Naughty Dog: For Now, The Last Of Us 2 Is A "Big If"
Okay, so you really want a sequel to The Last Of Us.
We understand your desire. We really do. But we're just gonna have to be patient.
Until Uncharted 4: A Thief's End is out the door, developer Naughty Dog isn't interested in talking about the possibility of The Last Of Us 2. And in fact, to assume such a project even exists is a "big if." This according to what Naughty Dog bosses Bruce Straley and Neil Druckmann said in a recent Game Informer interview:
"That's all a big if. We're 110 percent in Uncharted 4 territory now. Blinders on, make this awesome."
However, there are some fans of TLoU who don't want to see a sequel, in much the same way Heavy Rain followers always want new IPs from Quantic Dream. In response to this, Druckmann said:
"We totally get it, because we have those same feelings as well. We have brainstormed sequel ideas for The Last of Us, and we've brainstormed ideas for new games, but all of that is put on ice right now while we work on Uncharted 4."
Druckmann added that it's a "big assumption" that Naughty Dog will ever produce a TLoU 2, so it sounds like the idea isn't even in the brainstorming phase just yet. Do you want a sequel or would you be okay with TLoU being a one-and-done game?
