Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End has been out a couple weeks now and the reception for it has been great. I myself recently finished the game and loved every second of it. However having finished it now I have been pondering what could the upcoming single player DLC for Uncharted 4 be and when will we find out?
As you all know E3 2016 is only a few weeks away now and we can expect some pretty good surprises from the show I’m sure. Sony will have their E3 Press Event on Monday June 13th at 9PM Est. Could this be where we see what’s next for Uncharted 4? I personally don’t think we will as the game will have only been out a month by that time and most of the Naughty Dog team is probably taking a vacation now that the game is out on the market. In an interview a few months back, Naughty Dog’s Director of Communications had the following to say regarding the DLC;
“I was talking with Neil (game director) about a month ago when that was just revealed and reading all the stories and fan reactions about it. It was interesting because people are thinking maybe we’ll hold back some of the story or stuff like that. But he’s like, ‘I have no idea what we’re going to do with that.’ We’re so busy on the actual game and I was talking to him and saying that we’re taking a big risk here because we have no idea what we’re going to do yet. We’ve committed to putting something together and it has to be a high level of quality and have a really engaging story, and we’ve said that this is the final chapter. We have all these things we need to resolve at some point but we have no idea what that is.”
“Neil hasn’t even begun to think about what the storyline for the single-player DLC is. Then obviously we don’t have the resources to work on it because everyone’s working on the game. We just know that we’re going to do it.”
Now this was awhile back that this was said so Naughty Dog could have possibly figured something out by now but it’s still doubtful. Again work on the game just wrapped a month ago and that is hardly any time to get to work on DLC let alone a trailer. The only way I could think of that they would have a trailer ready is if they had a second team working on it much like how The Last of Us was revealed a month after Uncharted 3 came out. Still it’s doubtful as I don’t think Neil and Bruce would hand that off to another team. If I had to guess we won’t be seeing the Single Player DLC trailer until PSX 2016 in December. The Last of Us released in June 2013 and we didn’t find out about Left Behind until the end of the year of 2013. I expect that to be the case again here with Uncharted 4.
What about you? Do you think there is anyway Naughty Dog surprises us all and reveals what’s next for Uncharted 4 at E3 2016 in a few weeks? What do you want to see from it? Tell us in the comments below.
