Naughty Dog ‘passed’ from Uncharted, The Last of Us Part III lives up to the studio

Naughty Dog is known for many franchises, most recently Unexplored and The last of us. Co-Chair Neil Druckmann recently spoke on both, noting that he had moved on from the former, while leaving the door open to the latter.

In an interview with BuzzFeed, Druckmann said multiplayer The last of us The game is another entry in a sense as it has a new story and cast of characters and even called it “another chapter in the universe”. But as for a more suitable The Last of Us Part IIIDruckmann explained that the team had a lot of sway over Sony and there wasn’t “all that pressure” to follow up.

“All I could say is that at Naughty Dog, we’re very, very privileged to have Sony as our publisher – which means Sony funds our games, supports us, and we belong to Sony,” he said. he declares. “They’ve supported us every step of the way to follow our passions – which means that just because something succeeds, people think there’s all this pressure and we need to do a sequel. This is not the case.”

He then used Unexplored for example since Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End is one of the studio’s best-selling games. That kind of hit might need a sequel elsewhere (lost legacy was a standalone game, but started out as DLC, which makes it a bit different), but it’s not. This is what prompted Druckmann to say that Naughty Dog was leaving this swashbuckling series.

“For us, Unexplored was wildly successful — Uncharted 4 was one of our best-selling games – and [we were] to be able to put our final brush on this story and say we’re done,” Druckmann said. “We are moving on. »

Druckmann used The Last of Us Part II to prove his point. He explained that it was up to the team to decide if the sequel was going to happen or not. This somewhat corroborates a Reddit comment he made in 2014 when Left over‘s launch where he said there was a 50/50 plan that there would be more adventures in this world. Eventually, the developer came up with a story he wanted to tell, so he decided to go ahead.

“Similarly, with The last of us, it’s up to us whether we want to continue or not,” he said. “Our process is the same thing we did when we did second part, which is to say, if we can come up with a compelling story that contains this universal message and statement about love – just like the first and second game did – then we will tell that story. If we can’t find something, we have a very strong end with second part and that will be the end.

Stories about The Last of Us Part III popped up in a few different places. Druckmann recently said there are “more stories to tell” in the world of The last of us. He also confirmed in April 2021 that he had a look at a possible sequel, but made sure to say it was a “story that [Naughty Dog] does not “even if he”[hoped] one day [it] can see the light of day.

UnexploredThe future of, whether with Naughty Dog or not, is also murky. The game’s lead designer Robert Cogburn hinted at Kotaku in 2015 before Uncharted 4that this was probably the team’s last entry since they were “tired of answering these same kinds of questions in the same fiction”.

However, the new evidence is not as definitive and in some cases could even indicate that other teams are taking the reins. A Naughty Dog scout says the team is looking for talent who can build teams for “not just new titles, but the legacy of Unexplored.” And while vague, another job listing from one of Sony’s interns said she was working with Naughty Dog on a “beloved franchise.” lost legacy Creative director Shaun Escayg also told GamesRadar that the studio loves the series and wants to see more, noting that we should “never say never”. Loose rumors have pointed to a reboot, but these claims have not been substantiated and nothing has been confirmed.
