If you were to tell us today that a new Uncharted game was in the works, we'd really have no reason to doubt any of it after Uncharted 4's success. Not to mention the fact that a major movie is on the way, so why wouldn't Sony Interactive Entertainment want to cash in on it? But a new job listing has people convinced that it's not just in the works, but a certainty that it's in production as we speak. The listing is for a Lead Character Artist, to be hired to work on "the next chapter of cinematic story-telling", which is the byline people are focused on.
If the game is in the works, chances are we're not going to be hearing about it until probably 2020. The idea that them hiring an artist at this point and to have anything ready beyond a teaser for E3 is unlikely. But knowing how Sony pulled themselves out of basically everything under the sun for 2019, the best bet is that the next Uncharted game will be for whatever the PS5 turns out to be.
