Naughty Dog has said that the NGP version of Uncharted will be set before the PlayStation 3 original.
Speaking in an interview with gameblog.fr, Naughty Dog co-president Christophe Balestra revealed the game will take place before Uncharted 1 and Uncharted 2, although according to another post by Naughty Dog community manager Arne Meyer on NeoGAF the game is not a prequel.
“Bend Studio is really the best bet for any info related to the Uncharted NGP game, but I couldn’t help but want to jump in and mention that the NGP storyline is set sometime before Drake’s Fortune (and not a prequel),” Meyer said.
“I’ll leave the rest for the NGP/Uncharted NGP press campaign.”
Although Meyer doesn’t work directly for Bend Studio, the developers behind the game, Meyer just wanted to clear up some misleading information regarding the story, hence the reason for his post.
“We’re making the distinction is that it’s not a direct lead-in to the story of Drake’s Fortune, which many people would expect if you said ‘prequel’”.
NGP is due out this year, we hope.
