Uncharted 4: A Thief's End is the fourth game in the Uncharted series by Naughty Dog, coming to the PlayStation 4 sometime in 2015. It was announced at E3 2014, where a brief trailer was shown during the Sony press conference. Little is known about the game except that protagonists Nathan Drake and Victor Sullivan return, and that the narrative themes will take a darker bent compared to the rest of the series.
The existence of a new Uncharted game for PlayStation 4 was first revealed in a short teaser trailer on November 13th, 2013. It wasn't until June 9th of 2014, during Sony's E3 press event, that the full title of Uncharted 4: A Thief's End was revealed. A short in-engine trailer of a roughed-up Nathan Drake was shown, with voiceover dialog between Drake and Sully that hinted at the game's darker tone.
The creative leads for Uncharted 4 initially included Justin Richmond and Amy Hennig. However, in the midst of early development, Hennig left Naughty Dog for undisclosed reasons, later moving on to Visceral Games as lead writer for the studio's Star Wars project. Richmond also left the company soon after to join Riot Games. Todd Stashwick, the actor who provided the voiceover for the first teaser trailer, was recast as well. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves & The Last of Us directors Neil Druckmann and Bruce Straley then took over as leads for Uncharted 4.
For Uncharted 4, Druckmann and Straley said they aim to continue the action-heavy style that Uncharted has become known for, while also telling a more mature story in the vein of Naughty Dog's previous game, The Last of Us.
