Uncharted: The Lost Legacy Won’t Have a Nathan Drake Cameo

We haven’t heard much about Uncharted: The Lost Legacy since it was announced in December of last year – however some new details have emerged. Nathan Drake fans will be disappointed, as it sounds like the game is a girls-only story.

In an interview published on the PlayStation Blog, game Director Kurt Margenau said that Drake isn’t showing his face in the spinoff. “We’re not going to touch on Nathan Drake in this, at all,” he explained.

Game writer Josh Scherr elaborated a bit, saying they “entertained a few possible ideas around including Nate as a secondary character,” however they ended up feeling like “everything we did felt superfluous because we tied it all up with Uncharted 4.”

For those wondering what old Nathan is up to while his former lover and his future adversary are off treasure hunting, perhaps he’s just living at home like a normal human being.

“You can sort of imagine Drake sitting on the couch playing Crash Bandicoot while Chloe and Nadine are off galavanting,” Scherr joked. “Yeah, the Crash Bandicoot remaster,” Margenau said in a follow up.

You should read up on the whole blog post linked above, as they go over the creative process behind the game, and where the original concepts sprung up.

A release date for Uncharted: The Lost Legacy isn’t confirmed.

    Drake just isn’t progressive enough.

    And they want to keep Princess Anita happy as well.

    Can’t say I’m interested either way in getting nor playing this DLC. Chloe’s golden days in Uncharted 2 have passed thanks to today’s political climate.

    Why does Chloe looks like a man?

    I think the new writers want to leave their mark.That may be the reason they’re not including Drake.It’s a statement.I mean it happened with Blizzard and what they did to Cain in Diablo 3.It also happened with Bethesda and the way it was revealed in Skyrim that Vvardenfel was obliterated.They’re trying to say “this is something new”.The new stuff is usually of lower quality than before though.

    I think this is just a way for ND to test the waters for a female protagonist in their next game, or if they decided to continue using the Uncharted name.

    “girls only story?” Did you just assume its gender?!?

    Bad make up job or a couple shiners to the eyes is what that is.

    Congratulations, you’re now essentially making another Tomber Raider game with even less groundbreaking aspects in all fields.

    Ah well. I was hoping there’d be at least 1 hardcore scene in the XXX Parody’s, but what can you do?

    Her lips kind of make her look half dead. Their color doesn’t seem healthy.

    I wonder why devs never figure out that feminists don’t really buy video games.
