Reports suggest that a new Uncharted game is in development for the PSP2.
US games publication Game Informer claims it has been told that a spin-off of the popular PS3 adventure series is due for release on Sony’s next handheld by Christmas 2011, according to CVG.
“The developers we talked to described the PSP2 as a very powerful machine,” the magazine wrote. “We’ve even heard that a new Uncharted spin-off – which could even stand in for a full-on Uncharted 3 – is in the works.”
The publication goes on to suggest that the appearance of Uncharted on PSP2 is a good indication of “how powerful the graphics capabilities are for the handheld”.
Uncharted 3 was recently unveiled at the Spike VGA Awards, and is also due for release towards the end of next year, making it likely that the PSP2 spin-off will tie in with Drake’s next console adventure.
