Former Naughty Dog scribe and Uncharted creative director Amy Hennig has said she feels the action-adventure series still has room to continue, despite the fact Nathan Drake's globe-trotting antics were wrapped up in Uncharted 4.
Speaking with GameReactor at GameLab in Barcelona, Hennig was quizzed how she would continue the treasure-pinching series following A Thief's End's closure.
In short, she feels there's plenty of material there; in particular, she reckons there's leg room in regards to Cassie and flashbacks with Nate, noting how Indiana Jones has managed to make things work despite being decades old.
'And how would you continue it? I mean, that's tough, because they kind of wrapped it up with a bow and had the flash forward. Look, I think there's a lot of material there that you could continue with Cassie, with the daughter, you could do flashback stories with Nathan Drake… you just look at Indiana Jones; there's really not a limit,' said Hennig.
'You can always jump back in and tell a story with an older character and that gives a whole different colour to it, which is kind of cool, and you could do sort of the Young Indiana Jones version of Nathan Drake if you wanted to. I'm excited, because it sounds like the filmmakers are gonna do that actually with the Uncharted film and go back to an earlier time and stuff like that.'
Hennig departed Naughty Dog for Visceral Games back in 2014, when she began working on a narrative-driven Star Wars game.
Unfortunately, Electronic Arts' decision to shutter the Dead Space studio resulted in the project being taken in a new direction, and Hennig confirmed just last week that she has now decided to set up her own independent company.
Uncharted launched in 2007 and has sold over 41 million units to date.
