    A new Jak and Daxter almost happened.

    According to this article I read Naughty Dog thought long and hard about making a new Jak and Daxter game befor finally deciding on doing The Last of Us.

    Naughty Dog “extensively” explored new Jak & Daxter before The Last of Us | VG247

    What is everyone's thoughts on this? Would you rather seen a new Jak and Daxter or are you happy with the direction Naughty Dog have taken?

    Here's the thing... Everyone wants something new and great. But even if the new IP is crap then they can fall back and release Jak4 next and make up their losses. But as I have said before when has ND let us down with a new series?

    I say why not do both. Once they finish with The Last of Us they should get to work on Jak 4.

    It seems like ND has their minds set on making this game amazing.

    'How do you know I'm mad?' said Alice.

    I'm happy on how The Last of Us is turning out, so I'm satisfied with them going that route instead of a new Jak & Daxter.

    Totally agreed with you. Jak 4 is going to be epic (assuming it's going to come out?).
    Please no blank friend requests, otherwise I won't add them. Thanks!

    Fixed.
    I understand their decision, because they would try too hard to make the new game great, but it wouldn't look like Jak & Daxter.
    The games in that series were cartoonish for a reason, and so much detail on such a basic design could mess up everything good about the simplicity. I say move forward with the new games for now, and then think about the best way to go back.

    I'd rather see The Last of Us than a Jak 4, even though I haven't played any Jak games. If a series is a trilogy and ends, it's probably better off to keep the trilogy as is. Maybe make a spin off or a game that goes in between events of previous games would be fine, but a main game I wouldn't be too fond of. Doesn't mean I wouldn't play it though.

    the more i think about it, the more neutral i become
    on the one hand, i'm always sad to see a series (especially a favorite) die
    on the other, they did make Jak 4 and it was crap and...*gasp* Naughty Dog didn't make Jak 4..other people did, that's why it was crap!! there is still hope..they can kick it off as a spin-off, and re-work something good because Naughty Dog is...well, other than Jak and Crash Bandicoot i haven't played anything else of theirs..but those 2 series were enough to know they've got talent, and should continue with BOTH series (now that i remembered Crash, i want one that doesn't suck {it was too different} for the PS3)

    I'd like a new Jak. Everyone's going gaga over The Last of Us, when there's only been one trailer and a few screenshots. I'm not convinced yet.

    Don't they also just stick to a certain platform with franchises? PS One for Crash Bandicoot, PS2 for Jak & Daxter, PS3 for Uncharted?

    Unless I'm proven wrong, it might just be a coincidence.

    If they 'extensively explored' a possible jak 4 id put my money on that they havnt given up on it yet, they did enough to get a story etc for it and they will save it for a rainy day and BAM get all fans back instantly... thats my 2 cents anyway

    Wait a minute, what about the other half of Naughty Dog? Uncharted is over. Maybe UnJchaartked 4?

    I'm happy they are taking a new direction rather than falling back on something that has been done.

    I'm just glad that they're thinking of doing something that's not Uncharted. Don't get me wrong; it's great but it's too gerenic.

    I'm in agreement with what is implied here. They specifically said they hired a whole new team that is making The Last of Us. What is the first team doing now, besides tweaking and milking the Uncharted 3 MP?
    Continuing to explore Jak 4, that's what!
    Considering that we got the HD remake of Sly, and now a Sly 4 is on the way (and arguably looks better than the "Jak 4" that we already got, a.k.a. Lost Frontier), I see no reason why ND wouldn't continue to explore a possible, proper Jak 4 depending on how sales of the HD Collection turn out. I'll hold out hope. I think Jak and Daxter would look cool in true 1080p. MAKE IT HAPPEN, ND!

    Actually, it will most likely be 720p, since Naughty Dog games are 720p, and well most top games are.
