The Jak & Daxter video game is one that could almost claim to be treasured amongst gaming fans but while there have been various spin-offs such as racing games or PSP titles; there has not been a game in the main series since the 2004 release of Jak 3. This however may change as developer Naught Dog, who are well known for the Uncharted series, have hinted that there may be a new Jak & Daxter game sometime in the future during an interview with GameInformer.
Here is what Naughty Dog co-president, Evan Wells, said on the topic of another Jak and Daxter game:
“What I hear a lot recently [from fans] is to make another Jak & Daxter game. My answer always is we’d love to do it, there’s a lot of love for the franchise and it has a special place in our hearts for sure, but we’re sort of heads down, working on one game at a time now and are focusing on Uncharted, but we’d love to go back to it at some point.”
So fingers crossed for a new game in the Jak & Daxter series and I must say that it is nice to see developers listening to what their fans want which you don’t see a lot that often, especially since it is concerning a franchise that was started on a previous generation of consoles.
