Naughty Dog Would Love Another Jak and Daxter

Jak and Daxter will always be known as one of PS2’s heavy weight series. It even got into the Guiness Book of World Records. Now that the PS2 is years past its high point, does Naughty Dog have any plans to revisit Jak and Daxter on the new gaming consoles? There’s a chance of that happening, but Naughty Dog boss Evan Wells doesn’t recommend holding your breath.

“What I hear a lot recently [from fans] is to make another Jak and Daxter game,” he told GameInformer in a recent interview. “My answer always is we’d love to do it, there’s a lot of love for the franchise and it has a special place in our hearts for sure, but we’re sort of heads down, working on one game at a time now and are focusing on Uncharted, but we’d love to go back to it at some point.”

The Uncharted game in question is the highy anticipated Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception. That’s one series that probably won’t be ending anytime soon, since Naughty Dog wants to make Uncharted games as long as there’s a story to tell.

    I’ve never played that game, so I can’t really say if it’s a good or a bad thing.

    However I’ll say this: I love Uncharted as much as the next guy, but I’d love to see something entirely new from this great developer.

    I’ve played a demo in the PS2 days. But it didn’t interest me enough to pick it up.

    I love Jak and Daxter, they were and still PS2 superstars, but honestly with the Uncharted series in hand they already have too much work to do. May be will see a Jak and Daxter reboot with the new console launch =)

    I think they’re going to focus on something new each generation. PS1 had Crash Bandicoot, PS2 had Jak and Daxter, PS3 has Uncharted… PS4 is sure to have something new, but a current/next gen Jak and Daxter is still very welcome IMO

    I played Jak 2, 3 and X. That 3 out of 5. Awesome games. But I like what he said, and thats 1 game at a time. Keep up Uncharted. I prefer that over JAK. I wish other company’s insomniac “cough”. Would do the same. I feel as if they spend so much time on multiply games, that they need to use a engine that would play all their games. And well, multiply ideas that belong in one game ends up being mashed into another.
