Uncharted NGP set before Uncharted 1

Naughty Dog clarifies "mistake".

Uncharted NGP is set before Uncharted 1, Naughty Dog has said.

Last night we reported on a gameblog.fr interview in which Naughty Dog co-president Christophe Balestra said the game took place between Uncharted 1 and Uncharted 2.

"Christophe made a mistake. :)" Naughty Dog community manager Arne Meyer wrote on NeoGAF.

The Sony Bend-developed game is actually set before 2007 PlayStation 3 exclusive Uncharted 1 – but it's not a prequel.

"Bend Studio is really the best bet for any info related to the Uncharted NGP game, but I couldn't help but want to jump in and mention that the NGP storyline is set sometime before Drake's Fortune (and not a prequel)," Meyer said.

"I'll leave the rest for the NGP/Uncharted NGP press campaign."

He added: "Reason we're making the distinction is that it's not a direct lead-in to the story of Drake's Fortune, which many people would expect if you said 'prequel'".

In the gameblog.fr interview Balestra said Uncharted NGP features a different vibe and rhythm than the PS3 games so people can play it in short bursts.

It's the same category of game, but has more exploration and fewer gunfights, letting people breathe while playing.

He also said Uncharted NGP will "most likely" feature interactions with Uncharted 3, also out later this year.

Responsibility for development has been passed from Naughty Dog to Sony Bend, whose most recent effort was the impressive Resistance: Retribution on PSP.

One of the development challenges Bend faces, Balestra said, is working with actors, suggesting the portable version features cinematics akin to those seen in its big brother.

NGP is due out this year.
