‘The Last of Us 2’ has a ‘50/50’ chance of being created says developer

While Naughty Dog’s post-apocalyptic PS3 exclusive was one of last generation’s most critically acclaimed titles, despite the fact that it didn’t release until just this past year, the developer hasn’t yet decided if The Last of Us will ever receive a sequel. According to a report by Joystiq on Feb 22, The Last of Us Creative Director Neil Druckmann recently responded to several fan questions on Reddit.

Among the various topics discussed, Druckmann revealed the odds that a second game in the series is made could really go either way at this time. When asked about the chances for The Last of Us 2, he gave the following reply.

If you're asking about a sequel... right now I'd say it's 50/50.

Many have argued that the open ending of The Last of Us is one of the narrative’s greatest strengths and that expanding on the story could cause damage to the franchise. Naughty Dog recently released a new single-player DLC for the game, the first time the developer has ever created a story-driven add-on. However, the ending of the main campaign was kept intact due to the fact that The Last of Us: Left Behind took place at a time before Ellie had even met Joel. It is possible that future titles in the series could simply use the same apocalyptic setting and not involve characters from the first game, thus not risking the chance of ruining the self-contained story.

The Last of Us is out now exclusively on the Playstation 3.
