The Uncharted: Lost Legacy was released on August 22 2017 in North America.

The candidate characters for protagonsit role, where Charlie Cutter, Cassie (Nathan’s daughter), Sam Drake and Victor Sullivan. Eventually, team selected both Chloe Frazer and Nadine Rose from previous games Uncharted 2: Among Thieves and Uncharted 4. Later, it was predetermined that the length of the game will be the same as Left Behind’s, but during the process of development, the team realized that it will be even larger than they estimated: over 10 hours. Chloe and Nadine were respectively voiced by Claudia Black and Laura Bailey. The faces and performances of actors were used for modeling and animating the characters. The history of entire game evolved around Chloe, because team members found that she had an interesting moral type, according to the fact that she was interested in finding not only the artifacts, but also exploring the history of the Tusk of Ganesh, because it had some references to her family.
