The recent report by Jason Schreier anticipated several new studio projects PlayStation. After talking about a possible remake of The Last of Us (here our study), there was also a way to deepen the arrival of a possible new Uncharted 5 developed by Bend Studio e Naughty Dog.
According to the journalist, it seems that the project is born to be created by both software houses, as some members of the Bend Studio team would help with development. However, Schreier stated that they would be afraid of being absorbed by Naughty Dog, thus asking to exit the project and work on a new game.

This is obviously an event that, if it were real, would be nothing short of serious. In fact, we are talking about dand PlayStation Studios software house, who therefore work under the same wing and who - generally - should not have conflicts of this type, but collaborate to improve all their projects.
We would like to specifically emphasize that these are not yet official statements, but a Bloomberg report that may have brought the above facts to light. Until the spokespersons of the software houses will not clarify the matter in the best possible way, therefore speaking specifically of Uncharted 5 (or of a further chapter without the classic numbering) and of the situation of Bend Studio at present, it is good not to take this information as cast gold.
We therefore await further information, which after the shock that Sony has suffered today could arrive very soon. Also from the same report, it emerged that Bend Studio is not working on a sequel to his latest project, and that Days Gone 2 may not be in the plans of the Japanese company for the moment, we talked about it in depth in this article.
