ORIGINAL STORY 4/6/16 8.50am The PlayStation Store has just revealed one of Sony's big video game surprises for this year: Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection.
Eagle-eyed users on NeoGAF spotted a banner image for the game on the mobile version of the North American PlayStation Store. Whoops!
This is a collection of PlayStation 3 games Uncharted, Uncharted 2 and Uncharted 3 remastered for PlayStation 4, and, we suspect, is due out later in 2015 ahead of the 2016 release of Uncharted 4.
A remastered collection of Uncharted games has always been on the cards, and Sony has already ported a number of PS3 games to PS4, including Naughty Dog's own The Last of Us. Santa Monica Studios' God of War 3 Remastered is coming to PS4 this July.
We'll ask Sony about this, but it looks clear cut. Uncharted developer Naughty Dog has referenced the leak. Creative director and writer Neil Druckmann just tweeted to suggest an announcement will be made in the morning West Coast time, which is eight hours behind UK time. So, at some point this afternoon.
Well... that hit a few hours too early. See you in the AM. G'night y'all.— Neil Druckmann (@Neil_Druckmann) June 4, 2015
