10 Mind-Blowing Facts You Never Knew About The Last Of Us

9. It Was Going To Be A Jak And Daxter Reboot

After the success of Uncharted 2, Naughty Dog was split into two teams, with Druckmann and Uncharted 2 director Bruce Straley going about the task of rebooting the Jak And Daxter series. Druckmann and company looked to Uncharted 2 for inspiration on the direction of the new Jak game, hoping to take everything they learned from the experience and retool it for the purpose of crafting an entirely new take on the Jak series. Character designs were almost completely overhauled to be more in tune with more realistic tone of the game, but as development continued the team began to express doubts about the project - with every new idea came the question of how much was too much, and if they were possibly shortchanging the fans by simply slapping the game with a Jak And Daxter label despite the vague resemblance. Druckmann and his team eventually took their concerns to their superiors and were given the green light to make whatever game they wanted.
