Only yesterday we reported by Naughty Dog’s great multiplayer project, for which continues to be searched for employees. Whether here is a new IP or you actually leave the The Last of US franchise, is not quite clear. But what is clear: The two blockbuster brands Uncharted and Last of Us remain important for Naughty Dog.
Naughty Dog sees a future for uncharted and the last of us
In an interview with Game Informer, the two Naughty Dog Chefs Evan Wells and Neil Printant talked about the history of the studio and how it will continue in the future. And of course it came to the question of whether it goes to Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and The Last of Us: Part 2 now with new franchises.
Co-President Evan Wells meant:
I think the simple answer is: both. I think there is the enthusiasm for developing a new IP, but there is also a lot of love for Uncharted and The Last of Us and I believe you will in the future both types of See projects from us.
Especially in the case of Uncharted this is an interesting statement. Sure, here is not directly confirmed that a new offshoot arises – but if it goes on again treasure hunt, then apparently at Naughty Dog itself.
At the last of us, it was also meant that there was already a finished script for a third part and one must only see if and when the production starts here.
What we definitely know: Naughty Dog is currently working on a standalone multiplayer game. But a rather small team is responsible, which the project has already looked after the LAST OF US: Part 2 during work. Now the release of Ellies Rachefeldzug is already a year ago and in time certainly a lot has happened.
Whether there is now a completely new brand or something known – Naughty Dog seems to be able to stick to her two blockbuster brands. This could be ruled out that Uncharted and The Last of US complement the same fate like Crash Bandicoot or Jak & Daxter – super success but part of the past.
Hand on the heart: What do you want in the future of Naughty Dog?
