Neil Druckmann Discusses Uncharted 4’s Ending

Neil Druckmann has recently made some comments on the ending to Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End.

While speaking to IGN, Neil Druckmann, the creative director to Uncharted 4, discussed the feed back he received from focus testers on Uncharted 4’s ending. Druckmann said the following:

“I think people will discuss the ending. If focus tests are anything to go by, there will be some arguments about the ending.

“I’m excited. Indifference would be the worst thing. I would rather have people hate it than be indifferent to it. We’ll see how they react.”

Druckmann also commented on how Naughty Dog has never allowed audience opinion or thoughts about Nathan Drake’s story thus far affect the overall vision of Uncharted 4. Druckmann stated:

“What I found is you kind of have to ignore other people. Any time you try to please something outside yourself, it can easily come off as false. Whenever we make something that’s honest to us that is the game we truly want to play, you know whether you succeed or not. You pick up the controller and you’re playing it and you’re like, ‘Am I feeling anything from these characters? Am I having fun? Am I intrigued? Am I bored? Do I even care about this character?’ And if not, OK, I need to fix that for myself. I found that the more we’ve done that, the more successful we’ve been, and that’s the only correlation I can come up with.”

Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End is scheduled to released exclusively for PlayStation 4 on May 10th.

    I hope this doesn’t mean a shock value ending. Druckmann does have a taste for drama if The Last of Us is anything to go by. My quite obvious bet is that they’ll kill off Drake.

    I find Druckmann’s second statement a bit ironic given how he endorsed Anita Sarkeesian and the pandering that was Left Behind.

      haha yeah, does seem like an off character quote on the second one.
