As if there were any doubt, Naughty Dog officially has a hit on its hands in Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. Speaking with IndustryGamers, Naughty Dog Creative Director Amy Hennig said that Nathan Drake’s latest caper is breaking new ground on the sales charts.
“I would definitely say it’s exceeding expectations,” she said. “Being in the industry for a while you learn to try to manage your expectations because you’d rather be surprised with good news than disappointed. It’s a tough business, but from the early numbers I’ve seen getting reported back it’s exceeded any estimates we had internally, and it’s certainly outsold the first game by many, many times. That and the critical reception so far has been really gratifying.”
Hennig also added that we can expect our first helping of Uncharted 2 DLC before the year’s out.
“Without going into specifics, it’ll involve new maps, new characters, things like that. Some of it will be free of charge and some of it will be purchasable. We’ve got a lot of people on the team working on this stuff, some really cool stuff that people will be excited about,” she explained.
Are you excited? You should be. Amy Hennig said so.
