#Naughty Dog, which is the studio behind the "Uncharted" series and "The Last of Us," is set to release the latest installment in the "Uncharted" series, which is being called "The #Lost Legacy," this coming August. The story will feature Chloe as its main protagonist. She'll be joined in the game by Nadine Ross, who was introduced in "Uncharted 4: A Thief's End."

Originally, we were supposed to get an "Uncharted 4" story expansion, however, that project ended up being "The Lost Legacy." The game is being pushed as a standalone "Uncharted" game, and not as a DLC expansion, which brings up a few interesting questions: How long will it be? Will it be the last game in the series? Well, both questions were recently answered by the game's creative director, Shaun Escayg during an interview with Euro Gamer.

Will 'The Lost Legacy' mark the end for 'Uncharted'?

Naughty Dog's decision to move away from Nathan Drake's story has raised a lot of questions, with the most frequent one being: Is this the final "Uncharted" game? Well, the answer to that question, according to the game's creative director, is no.

"I wouldn't say it's the end," said Escayg. "This thieving world is huge. There's so many characters."

During the interview, Escayg said that before the studio settled on Chloe as the game's main protagonist, they considered doing a story with Victor Sullivan and Charlie Cutter. So, who knows? Maybe that'll end up being the next game, if the studio decides to continue on with the franchise.

Is it truly a standalone 'Uncharted' game?

While Naughty Dog isn't charging the standard price for "The Lost Legacy," the game's price isn't exactly much cheaper than every other AAA game is at launch, and because of that, people are questioning if buying the game at its full price will actually be worth it.

"It's a full game," said Escayg during his Euro Gamer interview. "It's kind of the sum of all Uncharteds."

'The Lost Legacy' at E3

To the surprise of many, "Uncharted: The Lost Legacy" kicked off last week's Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) with a brand new story trailer. Of course, many expected to see it at the event, but not many predicted that it would be the show's big opener.

In case you missed it, you can check out the brand new story trailer for "Uncharted: The Lost Legacy" below. The game will be available for digital download and as a hard copy on August 22. It is, of course, a PlayStation exclusive, and its launch price will be $49.99.
