On Tuesday, to celebrate the success of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, Naughty Dog released a special ‘5-Year Anniversary’ retrospective piece, reminiscing about the success of the game.

The fourth and final entry in the stories of Nathan Drake was released five years ago and continues to have a popular fan base to this date. The game sees protagonist Nathan Drake forced out of retirement from his treasure hunting ways after he finds out his brother, who he believes to be dead, is alive and kicking.  

Since its launch in 2016, A Thief’s End has had 37 million players worldwide, making it the second most successful PlayStation 4 game of all time, with just Grand Theft Auto V beating it.
