For better or worse, video game franchises rarely die. But Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End might be Nathan Drake’s final adventure, according to voice actor Nolan North, who has portrayed Drake in every Uncharted game to date.
“It’s bittersweet but at a certain point you want to go out on top,” North told me. “If this is the last one indeed, and I believe it’s the last one – nothing’s confirmed, but I believe it’s the last one Naughty Dog wants to do, in which case I hope somebody else doesn’t pick up the mantle because they’ve done it so well for so long – but yeah, it’s one of those things where you just have to cross that bridge when you get to it.
“I like the idea of going out on top so we better do a hell of a job with this one… and it’s already looking pretty good.”
I agree that it’s good to go out while people still remember you fondly. There’s probably only so many more places they can really go with this series before it just feels like the same old thing we’ve done too many times. If Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End is the last game in the series, you can be sure it’ll finish the series in grand fashion.
