If The Last of Us Part II took a long time to complete, the work was fortunately not in vain with an impressive commercial success and especially critical since it is the most awarded game in history, just that. A nice line in addition on the CV of Naughty Dog, he can already boast of having laid the Uncharted or, even before, the Jak and Crash Bandicoot.
In short, when the Californian studio is preparing something, it is quite natural that the ears prick up and the eyes open wide. One of his thinking heads Neil druckmann took advantage of CES Las Vegas 2024 to drop in and make a very interesting public statement: Naughty Dog is officially working on “multiple game projects”.
Obviously, it did not take more to titillate an entire community and revive speculation. First of all, if we were to take stock, it seems essential to specify that one of the known and confirmed projects of Naughty Dog is a multiplayer game, very ambitious and which would most likely be The Last of Us 2’s amputee multiplayer mode. This would take another form and, as we told you yesterday after details retrieved from a job offer, he could adopt a very fashionable business model.
The other rumor of the moment still concerns The Last of Us, with a PS5 remake of the very first game from Naughty Dog. A hallway noise that seems hard to believe when we know that this episode dates from 2013 “only”, and yet: the whole seems particularly well founded with many details and convincing clues, which you can find at this address.
That would effectively make at least two games on fire, which would coincide rather well with the statement of Neil Druckmann: nevertheless, impossible to be certain and it’s entirely possible that Naughty Dog is working on something else. As a potential lead, we can take as an example Guerrilla Games who are working on a new Horizon game for the PlayStation VR 2: could Joel and Ellie’s dads also have been commissioned? for their own VR title?
