Updated: “Next Uncharted game” mentioned, you can be in it

Update: Turns out that by “the next Uncharted game” they actually mean ‘help design a character for an existing game’; the contest’s winner will in fact merely assist Naughty Dog in the creation of a new multiplayer character for Uncharted 3, unique taunt and all. So, things are not as exciting as first thought, after all.

Original story: Someone, somewhere is planning or already working on a new addition to the Uncharted series.

As said in the latest edition of PlayStation’s Pulse series (embedded below, see 5:40 mark), the eventual winner of the ‘Uncharted 3 meets training camp’ competition “will become a part of the next Uncharted game.” Seeing as Naughty Dog will be involved in the selection process, it could well be that that the developer has made up its mind as to which project to tackle next.

The studio was last month caught looking for “next-gen” staff, suggesting that maybe, just maybe Uncharted 4 could be an early PlayStation 4 title, terrifying as it may be.
