Its critical reception is almost unparalleled, and whilst global sales numbers remain under wraps for the time being, developer Naughty Dog has said that its latest release Uncharted 2 has eclipsed the achievements of the first game in the series.
I would definitely say it’s exceeding expectations,” Naughty Dog’s creative director Amy Hennig told IndustryGamers.
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 confirmed to the site that the first DLC for the game shouldn’t be too far away.
We’re working on that now, and what we’re prepared to say is that there will be DLC available before the end of the year,” she added. 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. So we’re definitely taking it very seriously.”
