Despite the fact that their flagship franchise is one of the launch titles for the PlayStation Vita, Naughty Dog did not develop it; Uncharted: Golden Abyss was developed by Sony Bend Studios, but the project was overseen by Naughty Dog. So can we expect a full-on Naughty Dog title hitting Sony’s small screen in the near future?
At the moment, it doesn’t look like it. Despite rumours swirling around that stated the contrary, Naughty Dog is not developing anything for the PSV and doesn’t have any plans to do so in the near future.
According to Naughty Dog’s community manager Arne Meyer, the veteran PlayStation development team wouldn’t ever “say never, ever, but there’s no plans for it right now”. And why is that? Well, Naughty Dog has always felt that that “consoles play to [their] strengths as a studio the best.”
Well that’s fine then; you guys just keep on trucking with The Last of Us instead.
