In February 2012, we had the opportunity to talk with Naughty Dog's Neil Druckmann about an abandoned reboot of Jak and Daxter. Today we finally get a look at some of the concept art the studio was working on.

The images come by way of Druckmann's recent IGDA talk captured by Toronto radio station AM640's Andy Borkowski. You can see the entirety of the talk on AM640's website.

Our Take
I appreciate Naughty Dog's reasons for abandoning the Jak & Daxter reboot. Druckmann and partner Bruce Straley were afraid their efforts were more marketing-driven than creatively inspired. The choice to move on and start fresh ultimately led them to The Last of Us. I think they made the right call.
