Fans hoping for a cameo appearance from Nathan Drake in Naughty Dogs upcoming DLC for Uncharted 4 – Uncharted: The Lost Legacy will be disappointment according to writer Jason Sherr.
Uncharted: The Lost Legacy is a standalone DLC set to launch later this year that features series female characters Chloe Frazer and Nadine Ross, sadly though, it won’t see a return for series protagonist Nathan Drake.
“We entertained a few possible ideas around including Nate as a secondary character, but everything we did felt superfluous because we tied it all up with Uncharted 4” explained Sherr who was speaking to PlayStation Blog.
Uncharted series designer Kurt Margenau further dampened fan hopes of a return for Drake, “We’re not going to touch on Nathan Drake in this, at all.” So, uh, maybe don’t hold your breath“.
Nathan Drake’s final appearance in the Uncharted series came in 2016 with Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End.
The developer would confirm that Uncharted: Lost Legacy will be longer in length than The Last of Us: Left Behind but shorter than Uncharted 4.
Uncharted: The Lost Legacy is set to release on PS4 in 2017.
