Can you imagine how good the game will be though if they created a 3D platformer. It doesn't sound like their studio is getting any smaller and they don't take their time like SE.
I just really enjoyed Uncharted and believe that they could continue the franchise. If it's not coming out every year I don't think fatigue would set in. Assuming that Uncharted 4 drops Winter 2015 they could focus on a new IP and come back to TLOU or Uncharted 5 for a 2017-2018 release. Again, I'm just a fan of the series and understand that others would prefer them to foucs on new IPs which is understandable.
I'm sure they could make a beautiful 3D platformer but I don't think it would generate the type of buzz or dollars that TLOU did. Personally, I wouldn't spend $60 on a platformer unless it was a Mario game (even then I would still hesitate but nostalgia would kick in ). At this point I'm sure whatever ND does will be a big hit.
