Those of you currently waiting for an Uncharted 2 single-player demo are about to feel very let-down indeed: you’re not getting one. While there is still a public multiplayer trial coming on October 13 to give everyone a taste of Nathan Drake and co. shooting each other in the face, deathmatch stylee, you’re not getting a taste of the real meat of the game until it comes out.

But why? Speaking in an interview with 1UP, Naughty Dog’s Amy Hennig said some words to the effect of:

It’s always tough to do a single-player demo. You can always argue whether it benefits you or not in the long run, because so much of it depends on you understanding where you are in the narrative, and then appreciating what’s going on in the single-player demo.”

Which were swiftly followed up by this nugget from Evan Wells:

“Not to mention that it’s a 12-15 hour experience and you have to somehow collapse that into 15 minutes. I mean, we have something like hundreds of moves to train you over several hours, and if you just drop somebody into the fire…”

So there you have it. Uncharted 2 is still going to be great though, clearly.
