Sony has come out with its master plan for the next few years, giving fans an insight into what they can expect from the studio in the times to come. And the announcement has evoked mixed feelings from fans. While there are some that have evoked fans’ interest, there are several that the people hope would never materialise. Tom Holland’s Uncharted 2 falls in the latter category. It’s clear as day from the response received after the plan to make a sequel to the video game adaptation was made official.

When Sony announced that it was officially coming out with Uncharted 2, there were similar reactions. Not many were interested in seeing another version of the story based on the record breaking video game seriesUncharted, which hit the theatres in 2022, didn’t receive the attention many expected it to. Inspite of all the efforts, it gave meagre results.

The film didn’t fare as well as many would have expected it to. A dismal score of 40% on Rotten Tomatoes sums up how the film failed to strike a chord with the critics. And though it might have fared well at the Box Office, fans were largely unsatisfied with the project for it failed to replicate just what they loved about the games.

Ranging from Nathan Drake’s origin tale, to lousy story developing in certain sequences, many things went wrong for the flick. And they all made telling contributions to the film’s reception by fans.

And the last thing they want to witness is a sequel to that.

With Sony declaring their intentions of foraying into this line once more, fans were clear about one thing – they wanted to see none of it.

Uncharted 2’s announcement was not at all how Sony would have expected. Fans took to X in large numbers, showing their displeasure.

While many would be wondering whether there is still time to shelve the project, that doesn’t seem very likely to happen.

It would be rather uncanny if Sony cancelled a project so soon after its announcement. But they can always learn. If only they learnt to give the fans what they want.
