In February 2022, after a long wait of several years, Sony Pictures finally released the action-adventure based on the video game franchise, Uncharted. Raised over $400 million from the Box Office, the film became a huge success. That’s why fans have been curious about Uncharted 2’s chances ever since. Here’s what we know about it.
Uncharted by Sony Pictures, created by Ruben Fleischer, Rafe Lee Judkins and Art Marcum, is the live-action adaptation of the popular video game franchise of the same name. The film follows street-smart Nathan Drake who is enlisted by treasure hunter Victor Sullivan to help him find the 500-year-old hidden riches collected by explorer Ferdinand Magellan.
What could Uncharted 2 be about?
The final scene of Uncharted introduces Gage, a person who works for Roman, one of the video game antagonists. Nate’s ring, which used to belong to Sir Francis Drake, has caught Gage’s attention. The riddle surrounding Nate’s alleged ancestors could be explored in Uncharted 2. It results in another thrilling treasure hunt, albeit a little more intimate than the one in the previous film.
In addition, the conclusion of Uncharted introduces Gage, a figure working for Roman, one of the video game antagonists. Nate’s ring, previously held by Sir Francis Drake, has caught Gage’s attention. It’s possible that Nate’s alleged ancestor will be explored in depth in Uncharted 2. This could result in a different kind of thrilling treasure hunt than the one in the previous film.
Who will be the villain?
In the second scene after the credits, Holland’s Nate is shown negotiating with an unknown new character. Before the character cheats on Nate and tries to keep both, the transaction involves Nate handing over his famous ring in exchange for a Nazi card from World War II. Gage turns out to be Asbaek’s character. Although Gage is a unique character, he states that Roman is his employer. This is a reference to the original Uncharted video game.
Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, the first game in the series, featured Nate and Sully. They sought Sir Francis Drake’s coffin, hoping to follow it to the fabled El Dorado-esque hidden city. In Drake’s Fortune, Gabriel Roman was the second stakeholder, as in other Uncharted games, and Drake’s goal was to locate the hidden city for them. Roman was a notorious British criminal with a passion for priceless antiques and misplaced riches. In Drake’s Fortune, he is one of the main opponents, and the film’s sequel could feature him.
When is Uncharted 2 coming?
Although Sony Picture’s Uncharted hit theaters in February 2022, the film was about 14 years in the making. But hopefully fans won’t have to wait that long for the series’ sequel. According to the reports, given the success of the first film, Sony Studios is interested in bringing the sequel. Despite the second film not being officially confirmed, the head of Sony Studious stated that Uncharted is the start of “a brand new franchise for us”. His statement indicates that Uncharted 2 is the schedule of things for the studio. But as of now, we don’t know when the second movie will come.
