Naughty Dog is perhaps one of the most well know developers of the modern era. thanks to hits such as The Last Of Us and the Uncharted series amongst others.
While the standalone DLC Uncharted : The Lost Legacy will be released on 22nd August 2017 followed by as of yet unannounced release date for The Last Of Us 2 , it makes you wonder what they future holds for Naughty Dog.
Well those questions might have been answered by Naughty Dog’s Game Director Shawn Escayg who in a recent interview with the DailyStar seemingly suggested that the next project after the Last Of Us Part II may be yet another Uncharted Game , presumably one which is a sequel to Uncharted: The Lost Legacy .
It could alternatively also be a completely new game as currently Naughty Dog is exploring new worlds and new genres for its next potential masterpiece. Here is what he had to say about the subject
“Yes, it’s pretty exciting..We don’t know what the future holds, but you’re right, it could be something new. It could be another Uncharted, who knows. Naughty Dog is not afraid of exploring more stuff.”
He further elaborated by saying that Naughty Dog is constantly playing around with new ideas.
“The entire studio is like that, everyone wants to try something new. There are so many new ideas, it’s the culture at Naughty Dog, we love ideas. The studio right now is just teeming with new content and new ideas building up new worlds, new genres. it’s a constant melting pot of new ideas.”
So it does appear that Naughty Dog has something in mind after they wrap up work on The Last Of Us Part II. It will be interesting to see if Naughty Dog does venture into a new gaming genre, which would not be that much of a stretch considering Guerrilla Games did something similar and were successful with the PS4 exclusive open world action RPG Horizon Zero Dawn.
