The Last of Us was nothing short of a sensation when it launched on the PlayStation 3 last year. I was lucky enough to get to review the game myself and absolutely loved it, so even the slightest news of a sequel makes me very happy.
Naughty Dog, the developer behind the game has now confirmed that they’re currently ‘brainstorming ideas’ for the game’s follow-on, but it’s obviously very early days, so I wouldn’t expect to hear quiet some time. Especially since the game’s writer and creative director Neil Druckmann revealed that it follow-on title would be many years away, especially since nothing concrete has been decided about what the game might be like.
“We just wrapped up [upcoming The Last of Us DLC] Left Behind, and Bruce Straley, the game director, and I have been doing this for over four years now. So it’s just time for a break, and to recharge the batteries,” Druckmann said in a recent interview.
“So we have to get some good steps and see… It’s kind of like how we approached Left Behind. 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?”
Left Behind is just a few days away now, set to release as the single player expansion to The Last of Us on February 14th. It’s great to hear that they’re at least looking at the future of The Last of Us, but for now we’ll just have to wait out for Naughty Dogs next title, Uncharted 4.
