Naughty Dog: No news on ‘The Last of Us’ PS4 port; Pondering ‘The Last of Us 2’

Though there may be no new news on the possible port of Naughty Dog’s critically and commercially acclaimed title The Last of Us to the PS4, the studio said they had been brainstorming new IP while also pondering a possible sequel for the hit game, according to a report today from Eurogamer.

The Last of Us 2 is just one of the ideas brainstormed between Naughty Dog creative director Neil Druckmann and Left Behind director Bruce Straley, said Druckmann just a week before The Last of Us gets its only PS3 single-player DLC.

Druckmann said the studio’s approach is one of caution, however, as he said the recently-wrapped up Left Behind left him and Straley exhausted.

“We just wrapped up Left Behind, and Bruce Straley, the game director, and I have been doing this for over four years now, “ Druckmann said. “So it’s just time for a break and to recharge the batteries.”

But the two did work on developing some early ideas of what their next project would be, including tossing around some sequel ideas for The Last of Us and coming up with ideas for new IP.

“It's kind of like how we approached Left Behind,” Druckmann said. “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?”
