However, among all the clips from current and upcoming PS5 games, one live-action clip stands out as being unrecognisable.
It shows a young woman in a cave, with a flaming torch. In a separate brief clip, she can be seen blowing dust off an ancient artefact.
The clips are the only shots that aren’t immediately recognisable, suggesting they may be from an unannounced project.
In a blog article introducing the ad, Sony said: “This new spot hints at the breadth of extraordinary experiences taking place in the PS5 universe through the style of a live news channel. See if you can spot all the game references.”
Uncharted 4 (spoiler warning) ends with Nathan Drake and Elena Fisher’s teenage daughter Cassie discovering relics from their past adventures, and Drake deciding to tell her about them.
It’s believed by some, therefore, that the next Uncharted game could have Cassie as the protagonist, continuing where her parents left off.
Naughty Dog co-president Neil Druckmann claimed last week that the studio has ‘moved on’ from the Uncharted series, but that doesn’t rule out another studio taking on the IP.
And last April, a recruiter at the studio seemingly hinted that Sony could be planning future Uncharted releases.
Announcing that she’d joined Naughty Dog, Christina-Marie Drake McBrearty said it was special “to be building future teams for not only new titles but for the legacy of Uncharted”.
A job listing late last year also said that a new internal development team at Sony was co-developing a game with Naughty Dog based on “a beloved franchise”.
Sony has seemingly teased unannounced games in ads before. In September 2021, a new PlayStation ad contained a Resident Evil 4 symbol, some nine months before the Resident Evil 4 remake was officially announced during a PlayStation State of Play broadcast.
