Naughty Dog has made it clear that they plan on supporting Uncharted 3 with new content for the game’s co-op and competitive multiplayer modes, but what about extending the single player experience via downloadable content?
Apparently the Uncharted developer isn’t too fond of the idea. In an interview Eurogamer had with game director Justin Richmond, Richmond made it clear that the developer would much rather put their efforts toward making their next game, rather than spend time crafting DLC.
There’s a very specific reason. Whenever we sit down and think we should do some single-player DLC, someone pitches something and we realize – that’s a five hour level.
We’d rather build out another game than we would do episodic content. We’re so small that we can’t afford to have a whole team working on DLC.
While gamers might not get future add-ons to the campaign, at least they can rest assured that Naughty Dog isn’t gimping the single-player experience, only to parcel it out later as DLC.
