Naughty Dog "fully expects" another Jak and Daxter game

PS3 News | Naughty Dog's Co-President provides us with some good news.
Naughty Dog has just finished development on Uncharted Drake's Fortune but one franchise that fans would like to see rekindled is the Jak and Daxter series. Four Jak and Daxter games were released on the PlayStation 2 but we haven't heard anything yet about future Jak and Daxter games.

Recently, in an interview with PALGN Naughty Dog's co-president Evan Wells we asked Evan whether Naughty Dog want to continue the Jak franchise, Evan responded "Yes, it's certainly something that a lot of Naughty Dog staff still feel very passionate about. We were sort of getting creatively tapped out. We spent our last five years on the franchise and we definitely needed this break. But I fully expect we'll be doing some Jak and Daxter in the future, I don't know when, but yeah."

We probed a little more and made mention of Insomniac's Ratchet and Clank Future Tools of Destruction and Evan continued "I have played [Ratchet and Clank] and it is fantastic. I'd really like to do Jak and Daxter but I'd like to do something very different, I wouldn't want to just do something we did on the PlayStation 2 - I'd like to do something really special."

I really want a J&D game for PS3.J&D and Ape escape are the only platform games I like other than some of the older 2D platform games.
