The Last of Us 2 Is A Possibility

According to The Last of Us’ writer and creative director, Naughty Dog has already discussed the possibilities of a sequel to its critical hit.

In speaking with Eurogamer, Neil Druckmann revealed that the studio is beginning to think where to go next, whether that’ll be a sequel or starting a new IP entirely.

“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,” he said. “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?”

There are currently two internal teams over at Naughty Dog, one that has recently finished The Last of Us DLC- Left Behind, and another that is developing Uncharted for the PS4. There have been rumors swirling around that tease that The Last of Us might get a PS4 port, but Naughty Dog has refused to comment.

“We have such limited resources, and it’s a question of where you put the resources,” Druckmann said about a possible next-gen port. “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.”

Until we finally hear what’s next for Druckmann and his team, you can check out the Left Behind DLC on February 14.
