something that happens there in that gap that was really interesting for us. What happened there?”

“That’s what we want to get into. Because maybe you can’t have both. Maybe you can’t have your family and that passion and the obsession.”

    It will be a sad day but I agree. It’s best to finish on a high instead of pushing things too far like a lot of other game developers do with their characters (like Sam Fisher who should’ve retired after the loss of his iconic voice actor). It would be nice to have a fresh perspective but one that still keeps the legend alive (at least in our hearts and minds). Overall, I can’t wait for uncharted 4. I’m definitely excited to play another release, but it holds a sort of melancholy. And then bring on number 5!

      Well, some “facts” you just can’t “do away with” lmao. Nice source

  • Dave Carsley

    Nice “fact” in this article.

    Media is great

  • ScottyPNR

    It needs to be cassie drake as the main character. Nathan Luke(sam looks like luke perry)and Burt (sully looks like Burt Reynolds with his stache) will all return

    • Matthew

      What about Sam Drake? or a completely new character?

      • ScottyPNR

        Luke is old as fuck(luke aka sam) he looks like Luke Perry

      • ScottyPNR

        Luke looks like he’s 50 at least. Unless its a prequel before prison.

  • Personally I would like to see a side story featuring Chloe and/or Charlie I think she could hold the game on her own.

  • Shaw Ty

    WTF! I just bought Uncharted and I have not finished the game yet and now I found out he dies!!! WTF!

    • Jukebox_Jim

      Article is old and full of incorrect information. Ignore it and enjoy this masterpiece of a game.

    • Noah

      He doesn’t

    • FettyWomp

      This game is a classic dont listen to the media..and no bro he doesnt die

  • Vivan Batra

    Maybe, they could make Nadine Ross come back and kidnap Drake’s daughter but in return, she wants Nate to find the biggest treasure in history. Nate tries to get his daughter back, but fails because Nadine has too many people at her command. After that, Drake has no choice but to find the treasure for Nadine.

    There you go, theres your story line for Uncharted 5 xd

    • Steven Langer

      Nah, Nadine is not the type of Villain to abduct little kids and hold them for ransom or anything. Referring to her display in Uncharted 4 she holds up the some code of honor. This would certainly not be her style.

      • Chris Simonin

        Ahhh I have to disagree, she did leave nate, rafe and Sam in the burning wrecked ship to die. Therefore I believe that would be a good story for 5. But let’s face it, the stupidest decision they could make would be to not make another uncharted with Drake. I still like the character and I’m not quite satisfied with his “end”. Plus, they introduced his daughter, so it’s not like they don’t plan to do something else. I just hope they’re smart enough to keep nate in it.

  • Noah

    I think that the story should continue with Nathans daughter Cassie. And she follows in Nathans footsteps and become an explorer and she should have a younger brother named Ethan and they go on adventures just like Nathan.

  • Dre Mosley

    The obvious choice is Cassie. Not saying it would be her for sure, but that seems to make the most sense. Maybe have her be say, 20 – 21 years old.
