Naughty Dog creative director Amy Hennig reckons the Uncharted series has the potential to run and run, long past upcoming sequel Among Thieves.
"No it doesn't conclude the story at all," said Hennig on the US PlayStation blog.
"Our expectation with Uncharted is that it can be an ongoing franchise as long as people want more of it. All these stories are self-contained enough. [You don't need] to play the last one to play this one - obviously you can get a bit more out of it if you have.
"[Drake's] going to have lots of adventures, thank god."
Uncharted: Drake's Fortune was released at the end of 2007 and took home 9/10 on Eurogamer. And the sequel Among Thieves - released on 16th October - looks every bit as good, if not better.
Naughty Dog's secret? Having no managers, bizarrely. Instead, Hennig said the studio uses "organised chaos", where everybody - right up to the co-founders - rolls their sleeves up and works on the game right up to the bell.
