During its CES 2022 keynote overnight, Naughty Dog co-president Neil Druckmann featured to talk a little bit about its collaboration with Sony Pictures and PlayStation Productions on the Uncharted movie. As you’d expect, it was largely a puff piece, with the executive praising the filmmakers and also expressing enthusiasm for the upcoming The Last of Us television show, which he’s co-written.
However, it’s not all television and movies for the Californian developer, as Druckmann closed with a brief tease: “We’re dying to share with you the multiple game projects we have in the works at Naughty Dog.”
We know the team is working on a standalone, multiplayer adaptation of The Last of Us 2, while there are rumours it’s also remaking the original game in the series. Outside of that, it’s developing Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection for PS5, and it’s probably safe to assume it’s in the prototype phase of something new to boot.
Lots to look forward to, then!
Do it then please ND 😆
While I love uncharted and TLOU I think ND is my least favorite of the SIE first party studios.
I want to know what pixolpus is working on.
A TLoU remake would be like reliving my kid's childhood. I want to look after Ellie all over again and make all the same choices Joel did all over again.
@darkswabber Yes, it will be fascinating to see what the collaboration with Sony Pictures animation becomes.
The biggest recent release under their umbrella is into the spiderverse, but i can't see them doing something related to that whilst insomniac are working on Spidey.
I guess it will be something new thay can also be spun into a tv show / movie under the playstation productions banner?
Tbh I'm ready for a new ND IP.
@Integrity this is no offense meant, but I don’t understand why anyone wants a remake when it’s already an hd title on PS4. I would much rather them make something new. I don’t think games that are already in HD need remakes. Just up resing works fine.
They need to stop “remaking” games for newer gens that are just an up-res of PS3/PS4 games. What was once my favorite studio of Sony is quickly becoming my least favorite. A new IP that’s just a fun game and not trying to be an SJW adventure would be great.
@RatmCky no problem mate, no offense would be taken 😊 its not that i want it but of they're making it i love the game, and Joel and Ellie, that much that I'm interested in seeing how the remaster ends up.
Considering how incredible ND games are to look at I'm excited to see what a PS5 game can be like beyond a PS4 touch-up. If they can make Ellie even more wonderful I want to see it 😁 it's my all-time favourite game and not just because it's a good game but because it made me care about Joel and Ellie more than I've ever cared about anything in a game. To me they were practically real so I'll always be happy to see them in whatever guise ND produce.
It's all about the pricing. If the remaster gets priced sensibly then I'm happy that it's getting made. It's not like we have to buy it.
I'm currently replaying The Last of Us Part II at present and still blown away by it. Naughty Dog truly are the masters of their craft, ignore the boorish haters out there.
As for their future projects...all about the new SP games, would love a Part III but wouldn't be against something new. Whatever they do, I'm sure it will be worth the wait.
I just want to see what they’re doing with Factions. I’d be happy to play a remake of the first game or if they just removed the need for online to get the platinum.
@RatmCky spot on. The Remakes part though applies to all of playstation in general. I still don't see the reason why I should buy a ps5. its just a bunch of remakes.
@DotM That's simply not true though. They've released lots of new games with plenty more on the horizon.
@DotM we've just had 2 weeks of lists of amazing games to play on PS5. It doesn't mean you should want a PS5 but it does mean you're wrong about it being just about remakes. And 2022 is even better, and that's without PSVR2.
@Rob_230 don’t forget the Mitchell’s vs the machines that was great too.
@AdamNovice Yes this please
@darkswabber this is understandable, Uncharted is very precious to me and will always be but what other studios are doing right now from spiderman to returnal all of them are more appealing to me than the direction the last of us 2 had.
@Rob_230 I'm still thinking it is a Spiderverse game, Spider-Man games sell well and Sony probably wants to get a lot out in the wild. No different to Sonys film strategy, they have the MCU Spider-Man, the animated Spiderverse as well as the Sony Marvel Universe
I don't have faith they could continue to make a decent Uncharted game anymore. Best to either keep the series ended or hand the reigns to another studio. As for anything Last of Us oriented, I have no interest.
Ooh good stuff! If they released a complete package of TLOU 1&2 Remastered alongside the Factions multiplayer launch they'd be onto a real big win, me thinks.
@dudeAmarillo yeah, ND does make stuff I like but their recent cockyness + other SIE studios having just more varied and interesting output makes it the studio I’m the least curious about atm.
If the TLOU remake rumours are true that will only get worse. That game does not need a remake yet, there’s so many more sony IP’s from ps1, ps2, psp, ps3 and psvita that deserve a remake first.
@DotM yea I bought my ps5 and have played literally one original game on it!
@RatmCky I still suspect the remake is to make the characters more in line with the upcoming show. That's really the only reason i can see for a remake this soon.
There's a misspelled word. It should say Naughty Gods*.
Tlou 2 didn't even make it to my top 15 games of the ps4 gen, but I still think they're are still just as good.
Can’t get into TLOU2. Absolutely no interest in a remake of TLOU1 myself, it actually sounds really bizarre that they are bothering with it being as recent as it is but I guess it will sell to the many die hard fans. Very keen to hear what entirely new projects they have in the works though.
I think tlou remake is a waste of time. It's so recent and still mechanically advanced compared to other ps3 games.
@RatmCky Damn. That sjw game did some nasty things to girls on screen. So sjw.
I agree with a lot of people in the comments- a TLOU remake would seem like wasted potential. I enjoyed both games and the Uncharted series but I think ND should focus on a new IP.
Honestly at the point where I have little to no interest in anything ND comes out with, think they absolutely peaked at UC2 and haven't got anywhere near it since. Having said that, it's always an absolute graphical showcase at the very least.
They went an entire generation without a new ip so I hope all the projects are new ips, let TLOU and Uncharted rest in the Sony vault till at least the PS6.
@Juanalf I agree. After horizon, ghost, god of war and spiderman sequels, all of the blockbuster studios should make a new ip. Even Bluepoint and Housemarque.
They should just go full on and make a game where you play as extremely muscular Jeremy Corbyn and Bernie Sanders clones and rip out hearts and blow up heads. Call it Fist of the Lefty Star. I’d play that.
I just want a new IP from ND I love their games but we haven't had a new IP from them for an entire console gen it's time
@nessisonett 2 characters you say? Will they offer the player exposition between insultingly basic puzzles and cover based combat? Hmm…
I'm personally only interested if they're making a new IP. Preferably something lighter than The Last of Us.
@kyleforrester87 They’ll slow to a snail’s pace and talk about the wider state of the world as you bring a plank to a gap. Bernie’s knees aren’t as good as they once were and he probably wouldn’t be able to jump that 12cm gap.
After TLOU, I think I'll stay away from them
Multiple game project you say huh? Sounds promising. I hope for a new IP like a Fantasy game or a Sci Fi game or an Agent game. You know what, I would take any game by Naughty Dog.
@Uncharted2007 I really hope they end it at Uncharted 4 it was fantastic where it ended.
@RevGaming can you rephrase the comment to make sense please?
All I’m interested in from them would be the last of us 3 and the next uncharted game as long as it stars Nathan Drake otherwise nr interested in that. A new IP as good as either of those would be cool too. No multiplayer nonsense, live service garbage or cartoon kids games tho 😎
@RatmCky it's sarcasm.the game is nowhere near a sjw game. Have you seen a film that it's sjw. It talks about women being just as good or sometimes stronger than men etc. The game is not even about that. They chose to have two female main characters. That's it!!!
Maybe, just maybe, devs just want two female leads just because. Same thing with Horizon. There are plenty of created male characters that some studios want to do something different and a lot of people jump on it. Just like open world games or third person instead of first person like sony games.
You think sjw would love a game where they get beat up, tortured etc.?
Social media has not been for the better for some people.
I still view Naughty Dog as the most impressive studio today and can't wait to see what they have in store. It took a few playthroughs of TLOU2 to truly realize how amazing the experience was.
If it's Multiplayer then I'm not interested.
@RatmCky that's on you and your wallet, not Sony. Plenty fresh games around. Stop being ignorant for clout.
Loved TLOU, didn't get around to finishing TLOU2. I finished every UC bar legacy. It's time for a new IP. Let them make a star wars game or something.
Removed - trolling; user is banned
PS4? Let it die please lol
I will just leave this here
JAK AND DAXTER 5!!
@DarthNigerKiller Wow, that's some name. Cuckmann? Oh dear, your agenda is obvious..
The Last of Us Part II is a fantastic game, I genuinely feel sorry for anyone that didn't enjoy it.
Naughty Dog are head and shoulders above all other developers, Rockstar were once the best but they've become fat and lazy and no longer have the fire. As long as ND ignore the incels and alt-right crazies and continue to make what they want to make, they'll do alright by me and millions of other mature gamers.
Lol, an article telling us ND want to tell us about new material but they don't tell us about new material
By the way guys for the mega jackpot lotto coming up, I want to tell you the win before hand, I can't say to much but what I can say is that there will definitely be numbers, 6 of them. Some numbers will be the same numbers used in previously, some numbers will be similar to previous numbers and then will be a whole bunch of new numbers.
Winner could be multiple people or could be a single person
They were the undisputed top dogs during the PS3 gen. I’d say they rank third now behind Insomniac and Sucker Punch. Not looking forward to TLoU MP at all. Hopefully they have something big cooking and releasing soon. Come on ND pull your finger out.
Edit : Fifth actually. Forgot about Santa Monica and Guerilla.
I've never been less excited about what Naughty Dog is working on than now. Just keep beating that dead horse.
@Col_McCafferty 'Naughty Dog are head and shoulders above all other developers' , sure if you want to ignore the crunch & the toxic work environment
@Emperor_Rusty Todd Howard said the same thing about starfield recently about how they can't wait to show the game , you obviously can wait because that's what you're doing
@Col_McCafferty I think insomniac have overtaken them as Sony's best Studio and Guerilla not far behind. I think it's time naughty dog left the last of us and uncharted behind and came up with some new IP's, they have the talent and size to create some new amazing games (just not more marvel ones)
@Would_you_kindly Talking about the quality of their games, people don't like the conditions then they can leave. Crunch happens at lots of companies and some are guilty of far far worse.
@UltimateOtaku91 Nah, Insomniac haven't made a masterpiece yet. Even their very best don't match ND's 'average' output let alone their top efforts.
@Col_McCafferty the sad thing is Neil druckmann was actually rewarded after everything came out about the bad work conditions by being promoted
These comments though 🤣 Insert gif of Michael Jackson eating popcorn in the Thriller video... 👀🤣
@Integrity not at all convinced it would have the same emotional impact twice, thats why despite it being possibly my favourite game ever i never replayed it and why i've avoided tlou2
@Scoobijohn it won't have the same impact but knowing the story means I enjoy it even more.
There was a study that showed people got more enjoyment from watching something they'd already seen than watching it for the first time. Because you don't know whats going to happen you have a sense of trepidation, or expectation, that brings with it a different kind of enjoyment, less pleasurable, more intense.
I definetly think that is true. When I've watch a long-anticipated film or played a game, like TloU2, I'm on tenterhooks because part of me dreads what may be to come, part of me doesn't want it to end and I'm also concentrating harder than normal taking it all in.
I find that I get much more enjoyment from watching it all again free from all those burdens, just able to appreciate the story, which further enhances the experience. It's why I've watched some films and shows so many times I could almost recite the script. (I've watched Sherlock a stupid amount of times. And Airplane even more 😁) It's why I've played TLoU more times than any other SP game.
@AFCC I wonder if there is an equivalent pc community that begs Devs to get their games to please not work on older pcs 😂
PS4? Maybe its for me to say as i own a PS5 but i wish the PS4 will be dropped after this year.
@RatmCky i doubt they are working on the remake ( if its real) , they are prob out sourcing it. and there is plenty of things they can improve , i mean it was a ps3 game after all. it sounds like they have several projects in the works so they are working on something new , so don't worry.
@RevGaming guess we played 2 different games….especially since Neil even admitted himself he had an sjw checklist where he was putting things in just to piss off people against that BS. No need to reply…
@KayOL77 probably yeah lol but consoles is a bit different. I can't even imagine how good Horizon would look if it wasn't pulled back by the PS4 version. Still looks pretty good anyway
@daveofduncan that literally makes no sense. Besides ratchet, which is the game I’m referencing, and demon souls which I have no interest in, I would love to know the “plenty” of ps5 exclusives that I’m missing out on… in fact the only other one I could even name is returnal. So nice try.
@AFCC While it's true that a native ps5 will probably always be better than a crossgen I think it would be unwise to just ignore PS4 install base during covid and a chip shortage. These companies won't skimp on PS4 OR ps5 versions and each will top of class for their respective generation expectations.
@RatmCky Astros playroom says hello!
Stop evading. Are women getting beat up something sjw love to see? Is wanting a non sexy character a problem? Why?
Why are 3 games not plenty? How many triple A next gen exclusives have other launch with (including previous gens) in the first year? How many do you need to be "plenty"? If you need 10, then nobody ever did enough for you.
Bring back Jak and Daxter or give us a new IP. Not that I’m against Uncharted or TLOU but I want to see what else the company can do. I’d love to see another 3D platformer!
@DeathByLasagna i'd love a new jax and daxter game, but in reality , its not happening. i wouldn't mind seeing a remake like insomniac remade rachet , but a new game isn't going to happen.
edit: unless some one other then nd makes it.
HURRY UP! ND Saying that I don't even like online Multiplayer games What I am really looking forward to from them is their next big AAA PS5 only game Er HURRY UP! with that to please
TBH I haven't liked any ND games. But maybe that'll change with something new.
ND's last game was their best yet on every level. I cant wait for whatever they slide my way in the near future. Bring it on!
@RevGaming do you need a refill on your meds?
@RatmCky If they dont make games you like why would you even buy a Playstation 5. I have atleast 10 games i want to play on the PS5 but i cant get one. 😢
Just a new single-player IP built ground up for PS5. That's all I want.
@RatmCky Uneccessary insult, but sure. I need some.
@DeathByLasagna @UltimateOtaku91 New Jak & Daxter game or we riot!
@Flaming_Kaiser honestly I would love to know these 10 exclusives that are so good. I’m not bashing them whatsoever, just not a ton to play on it, so I’m genuinely curious what they are.
ND, bring back jak and daxter IP please
I had a thought that maybe they were going to release a vr port of last of us. Nd must be getting pressure from sony to make psvr2 content and the timing seems right.
@LIBERALSrCANCER Hahaha, yeah and you must be an Alpha! 🤣😂😁
The comment section under a Naughty Dog article, it's a beautiful thing.
@darkswabber So you love their games but hate them? Sure.
@JosephTheSheik I never said that.
Them being my least favorite SIE dev doesn’t equate me hating them. Also you can not be fond of the people behind a game and still like their games.
But I simply prefer other studios like BEND, insomniac, pixolpus, sucker punch and santa monica over ND. And that’s ok IMO 🤷♀️
Last of Us remake is unnecessary unless they are dong something like VR I guess. I would rather see a new IP or bring back something old like Jak and Daxter.
@RatmCky Who is talking about 10 exclusive games its like 5 exclusive games and games that will play a lot better on the PS5.
3)Horizon Forbidden West the release is so close. 😁
4)Rachet and Clank
5)Ghost of Thushima DC
6)Death Stranding DC
7)Nioh the Collection
11) Spider-Man Miles Morales
@Flaming_Kaiser Ok thank you for proving my point. Half of those games are on ps4. I think you’re not understanding the meaning of exclusive!
@RatmCky Are these games not mostly PS exclusive games? Besides Control and The Pathless and the PS4 games get massive upgrades with the PS5 versions in loading, looks, FPS on the PS5?
@Flaming_Kaiser o my god, let’s try again. No they are NOT ps5 exclusive, which is the entire point of this entire conversation. I don’t care about games that I have been able to play on my PS4 the last 8 years. Stop being so dense. You’re just trolling at this point.
@RatmCky To sell the same game again and again to idiots like skyrim and gta or fifa. Ubisoft and EA release the same game every year and the cattle buy it again and again every year. If i was ND i release again and again too.
@Onigumo yup you’re totally right. Stupid people buy these rereleases over and over again and think they are new experiences somehow lol. What’s funny are these people attacking on here defending it. Trust me, Sonys not defending you, they just want your money.
@RatmCky a TLoU remake could incorporate more story that has been fleshed out for the show. Of the two games it's the better story, but the gameplay is much, MUCH worse than the 2nd game. Improved gameplay and expanded story are the two best reasons for a remake. Upscaling does nothing to change the fundamental experience. RE2 was a great remake example, and Im super excited for the Dead Space remake.
As far as LoU, personally Id love to play Joel during early outbreak when he was a real PoS haha. I'd prefer a prequel to a remake, but Im def interested in a retelling of first game with better gameplay and new gameplay sequences.
@Integrity do you still think that?
@Col_McCafferty oh yeah? lol
@DotM think what? I don't know which comment you are referring to.
@KayOL77 I understand that 100% still saddens me though
