Exclusive: Nolan North Talks Uncharted 5: “You Don’t Want To Jump The Shark”


Nolan North has spoken about the possibility of a fifth entry in Naughty Dog’s beloved Uncharted series.

In an exclusive interview with OnlySP at Supanova Comic Con & Gaming, North spoke about fans hoping for Naughty Dog to develop Uncharted 5.

“A lot of people want the fifth Uncharted, but that ship has kinda sailed. It’s great that so many people can all remember such an iconic franchise.”

North was also asked about the legacy of the franchise, and when he realised that it had become a phenomenon.

“We didn’t know there’d be a second one. I just remember being really excited to do the second one, and when that one really took off, [Naughty Dog] pretty much knew there’d be a third and a fourth.”

Finally, North revealed when he realised that the series was coming to an end.

“It wasn’t until the fourth one kind of started that there’s no fifth one and you’re going ‘Okay, what’s next?’ But you don’t want to jump the shark … It was bittersweet to end the franchise, but we’re proud of what we’ve made, and if that’s the way that Sony and Naughty Dog decide to leave it, then I’m fine with that.”

His favourite games are those with deep and captivating narratives: while it would take far too long to list them all, some include L.A. Noire, Red Dead Redemption (and its sequel), Wolfenstein: The New Order, The Last of Us, and the Uncharted series.
