The Last of Us
Developer: Naughty Dog
Platforms: PS3, PS4
Is Naughty Dog brainstorming for The Last of Us 2?
The Last of Us was an incredible game when it released last year. Naughty Dog’s magnum opus was met with incredible acclaim and great commercial reception (having sold over 7 million copies worldwide already). The title is due out on the PS4 as a remaster at the end of this month, so you would think Naughty Dog is done with the game for now, especially since they said, much to the fans’ dismay, that the game was planned as a one shot.
Well, it will make you very happy to know that Naughty Dog is in fact contemplating a sequel.
“I think we always make a smart decision in that all of our games are self-contained stories so they don’t have to continue if we don’t want them to or if there’s no reason for them to continue,” Meyer explained while discussing ideas for a sequel. “It really comes down to is there something interesting in this universe we’ve created that we want to continue to explore? Is it something that we can get the entire team passionate about? Is it something we can get the creative directors excited about and then we could continue it?
“We’re just starting to explore ideas of what more could there be in this universe and starting that decision process. That doesn’t mean the end result is guaranteed,” they said to VideoGamer.
Of course, if the sequel is greenlighted, it won’t be a thing for a while, especially with Naughty Dog currently hard at work on Uncharted 4 for the PS4.
