Game Informer: Uncharted: The Lost Legacy's Approach To Gender Diversity And Inclusion

Today, Naughty Dog is busy working on two titles that are female-driven: The Last of Us Part II, where you play as Ellie, and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, where Chloe and Nadine are reintroduced, but this time as protagonists. The Lost Legacy is the first game from Naughty Dog with two female leads who are also of color, with Nadine being a black woman and Chloe being half Indian. "Two women of color, that was happenstance, but weíll take it," says writer Josh Scherr. "That representation is also important. Itís not the primary thing but itís nice that itís happening. I have a daughter and I would like her to see more positive role models or representations in games and the media in general."

Naughty Dog told us that while it believes having characters with different genders and backgrounds is important for representation, the team is first and foremost concerned about building realistic, human stories that are impactful. Choosing Chloe and Nadine as the two faces for The Lost Legacy had more to do with the team being fascinated with them for who they are, and how the two would contrast one another.
