When you think Uncharted, first thing thing that probably comes to mind is Nathan Drake. Uncharted is a a series that has built such an iconic character, it’s hard to imagine a game without him. And while rumors are have stated that Naughty Dog is currently developing a new Uncharted game, it seems that the voice actor (Nolan North) of Nathan Drake himself is being left in the dark as he has made is clear that he hasn’t been contracted to come back to reprise his iconic role.
Speaking in a recent live broadcast of Retro Replay , Nolan took to answering some fan questions, with one wanting him to confirm Uncharted 5.
You know what, I can confirm Uncharted 5 because it’s called Uncharted 4 because Golden Abyss was number five (assumed meant to say four), who knows. If they’re making an Uncharted, I don’t know about. And if they are and I don’t know about it, and I’m not in it I’m gonna throw some hands. We’re gonna have some problems.
There you have, straight from the man himself. Of course he could be saying this due to a possible NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement) that we have seen in the past for other games (such as voice actors denying involvements with Mortal Kombat DLC,) but it did seem pretty genuine. That’s not saying much though since he is an actor and all.
We are hoping it is the case that Naughty Dog isn’t working on new Uncharted game as it would be a huge bummer not to include Nolan North as Nathan Drake.
