Uncharted will make its streaming debut on Netflix on July 15. According to What’s On Netflix, the film adaptation of the popular series will debut in the United States first, with other regions to follow.
The release is part of a deal that will also see the heavily meme-heavy and most respectable Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse 2 Morbius go live. Netflix is expected to stream Uncharted for 18 months before it leaves for one of Disney’s services, likely Hulu.
Charting the Uncharted Movie’s Long Path Through Development Hell
Uncharted was released in February and proved to be a hit, grossing over $400 million at the box office. As successful as it was, however, reception was mixed, with IGN’s own review describing it as “a safe but useful sample of a new adventure around the world”.
Uncharted stars Tom Holland and Mark Wahlberg as Nathan Drake and Victor “Sully” Sullivan. It’s an adaptation of Naughty Dog’s popular PlayStation series, which helped define third-person action-adventure games for over a decade.
As Uncharted heads to streaming, Sony is working on other live-action adaptations of its various properties, including Ghost of Tsushima and Gran Turismo. Meanwhile, Netflix recently hosted Geeked Week, with plenty of announcements of its own.
