Naughty Dog Is Considering The Last of Us Sequel
This is something that Naughty Dog shouldn’t even entertain but The Last of us writer Neil Druckmann suggested that a sequel might even spawn a new IP. In fact, they might just start an entirely new IP.
Speaking with Eurogamer, Druckmann said, “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?”
When asked to discuss rumours that The Last of Us is coming to PS4 with Left Behind bundled, Druckmann replied “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.”
Naughty Dog is currently working on Uncharted for PS4 but what would you like to see them do next?
Personally, I’d like something as impactful as The Last of Us that pushes their ability as developers. Wishful thinking tells me to ask for a new Crash Bandicoot game.
