Naughty Dog hints at ‘secrets dropped around the Internet’

Monday, 3rd March 2014 21:41 GMT By Brenna Hillier

The Last of Us and Uncharted developer Naughty Dog has apparently been hiding information in plain sight, and is “surprised” fans haven’t it – whatever it is.


In a comment on a blog post on the developer’s website, Naughty Dog web developer Jason Paul hinted that fans should be on the look out for some sort of mysterious information.

“I’m just surprised no one has yet to find some of the secrets we have dropped around the internet,” he said.

The comment appeared on a thread discussing both Uncharted and The Last of Us, in which fans requested information regarding upcoming releases and DLC plans. It’s not clear which franchise Paul was referring to, although as The Last of Us still has one DLC pack to come, and it’s a multiplayer affair, Uncharted seems the more likely candidate – especially as a new Uncharted was announced for PlayStation 4 late last year.

OPM collated a list of websites created by Paul in his role as web developer, as well as a number of social media accounts connected to The Last of Us, but nobody seems to have turned up anything meaningful yet.

If Uncharted 4 is due for reveal, we’ll probably see it at E3 2014 in June. The E3 teases are sure to start piling up now that we’re a few months out; already today we’ve had a spurious hint that we’ll see Dishonored 2.

    “I’m just surprised no one has yet to find some of the secrets we have dropped around the internet,”

    Yeah. He probably hid them in the linux server in some African country and asks people.. Why they have not found anything. – sarcasm

    Just because you are a web developer does not mean that players have the same education to find all this secret stuff all over the internet that has billion’s of links. You need to make a small hint before you will start do this…

    Normally, the internet community it pretty fast at finding such stuff… Maybe this will lead to people searching and eventually finding something.

    I’m looking foreward to the next uncharted game more than anything else since 2011.

    @kibblz X14EVR is a joke, spamming every Sony comment they can.

    Naughty Dog is a highly acclaimed developer, masters of their craft.

    TLOU was amazing, as were the Jak games & Uncharted series, can’t wait to hear more about what they’ve been working on.

    @MrSec84 TLOU was okay but Uncharted and Jak series were a blast.

    Well, Naughty Dog game designer Peter Javidpour made this:

    As cool as that is, doubt its a clue though.

    Just putting it out there which I’m sure someone may be able to rule this out. No one ever said Uncharted and The Last of Us occurred in seperate universes.

    I mean the Uncharted Newspaper clippings even hi t it is in the same world.

    Now that could mean drakes alive after the apocalypse or Joel knew drake. Or I dunno the potential of a dlc where Ellie meets drakes kid in the future.

    I mean there’s a lot of an open end there and no one ever seems to touch on that

    @10 There’s a poster on the bus at the beginning with “BATTLESHIP” and text underneath it saying something like “awake”(?). Strange.

    Another one of his websites is: as seen in THIS video:
    Also, the “cat” playing in the background, is fake. That might be a reference to that cat in the Uncharted series.
