Naughty Dog has been quite active on Twitch lately and has been hosting a few streams for fans of the studio’s Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. Naughty Dog’s Quentin Cobb, Robert Ryan and Vinit Agarwal were the hosts of the latest stream and they were more than happy to speak openly about the future of the game.
Fans of the game’s multiplayer have been begging the studio on Twitter, Twitch and where ever else they can get their voices heard, for the team to implement live-stats, clans with their own names, and more.
Naughty Dog’s trio iterated that some things are trickier than others, so while the developers are actively working to bring some solutions to players with regards to clans, rank numbers and live-stats, not everything will make it through to the multiplayer suite; the road map laid out by the studio back before Uncharted 4’s release is still the main priority for the California-based outfit.
It’s not all bad news, though, as the game’s at-times woeful multiplayer matchmaking is being tweaked as we speak. The main problem that some players are facing is that once they leave the training grounds for new players, they’re being thrown in with much higher ranked opponents who’ve obviously invested a lot more time into the game and so are naturally able to outpace the newer players. It’s something Naughty Dog is working on making a little fairer.
And finally, the developers also revealed that there are some “really cool” game mode ideas being thrown around in Naughty Dog HQ. Those who’ve poured over the mutliplayer road map will already know that there will be more game modes in future updates, but we don’t know what they are and Naughty Dog is teasing rather than telling.
