Although Uncharted 2 has yet to be formally confirmed, there are clues that Nathan Drake may return to the big screen again.
In a company-wide email following its release in the United States, Sony CEO Tom Rothman complimented the film on its success, calling it a “new hit movie franchise” (via Deadline). Uncharted has a global box office total of $373 million, which isn’t bad.
The ending of Uncharted obviously sets up Nate’s return, and director Ruben Fleischer revealed to ScreenRant that a sequel is in the works if it is confirmed.
“When you sit in an editing room for a year working on a movie, it’s impossible not to conjure about more adventures to take these men on,” he remarked. “So, yeah, if we get to develop a sequel, I’ve got a lot of ideas for things I’d like to attempt.”
Uncharted 2 release date rumors
As previously said, Uncharted 2 has yet to be formally announced, hence no release date has been set.
The first film was supposed to begin filming in March 2020, however due to the ongoing global pandemic, it was postponed. Production began in July 2020 and ended in October 2020, with reshoots beginning in July 2021.
As a result, Uncharted’s release date was pushed back several times until finally appearing in theatres in February 2022. According to a similar timeframe, we won’t see a sequel until at least 2024, and that’s assuming filming begins this year.
Holland is one of the most in-demand actors in the world right now because to his role as Spider-Man, so his schedule may be a little full for the time being. Even if Spider-Man 4 isn’t made, he has the Fred Astaire biopic and the Apple series The Crowded Room to look forward to.
Holland has also revealed that following The Crowded Room, he will take a sabbatical from acting, though he did not specify how long that break will last. We can’t blame him because he’s been quite busy.
When Sony confirms a sequel, we’ll hopefully get a better notion of when Nate will return to our screens.
Plot Theories for Uncharted 2
There is currently no official plot synopsis for Uncharted 2. However, we can begin to map out Uncharted 2’s plot thanks to the two post-credit scenes at the end of the previous film and the videogames on which the film is based.
After narrowly escaping Sully’s ex, Braddock’s greedy clutches, Nathan and Sully start their treasure hunting alliance in Uncharted. However, as the film’s credits reveal, the duo is only getting started, and a new criminal adversary has already stepped in to take Braddock’s position.
Gage, a treasure hunter after Nathan’s family ring, was introduced, and in the second post-credit scene, Sully and Nathan were seen fleeing from him after a botched transaction. So it appears like Uncharted 2 will begin with Sully and Nathan on the run, with Gage close behind.
Fans of the Uncharted games will know that the first film wasn’t a direct adaptation, but rather a loosely structured prequel that incorporated elements from all of the games in the series. With that in mind, we may expect Uncharted 2 to depart from the original game’s narrative. However, it’s possible that a large portion of the narrative will be devoted to a plot comparable to that of Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune.
Remember the ring we talked about earlier? In the games, that family relic is the key to uncovering Sir Francis Drake’s, Nathan’s ancestor’s, coffin – which also happens to provide the location of El Dorado, the hidden city of gold.
Nathan and Sully’s next treasure-hunting quest will most likely follow the same beats as Drake’s Fortune, given how essential the ring was in the post-credit scene. So pack your belongings because the gang appears to be travelling to South America.
We also know that the sequel will delve into the whereabouts and backstory of Nathan’s long-lost brother, Sam. Sam is depicted alive in prison in the first post-credit scene in Uncharted, writing Nathan a postcard warning him to “guard his back.”
Uncharted 2 will most likely reveal why Sam is still alive, why he is in prison, and why Sully may have lied to Nathan about his brother’s death. It’s all very spicy, and we’re looking forward to seeing what Sony has in store for Uncharted fans.
