Fans of Naughty Dog’s survival horror game, “The Last of Us,” are already looking forward to another adventure story of protagonists Ellie and Joel. However, the developer hasn’t confirmed anything yet and it remains to be seen if the studio will work on “The Last of Us 2” very soon. For years, there have been speculations that development of the game has already started but recent reports suggest otherwise.
Now, reports of “Uncharted 5” possibly happening have surfaced and there are rumors suggesting that Naughty Dog will shift its priorities and hold off once again on “The Last of Us 2.” Then again this could be unlikely since Druckmann already made it clear that Nathan Drake’s story ended in “A Thief’s End” but if he does return, Naughty Dog won’t be on board. “If [new developers] made a great game I’d be excited, […] I’d want to play an Uncharted I didn’t work on. It’d be a lot of fun,” he told GamesRadar.
With Druckmann’s statement, it is now assumed that Naughty Dog will focus on pushing through with “The Last of Us 2.” It is believed that the game should be ready by 2018, giving a five-year gap between the previous installment and the rumored one. Stay tuned to GamenGudie for more updates.
