"Jak 4" was a platforming game intended to be developed by Naughty Dog for the PlayStation 3. It was intended to be a soft reboot of the Jak and Daxter franchise with a more realistic art style. The only known evidence of the game's existence is a few concept art that Naughty Dog released.

Why it was Cancelled

  1. At the time Naughty Dog was busy working on Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception so half of the studio was split into a Team B to work on "Jak 4".
  2. The "Team B" themselves didn't feel confident that they could make a real Jak game that could follow up the original trilogy without the rest of Naughty Dog.
  3. Naughty Dog released some of the concept art showing the planned ultra realistic art style they were planning to use for the game. Fans hated the new art style shown.
  4. Naughty Dog decided that the direction they were going for with "Jak 4" would not sit well with fans nor the Team B working on it so they decided to instead make a new IP, The Last of Us.


The game was never released.
