Uncharted and its beautiful sequel are some of the most technologically impressive games this generation, delivering genuinely cinematic experiences. Ready at Dawn, a studio comprised of former Naughty Dog and Blizzard employees have demonstrated just what an incredible team they are, by squeezing an unbelievable amount of juice out of the aging PSP hardware. Seriously..have you seen how incredible Ghost of Sparta looks?
Anyway, their next game is going to be a new story-driven cinematic experience, not unlike Naughty Dog’s Uncharted – and I have no doubt that it’ll be a masterpiece.
â€œIt’s the kind of game we’re going to make,â€ said Ready at Dawn Co-founder Ru Weerasuriya to Eurogamer. â€œI’m just glad they did it first. It should prove to everybody it’s doable and it’s worth doing that kind of stuff.â€
â€œI love playing story driven games. I love movies. I love things that involve me from start to end and give me a complete experience. That’s where our heads are. It’s definitely that kind of game we’re going to make. We’re not going to go off and make an open world, or an MMO, like everybody expects ex-Blizzard people to do,â€ he explained. â€œWe know what we’d like and we know what we’re good at.â€
Will it be another PSP game? Maybe. It’s â€œgoing to be whatever platform our engine runs on,â€ he said before explaining that their engine is capable of running on â€œpretty much anything.â€
Although they’ve had incredible successes with the PSP Platform, they’re not bound to Sony or their handheld – and I’d be incredibly keen to see what sort of graphical magic they’d wrest from the more powerful home HD consoles.
