For those of you who are unaware, a gold master disc is the finalized version of the game with all the code intact and prepped and ready to run on production PS4 units. The disc is shipped off to the printing press and prepped for mass shipping and distribution.
Many people are excited for Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, others have become wary of Naughty Dog after lead creative director Neil Druckmann came out in full support of Social Justice Warriors.
Druckmann had tweeted in response to someone else who was uncomfortable with the growing trend of homosexuality in Naughty Dog’s games, saying that he would be adding even more “diversity” and similar content to future Naughty Dog games just because some people made anti-SJW comments directed toward Druckmann and Naughty Dog.
Now as far as The Lost Legacy is concerned, Druckmann admitted that he wasn’t actually involved with the development of that game, so whatever influences of “diversity” he may have wanted to include, likely won’t appear unless the other creative directors decided to add it on their own.
Some gamers are okay with Naughty Dog embracing SJWism, others are a bit peeved that many of Sony’s first-party studios have adopted regressive politics for their games, others simply don’t care and would support Sony and Naughty Dog regardless of where they fall on the political spectrum.
If you’re keen on supporting Sony and Naughty Dog’s push for more diversity politics in video games, you can look to pick up a digital or physical copy of Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, exclusively for the PlayStation 4, when it launches August 22nd.
