Though the saga of Nathan Drake came to a close with 2016's Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, the possibility of another entry is not completely off the table, according to Naughty Dog creative director Neil Druckmann, as spotted by PushSquare.

Druckmann let the glimmer of hope loose during a Retro Replay segment of The Last of Us, while in conversation with hosts Troy Baker and Nolan North, as well as actress Ashley Johnson.

"You just realise we're not going to top that so we're going to do something different," Druckmann said. "We're just gonna do this other thing. And then kinda similarly with the sequel is first of all: do we want to make it and we're lucky that we have the freedom that Sony gives us where we can choose? We made Uncharted 4 and we haven't made another Uncharted since, maybe one day we will, we'll see."

Regardless of what Druckmann said, the possibility of another Uncharted game is still speculation at this point in time. The studio, for now, is likely putting all of its focus on its next big title: The Last of Us Part II. Naughty Dog's highly anticipated sequel is coming May 29.
