Naughty Dog “Brainstorming” The Last of Us 2, Other Games


A day after cleaning up at the 2014 DICE Awards for its work on The Last of Us, developer Naughty Dog has revealed that it is already thinking about a sequel to the Game of the Year as well as other, brand new IPs.

Speaking with Eurogamer, writer and creative director at Naughty Dog Neil Druckmann stated that while it’s time to “let the batteries recharge” after working on the game for four years, his team has been working on ideas for the future.

“We have started brainstorming some stuff. To be honest, some of them are sequel ideas, and some of them are brand new IP – we’ve spent the last few weeks brainstorming new IP,” he said. “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?”

Naughty Dog is currently working on a brand new game in the Uncharted series for the PlayStation 4, but it’s only a matter of time before news comes out of what the company’s next big project will be.
