Developer portfolio spills beans.

An unwitting modeller at Naughty Dog has accidentally revealed the name of the team's upcoming PlayStation 3 game in his online portfolio, referring to the upcoming 2007 release as Uncharted: Drake's Fortune.

Along with this he also posted new screenshots showing lush jungle environments (in the game, that is). Unfortunately, this has all mysteriously disappeared, leaving us with only PlayFrance's word for it.

Publisher Sony was unavailable for comment at the time of writing, but we expect little more than what it said to US gaming sites: "We do not comment on rumors or speculation. No official announcement has been made."

Naughty Dog's game was shown at last year's E3, and has had no previous name associated with it. All we knew about it was from a one minute-long teaser trailer, showing a third-person action title that looked strikingly similar to an Indiana Jones adventure, with the protagonist monkeying around in a tropical forest with shotguns and pistols.

It sounds like a fairly convincing rumour to us.

Meanwhile, you can adventure over to the game's website to see the trailer from E3. Which is about as in-game as an idea not derived from Aliens.
