The End of Nathan Drake?

There’s some sad news regarding a beloved character today. Judging by the name of the upcoming game, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, many have guessed that it will see the end of Nathan Drake. After a recent interview with creative director, Neil Druckmann, the rumors have been confirmed.

Speaking to The Sun, Druckmann said Drake is at the height of his popularity, and that it is the proper time for his story to finish, at the peak. He went on to say that the ending for Uncharted 4 will make it difficult to make a sequel incorporating Nathan Drake.

According to further details, while Uncharted 4 is the end of Nathan Drake, there may be other additions to the series. Whether that incorporates a new hero, or not, remains to be determined. For all Druckmann knows, it could even be a prequel. It’s all up in the air at this point.

That being said, no one has said Nathan Drake will die. Many endings are possible, where his storyline simply ends, but he is very much alive. Elena might have a part to play, right? Right?!

Let us know what you think about this sad news, and whether you’re still going to get the game!
