Uncharted 2: “The demo’s getting closer…” – Naughty Dog’s Evan Wells – UPDATED (again!)

Submitted by on Saturday, 18 April 20092 Comments

Uncharted 2You know Twtitter has arrived when even influential TV moguls have started using it.

We just hope that the recurring trend of Oprah mentioning something; a book, a movie, an album, whatever – and that product or service to then go through the roof popularity wise – will not cause Twitter’s already creaking servers to collapse under the weight of a billion soccer-Mom updates.

We’re been twittering like crazy for a while now and it never ceases to amaze us just what kind of cool information can appear in 140 characters or less.

Like the following: Evan Wells, Co-President of Naughty Dog, set the twitterverse alight just 17 hours ago with the following pithy, yet unbearably intriguing, update:

“The demo’s getting closer…”

With Uncharted 2 hitting our shelves at the end of this year, it’s not too grand a leap to think a demo of Drake’s next adventure will be in our hands over the next few months. It’s highly likely that whatever they’re working on, we’ll get a glimpse at E3.

If you check some of Evan’s other updates, you’ll notice that the Dogs have been performing play-tests recently, incorporating testers’ feedback from the sessions into the next iteration of the build of the game. This is a sure sign that something will soon be ready for mass consumption.

Interestingly, Evan also mentions that they “[…] have a busy few days in front of us. The most important deadline so far on Uncharted 2 is right around the corner!” Does this allude once again to the elusive demo? It could be, considering unleashing your baby on to the public so they can get a taste (and for the developers to gauge their feedback) would be a significant milestone. We’re not sure when an Uncharted 2 demo might surface – smart money would be around fall – but at least this snippet does confirm one thing – we’ll be getting one someday.

Let us know what you think in the comment section below.

Update: The Official PlayStation guys had shed some light on this. There is a demo to journalists next week. We’re assuming Evan and the gang are frantically getting everything for that. This is not to say an Uncharted 2 demo won’t happen for the rest of us of course …

Update: #2

Straight from Evan’s twitter feed:

Clarifying a previous post… we’re working on stabilizing a *build* for an upcoming “demo”nstration of Uncharted 2. NOT a PSN demo! Sorry!
