Before the stu­dio Naughty Dog was one of Sony’s biggest first-par­ty devel­op­ers with series like The Last of Us and Unchart­ed, they estab­lished them­selves in the ear­ly 2000s with Jak & Dax­ter. This plat­froming adven­ture series has been dor­mant since 2008, and it appears there are no new Jak & Dax­ter games are cur­rent­ly in development.

At the recent Acad­e­my of Inter­ac­tive Arts and Sci­ence’s Game Mak­er’s Note­book series, co-pres­i­dent of Naughty Dog Evan Wells was asked by Insom­ni­ac’s Ted Price if the stu­dio still receives requests from fans to devel­op a new Jak & Dax­ter game.

We do, in fact,” Wells replied (as tran­scribed by VGC) at the event. “We’ve had a cou­ple of Twit­ter cam­paigns where peo­ple have been tweet­ing us every sin­gle day [say­ing] ‘I want a new Jak & Dax­ter, I want a new Jak & Dax­ter’, and they aren’t just sim­ple 280-char­ac­ter tweets, they have Pho­to­shopped memes and every­thing they’re includ­ing on a dai­ly basis, and the effort has got to be significant.”

Wells added that the stu­dio still has a lot of love for the fran­chise, but there are no new plans to con­tin­ue the series.

I hate to break it to them, but we do not have Jak & Dax­ter here in devel­op­ment right now. But we still love the char­ac­ters and I see what you guys [at Insom­ni­ac] are doing with Ratch­et and that makes me wish that we did, and we would have one in devel­op­ment, because there’s still a lot of love for Jak & Dax­ter in the studio.”
