Naughty Dog Brainstorming New Ideas Including The Last of Us Sequel, New IP
Writer Neil Druckmann also discusses The Last of Us on PS4.
The Last of Us: Left Behind DLC is out and already garnering rave reviews, but writer Neil Druckmann has revealed to Eurogamer that currently, the team is brainstorming on several new ideas. These include a new IP and even The Last of Us 2.
“We just wrapped up Left Behind, and Bruce Straley, the game director, and I have been doing this for over four years now. So it’s just time for a break, and to recharge the batteries.
“We have started brainstorming some stuff. To be honest, some of them are sequel ideas, and some of them are brand new IP – we’ve spent the last few weeks brainstorming new IP. So we have to get some good steps and see… It’s kind of like how we approached Left Behind.
“Can we tell people a story that’s really worth telling, and that’s not repeating itself? And if we can’t, where can we get inspired – what is something that’s really going to challenge us, and push storytelling in this medium forward?”
But will The Last of Us and Left Behind come to the PS4 as part of a bundle? Druckmann responded that, “We have such limited resources, and it’s a question of where you put the resources. It’s something where we can have a feel of where the demand is, and where our time is best spent. It’s something that we’ll figure out as we move forward.”
