Happy New Year from Naughty Dog

124 0

All of us at Naughty Dog wanted to wish everyone a Happy Holidays and a very Happy New Year!


2009 has been both incredibly busy AND amazing year for us on all counts. We started the year off working hard on UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves and we had no idea what was going to be in store for us and for our fans as the year progressed.

We had our heads down for most of the year making sure we put together an awesome game that we think you would like, but when E3 came around, we took a moment to stop and realize that things were really coming together as UNCHARTED 2 picked up over 20 awards when all was said and done. It’s safe to say we were stoked to get this recognition and it made us kick things up a notch over the next several months as we were putting the finishing touches on our game. When we released UNCHARTED 2 in October to critical acclaim, we were looking forward to hearing what all of our fans thought on NaughtyDog.com, the PlayStation forums, Twitter and anywhere else on the internet you discussed our game. Now, we’re wrapping up the year watching our game win Game of the Year not just once, but many times over and counting — and we couldn’t imagine a better note to end 2009 on.

Everyone at the studio has been on a well-deserved break for the past couple of weeks, taking some time for ourselves and spending time with our friends and families who didn’t get to see too much of us as we were finishing up UNCHARTED 2. Hopefully you’ve caught a few of us enjoying our free time joining you in multiplayer here and there recently. We’ll be back in the studio next week and you’ll be hearing soon after that about some of the DLC we’ve been working on for UNCHARTED 2.

We can’t say it enough – thanks to all of you for being fans of Naughty Dog and our games! We work hard to make games that our fans enjoy and we couldn’t have done it without such great and vocal support from our community.

Happy holidays!

  • Your are very welcome Naughty Dog. Keep up the awesome work and can;t wait for some more DLC.

  • GOTY, for sure. thanks for such an awesome experience. (p.s. – more co-op survival DLC please!)

  • Speaking of DLC any idea when Rika Raja and Pinkerton will be available in places other than Europe?

  • Happy New Year!

    And thanks for the wonderful games Uncharted and Uncharted 2.

    Cant wait for 3.

  • YAY Uncharted 2 DLC!



  • I will buy all of it. I don’t care how you price it either. I love you.

  • Happy New Year to you to Naughty Dog and cheers to the best game of the year, with the multiple awards to prove it, Uncharted 2! W00T!

  • more rounds of coop survival DLC please please please!

  • I’d also like to mention I would pay what ever you ask for a Jak skin in multiplayer

  • Thank You Naughty Dog for being an awesome team of developers/creators and creating amazing games. Here’s to your continued success in 2010 and the years to come. HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL THE DOGS!!!

  • OOOooo…DLC!!

  • Happy New Year to you guys/girls! You’re the best devs in the industry; keep up the good work while I keep dreaming of an HD Crash Bandicoot.

  • Happy New Year to you too, Naughty Dog! New DLC coming this way, and that’s great, but consider a little Jak And Daxter on PS3, eh? Just…keep it in mind, if ever you get enough time… or like #12 mentioned, a Jak skin would be a great start. ^^

    Happy Holidays!


  • Y’all did a fabulous job with Uncharted 2, no question about that… Was one of my most anticipated titles for the PS3, as was the original Uncharted.. I hope 2010 is a great year for Naughty Dog and I look forward to whatever else you may do..
    One question tho, especially for some of the bigger developers, do you intend on ever doing some smaller, PSN titles…?? I’m always curious what might come from a more mainstream developer if they put some efforts into a smaller, quicker title(i know, they arent always that quick to develop).. companies like yourselves, EA, Activision, etc… I wonder what they could do with smaller titles…

  • Spent most of my holiday playing U2, it was amazing. Still need to finish the game in Crushing to get the Platinum though.

    Hope 2010 will be amazing for you guys as well. More DLC, and hopefully announcement of the next game.

  • Happy new year to you too ND! Uncharted 2 was the bright spot in 2009. Can’t wait to see what you have in store for us next!

    p.s. Hope you find a solution to the issue of idle players ;)

  • Happy New Year and congrats on making such a great game! Can’t wait for the DLC, but am still waiting for, like the other poster, for an HD Crash Bandicoot. (buy that ip back from those other devs)

  • Happy New Year ND!

    There were a lot of great games in 2009, but have to say Uncharted 2 was GOTY and possibly of the Decade.

    Thanks, and can’t wait for your next game.


  • Hey ND when are you guys going to release some mine kart Co-op DLC? Every action adventure game HAS to have a mine kart level and now with co-op it could be even better. Anyways happy new year and thanks for a great product.

  • Happy new year “dog”, thanks for the great games….

  • We owe it all to you

  • Happy new year ND, and keep on creating good games as uncharted ;-)

  • Happy New Year to you, Arne, and all the fine people @ Naughty Dog. Congratulations on all the GOTY awards Uncharted 2 has received – well deserved they are. :)

  • P.S Add more co-op and I hope for next time you guys add a split-screen co-op mode.

  • Any word on a Uncharted 2 Dynamic Theme or Premium Avatars?

  • Thank you Naughty Dog for the GOTY! It was well deserved!! Happy 2010, and I can’t wait to see what you have for us PS3 gamers for years to come!!

  • Game of the year, game of the year!
