It’s a sad day for Nathan, Joel and Ellie as their games have officially been labelled as old enough to not warrant multiplayer support. Announced earlier this year, we all knew it was coming but that doesn’t make it sting any less now, does it?  With Sony ramping up for the big push into the next generation, it does make sense to reduce server capacity for games that are running on much older hardware. Despite both the original Uncharted trilogy and The Last of Us having remastered versions on PS4, only The Last of Us still maintains its multiplayer scene whereas both the rereleased versions of Uncharted 2 and 3 had their multiplayer components cut from their games.  Naughty Dog posted a heartfelt tweet sending off the older versions of their hit games:

Look, you can still play the multiplayer of Uncharted 4 (which has grappling hooks, so that automatically makes it a good game) but it’s still kind of sad that people interested in seeing how the games have evolved over the years won’t be able to experience what was a thoroughly enjoyable component of them.

Which is sad because both Uncharted 2 and 3 had pretty enjoyable multiplayer. While they borrowed heavily from the cataclysmic influence of Call of Duty, they were both really competent, enjoyable shooters and it’s depressing to know that they’ve been lost to history. Hopefully some clever Internet dweller can uncover some way to host a private server and keep some form of the multiplayer alive, at least for the sake of preservation, but I have my doubts that something like that would happen.

    You know, I have some sad moments when we decommission old servers/hardware/etc especially when I put them in myself. I can imagine the guys having some feelings when powering down these systems

    Uncharted 2 was the perfect multiplayer for me. That Sanctuary map, which you placed as the picture of this article was so wonderful, peaceful and beautiful that I couldn’t write any other map which is so brilliant as this one.

    I want to revive this games’online function, because as I see, the servers had a minimal role of this multiplayer.
    But I don’t have so much knowledge about this, so I have to learn it in the next years.
    I captured the network traffic of this game. Hopefully it’ll be enough for a possible revival.
