Update 10:05 am: Here’s the official trailer and blog post confirming the PS4 release of Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection.
The anthology of remastered PS3 games will feature versions of the single-player campaigns optimized for 1080p resolution and 60 FPS framerate and will include access to the Uncharted 4 multiplayer beta.
[Original story follows.]
It looks like the series that helped put the PS3 on the map will be coming to the PS4. An image for something titled Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection showed up on the mobile version of the PlayStation Store last night.
While it’s long been speculated that Sony would bring the last-gen adventures of the roguish treasure hunter over to their latest home console, Sony hasn’t announced anything officially. Details on The Nathan Drake Collection are pretty much non-existent right now. The image that popped up doesn’t offer up any info as whether this will be a digital or physical release and clicking through brings users to an error page. (It’s also not appearing on the desktop browser version of the PS store.)
If true, this instance is almost exactly like the unintended reveal that happened last year for The Last of Us Remastered. The existence of that game was spotted in Sony’s digital storefront before any official announcement was made. It’s also worth noting that Uncharted 4 got pushed from a 2015 release window last year and is now expected in 2016. An up-rezzed bundle of the PS3 Uncharteds would help fill a Nathan Drake-shaped hole for Sony. Kotaku has reached out to Sony for comment and will update this story if/when they respond.
Update: Readers are noting a tweet from Naughty Dog creative director Neil Druckmann that all but confirms The Nathan Drake Collection.
