Naughty Dog Wants Jak Back
When the PS3 was first announced back in 2005, most gamers knew what title they wanted to see from developer Naughty Dog: Jak & Daxter. However, the company went to work on new IP Uncharted, and Jak & Daxter were left behind.
With it being three years since the launch of the PS3, and Naughty Dog close to releasing Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, many have wondered if a Jak & Daxter title would come out for PS3. But Naughty Dog has been listening to their fans, and have a surprising answer for them.
“We definitely hear a lot from our Jak fans and we’d love to be able to be working on a new Jak product at some point. That might be on the cards.”
Naughty Dog is currently developing the highly-anticipated sequel to Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. The title is being scheduled for an October 13, 2009 release. If we were to see a Jak & Daxter title for PS3 by Naughty Dog, we could expect a release of 2011, as shown by Naughty Dog’s biannual PS3 release schedule.
There is also a Jak & Daxter title in development called Jak & Daxter: The Lost Frontier, though it is currently in development by High Impact Games. The PSP/PS2 title will release November 18th, 2009.
