Naughty Dog has announced its popular 2016 mobile game Uncharted: Fortune Hunter is being discontinued. Treasure maps and in-game purchases have been already been removed from the free action-puzzle game.
While Uncharted: Fortune Hunter can no longer be downloaded from Google Play or the App Store, players can continue playing their downloaded copies in offline mode.
However, and this is very important, you must keep Uncharted: Fortune Hunter on your mobile device if you want to keep playing. If you delete it, you will not be able to download the game again!
Why shut Uncharted: Fortune Hunter down? While Naughty Dog has been tight-lipped about its motivation, it is likely a combination of this game having very few players and the company wishing to focus more time and other resources on future games.
However, players have been waiting for a proper new game in the Uncharted franchise since A Thief’s End came out in 2016. While there have been a spinoff, compilation collections, and even a movie since then, Fortune Hunter has remained one of the best ways for players to continue the adventures of Nathan Drake.
Ultimately, we’re going to miss Fortune Hunter. But our fingers are firmly crossed that we’ll be playing Uncharted 5 sooner rather than later.
