Uncharted 3 Hinted at in Middle East Localization Deal

October 21, 2010 Written by Mike Hartnett

A new localization deal between Rubicon Group Holding and the Modern Electronics Company (MEC), a leading distributor of Sony products in the Middle East, is looking to break down the content barriers that have resulted in the banning of numerous big-name titles in the region by modifying existing game content for the Saudi Arabian market. Speaking with the press, a Rubicon executive happened to mention quite an interesting title… Uncharted 3.

In passing, Ghassan Ayoubi, executive director of Rubicon Holding, mentioned that FIFA 11 and the third installment in the Uncharted franchise could be among the first games to be “Arabised and localized” for the Middle Eastern market. Now, one could look at this in one of two ways; either Mr. Ayoubi was talking about the newly released Uncharted 2: Game of The Year Edition, or he wasn’t. Which leaves the obvious assumption that he was talking about Uncharted 3, yes, you heard us right. It’s already safe to assume that a third Uncharted title is well on it’s way based off of the phenomenal success of the series leading up to this point. But could this perhaps foretell that Uncharted 3 has already been plotted out, with developers now in place to implement “Arab features” and characters? We’d like to think so.

We’ll be sure to keep you all updated if, or more-so when, we hear anything regarding another Uncharted sequel. Until then, be sure to stay tuned to PlayStation LifeStyle!
