The Last of Us

There’s a chance that critical smash The Last of Us will get a sequel, directors Neil Druckmann and Bruce Straley have revealed. Speaking candidly as part of a Reddit question and answer session, the talented twosome hinted that there’s a 50 per cent possibility that we'll be returning to a post-apocalyptic United States in the future.

“If you’re asking about a sequel, right now I’d say that it’s 50/50,” wrote a revealing Druckmann, who served as the creative lead on the core release and also its recent solo add-on pack. “Sony has complete trust in us. It’s really up to us to come up with something that will keep the team inspired for the next several years, which is why we don’t take the decision of what we’ll work on next lightly.”

The duo also took the time to reiterate that developer Naughty Dog currently consists of two separate teams, meaning that the people behind Joel and Ellie’s cross-country excursion haven’t necessarily turned their attention to Uncharted PS4 since concluding work on the horror game. As such, it’ll probably be a few years before we learn what the crew’s up to next. Alas, whatever it picks, we suspect that it’ll be good.
