The Uncharted Series Has Sold Over 40 Million Copies To Date


According to a 10th anniversary panel at last week's PlayStation Experience, the Uncharted series has sold 41.7 million units to date, spanning the entire franchise.

Because this year's Uncharted: Lost Legacy is still on our minds it's easy to forget how many games it has under its belt. Lost Legacy is the seventh game, a remarkable spinoff that feels like a legit entry for a new direction, following four main games with Nate and company, the Vita title Golden Abyss, and the card-based Fight for Fortune.

PlayStation boss Shawn Layden said in May 2016 that franchise sales stood at 28 million, so that means almost 14 million more Uncharted games were sold in the 18 months since. That's a heck of a lot, even if you account for console bundles and multi packs. So while Nathan Drake's story was finished in Uncharted 4, the franchise still has legs, as Lost Legacy has proven.

Naughty Dog has already stated that it has no plans to make another entry anytime soon, but that doesn't mean the franchise couldn't be handed down to another studio. Golden Abyss and Fight for Fortune were made by Sony Bend in Oregon, while the Uncharted Collection was developed by Bluepoint Games in Texas.

In other news, an Uncharted movie is on the way. Stranger Things and Night at the Museum director Shawn Levy is attached to direct, with Tom Holland already cast to play the young Nathan Drake.
