Same reason why Breaking Bad ended after 5 seasons. They have a story to tell, and they're sticking to that plan. Going out on a high note, rather than milking it.
Yep. That's why i enjoy 10 episode mini series (e.g. Fargo, True Detective) and series where the producers say home many seasons they have planned way more compared to ones where they ride on the hype/the high ratings as long as they can, creating stupid stuff and over the top season endings on the way.

Back to OT. Let's see how big the marketing push for this is going to be.

They had virtually no story to tell with Uncharted.

They had to come up with new ideas with 2 and 3. Balestra said they just don't want to rely on one franchise and they think they have done enough of that story, they felt 3 wasn't a definitive send off for them, so they wrote 4 with that in mind, no matter if they ever make another sequel or not in the distant future. They want to move on.

But they still had to come up with that story from scratch, they had no idea where they were headed before they started writing it.

Unlike Breaking Bad.

The size of this game will be nuts.

Considering ND have said this is the longest Uncharted too, and I take my sweet time playing, I'll clock a playitime similar to TLoU.

What I am wondering is if you can hop in and out of the boat.
It would be great if there's say an optional treasure in that ship, but it seems like it would be so expensive and time consuming to put detail across a large amount of sea bed. They are crazy enough to do it mind.

10 times bigger doesn't sound.. Hope it's not too big, I want a focused game...
they explain it's more like branching paths that ultimately lead to the same goals rather then, say...a massive directionless open landscape.... so i imagine it's going to do wonders for replayability.

Deleted tweet from Playstation. Preview for tomorrow's "Making of" video. (Video is private)

10 times bigger? Hell, yes! I've been dying for a game that has big open ended maps but is not open world. Actually, come to think of it, Bloodborne fits this criteria very well and is probably one of the reasons why I'm enjoying it so much. Anyway, back on topic, hopefully, the larger levels will give the campaign at least 14 hours of playtime.

That's what I'm wondering as well. As I said on another thread, it would be nice to see a few minutes showcasing the vehicles gameplay and how you can approach the environments' openness with those. (boat, inflatable boat, jeep, quad, etc.)

I'm not sure about using boats in a wide environment like sea, but navigating through ruins with an inflatable boat and doing scuba diving would be quite interesting to play.

10 times?

Well, explorable places in Uncharted games were never large to begin with.

I cannot really think on any large space in original trilogy, so making something that is 10 times faster will be good... but IMO not mindblowing.

Couple things I'm still worried about, is there's been no mention of either singleplayer skins or co-op/wave modes online :/ I know they're two different things, but each will solidify both the single and multi-player modes for me, separately.

I saw a trailer for this game at the movie theater when I went to watch Batman Bin Suparman. First time I see a video game ad at the movies in my country. Sony going all out on this bitch.

Someone in the other thread mentioned it.

I went to the midnight screening of batman vs superman in Aus and flipped out when i saw it
(Ill be going to the movies on monday hopefully it shows up again which ill film on my phone if thats the case)

Pretty sure it was cgi (not the one of him diving for his brothers hand) hes sitting in a burning buildig can't remember what he says and he flicks a coin towards the screen then there are quick cuts and hes hanging of a car on that waterfall

I've messaged both ND and neil so hopefully i'll get an answer back as it was an awesome trailer
I assume this is the trailer you saw.

It wasn't CGI, it was a bunch of scenes from the game, mostly cut-scenes from the latest trailer. I think I remember seeing a coin flip.

Looks like press are going hands on pretty soon. (Assuming this is for the press). Someone posted this on twitter without context, so I'm not 100% sure.

Okay Detective Gaf, a Reddit found this while scrolling in an IGN article, I'm guessing is from that trailer/commercial from BvS?
What?!?

Sony, put that shit on youtube! Don't make me go on IGN and refresh the page until I get that ad.
