Uncharted 3 – heavily rumoured for a reveal at the Spike Video Game Awards next month – is set in the desert according to Kotaku.
Although which of the world's many deserts the game is set in is unknown, Kotaku suggests an African desert. Raiders of the Lost Ark anyone?
The rumoured setting, if correct, would follow South American jungles in Uncharted and the Himalayas in Uncharted 2: Among Thieves.
Last week we heard whispers of Sony's plan to unveil a PlayStation 3 exclusive the day after the VGAs – and those whispers made the sound of Uncharted 3.
In January Nolan North, the voice of Uncharted protagonist Nathan Drake, hinted that production on the game would begin this year.
And in September last year Naughty Dog creative director Amy Hennig expressed her belief that the Uncharted series had the potential to run and run, long past Uncharted 2: Among Thieves.
"Our expectation with Uncharted is that it can be an ongoing franchise as long as people want more of it," she said.
"[Drake's] going to have lots of adventures, thank god."
