Creator Neil Druckmann teases fans.
Obviously, a sequel to the video games The Last of Us is under consideration! Given the massive success of the series at the start of the year, we imagine that Sony would like to ride the phenomenon to continue the adventures of Ellie and Joel. Neil Druckmancreator and director of the game, who participated in the development of the series with Craig Mazinconfides today that the Naughty Dog studio has something in the works…
During the inauguration of the attraction The Last of Us at Universal Orlando, he said (via EW): “My job is really strange right now: I’m doing feedback on a theme park attraction, I’m working on a TV series and at the same time I’m working on another game… I’m jumping from project to project“.
Obviously, everyone asked him if this was indeed the long-awaited third video game in the saga The Last of Us. He replied with a smile: “Regarding my next game at Naughty Dog, I can’t say anything… otherwise, the communications manager will massacre me!
This refusal to comment fuels speculation, as the studio has already announced the development of a multiplayer spin-off of The Last of Usbut would also be developing a new title.
While waiting to know if The Last of Us 3 is really in the pipeline, season 2 of the TV adaptation for HBO is well underway: “We have the entirety of Season 2 outlined and we are ready to start filming as soon as the strike ends!”
