Naughty Dog’s next game “too far along” to include Move support

Naughty Dog’s been pretty hush-hush about whatever it’s currently got cooking, but the developer’s finally thrown us a bone.

The gist? Nathan Drake’s faced many dangerous obstacles over the years, but tacked-on Move support won’t be one of them.

“Maybe in the future. Right now, it’s kind of difficult because we’re so focused on the next thing. It would be too late for us to start thinking about that. Move certainly has potential,” Naughty Dog co-president Christophe Balestra told Game Informer (via CVG).

Fellow president Evan Wells agreed, noting that he originally thought the Wii would be just another passing fad, trampled by an increasingly fickle audience in the mad rush to The Next Big Thing. Despite a recent change of heart, however, he’s not hitching his horse to motion control’s wagon without making sure he does it right.

“I think if we were going to tackle a game that supported Move, we would want to do it from the ground up. We’re too far along into what we’re working on next to really do it justice,” he explained.

No Drake’s Sports and Yoga with Nintendogs and Party Babyz, then? Bummer.
