NAUGHTY DOG CLARIFIES THE LAST OF US 2 CHATTER


Naughty Dog’s Neil Druckmann, writer and creative director on The Last of Us, has shed a little more light on the status of a potential sequel to the studio’s acclaimed 2013 survival horror masterpiece.


In an interview with Official PlayStation Magazine (via GamesRadar) Druckmann explained that a prototype for The Last of Us 2 was being put together (amongst several other ideas).

“[W]hen Bruce (Straley, game director ) and I moved over to Uncharted 4, we were brainstorming ideas for The Last Of Us 2 with new characters; ideas for TLOU 2 with Joel and Ellie; ideas for a sci-fi game; ideas for a fantasy game, and building prototypes for each one of those ideas. And just as we were getting close to settling or narrowing that list down, we were asked to work on Uncharted 4.”

In June, voice actor and regular Naughty Dog collaborator Nolan North mentioned he knew the team was working on The Last of Us 2, and last week Naughty Dog writer Josh Scherr caused a stir by overtly referring to the original game as “the first The Last of Us.”

Druckmann went on to concede that North wasn’t exactly mistaken, although stressed the team doesn’t know for sure what it will be doing next.

“You know, there’s a part of me that’s really looking forward to going back to those things, but I have no cycles left in my mind even to be thinking about that right now!” he said. “So, I guess he (North) was kind of right in that we were working on stuff, but we don’t know what we’re doing next and we won’t know until probably a few months after we finish Uncharted 4.”
