Naughty Dog comments on Savage Starlight game, has “no plans” for PS Vita at present

Naughty Dog has taken to Reddit and addressed fans on several things, such as what it’s up to next, Savage Starlight, thoughts on PS4 and debunking chatter that it’s developing for PS Vita. Choice quotes inside.

It comes as Naughty Dog acknowledged receipt of 120 PS4 dev kits. Interesting.

In the thread, Uncharted 3′s game director Justin Richmond and lead multiplayer designer Robert Cogburn discussed many things, chiefly, PlayStation 4.

“The PS4 is awesome”, Cogburn enthused. “It gives us the chance to do a lot of things we’ve been talking about for some time. You’ll be in awe when you play it”.

We’re still not sure what the team is working on. Naughty Dog recently confirmed it was working on a Jak & Daxter reboot, but that the project was subsequently scrapped.

Users also quizzed the duo on Savage Starlight, the space-faring adventure depicted in comic collectibles found in The Last of Us. When asked it it’s actually a game, Richmond said, “If only the Starlight wasn’t so Savage…”

While this sounds like a tease, OPM has reminded us of a tweet from Naughty Dog president Christophe Balestra, that seems to debunk the game’s existence.

Do you think Savage Starlight is happening?

Elsewhere, Richmond said of the studio’s next project, “We will continue to make the games that we want to play. For now that is character based, narrative driven games.” He added that this focus, “could change in the future.”

On Vita he concluded that Naughty Dog has, “no plans to develop on Vita at this moment”.

There you have it. What do you make of the above?

    All I know, and care about is that these guys and gals keep doing what they are doing.

    Because they are blatantly doing something very right.

    I do wonder where they’d take the next Uncharted, but i also would love a Savage Starlight game, a slightly tongue in cheek space opera from Naughty Dog would most likely be AMAZING!

    Savage Starlight……. I would say by the comment its happening.

    Its exciting to say the least. Another masterpiece, a visual feast, and revolutionary gameplay to compliment a vast engrossing story, its not even confirmed and they have my cash if its true. Naughty Dog is the best developers around.

    Thats right Naughty Dog keep avoiding the handheld market by saying what third party publishers say in regards to Wii U and PS Vita.

    If the first party has given up PS VITA, how will the third parties save this poor-saled handheld console?

    Now it seems to me that SCE considers PSVITA only as a controler of PS4, that’s really rediculious.

    A Savage Starlight would be awesome and ND is known to tease a bit here and there so you never know. First uncharted though unless they have two teams again.
