Bruce Straley and Neil Druckmann answered a few inquiries recently regarding the “The Last of Us 2,” PS4 and working with Sony Computer Entertainment. According to a report from 6aming on Feb. 23, the duo revealed that Naughty Dog is currently not leaning one way or another in regards to a potential sequel to “The Last of Us.” You can find their comments below:
If you’re asking about a sequel… right now I’d say it’s 50/50.
The first video game in the series came out last year on June 14th exclusively for the PS3 current-generation console. The potential sequel should end up on the PS4 as multiple first-party development teams, including one of Naughty Dog’s divisions that is currently working on the tentatively-titled “Uncharted 4,” have already moved on to the next-generation system.
Bruce Straley and Neil Druckmann also disclosed that Sony Computer Entertainment has “complete trust” in Naughty Dog. As a result, the studio has the freedom to decide which direction to take their next project. You can find some “The Last of Us” screens with the gallery embedded to the left side of the article and the statement from the two directors below:
Sony has complete trust in us. It’s really up to us to come up with something that will keep the team inspired for the next several years — which is why we don’t take the decision of what we’ll work on next lightly.
Naughty Dog has won numerous awards with “The Last of Us” as well as the “Uncharted” series. The same studio previously created the “Crash Bandicoot” and “Jak” franchises before going on to create more mature video games.
