Now Playing: The Last of Us Part II Remastered Announcement Trailer

Druckmann went on to say that Naughty Dog has "other projects in the works."

Before this, Druckmann said Naughty Dog had chosen its next game, but he declined to say if it would be The Last of Us: Part III, the rumored new sci-fi game, or something else.

"I know the fans really want The Last Of Us Part III, I hear about it all the time," Druckmann said. "All I can say is that we're already into our next project, the decision has already been made. I can't say what it is, but that is the process we went through."

As for the Last of Us multiplayer game, it was recently reported that Naughty Dog put the game "on ice" after Destiny developer Bungie reviewed it. Naughty Dog's next release is The Last of Us Part II Remastered, which comes to PS5 in January 2024.

Beyond games, The Last Of Us Season 2 for HBO could begin filming as soon as January 2024.
