Speaking in a recent interview, Evan Wells of Naughty Dogs was discussing the success of Uncharted for the PS3. As well as lavishing praise on the PS3 and the importance of the team hiring the correct people, Wells remarked that they should be able to do much more in future as their engine and development environment are now in place.
He stated the effort can now be focused on what they want to do rather than how to do it and believes that within 3 years leaps between games on the PS3 will be bigger than those experienced on the PS2.
To quote: VideoGamer.com: Finally, what more can gamers expect from Naughty Dog games in the future? What will PS3 games look like in 3 years time?
EW: Well everybody is back after a hard earned vacation and the team is ready to dive into our next project. The most exciting thing for Naughty Dog's future is the strength of the team that we have assembled and the technology that we have in place as we embark on our next game.
We should be able to do so much more this time around, given the fact that we aren't trying to build our engine and development environment at the same time we are trying to make a game. The effort can be much more focused on what we want to do, instead of how we want to do it. As for what games will look like in 3 years, it's anybody's guess. At Naughty Dog, we're pretty sure we should be able to see leaps between games on the PS3 that are even bigger than they were on the PS2.
