No Concrete Plans for The Last of Us Sequel, But Sony Is Interested
Naughty Dog is "talking about some ideas for a potential sequel, some experiments that they want to do."
If Naughty Dog does make a sequel to The Last of Us, it probably won't be here anytime soon. That's according to PlayStation boss Shuhei Yoshida, who confirms in a new interview that Naughty Dog is brainstorming ideas for a sequel, but the project is not yet confirmed and could be a long time away.
"We haven't confirmed The Last of Us 2," Yoshida told Eurogamer. "But ever since the launch of the first game, people like [The Last of Us creative director Neil Druckmann] are talking about some ideas for a potential sequel, some experiments that they want to do. It's just talks around development."

Yoshida went on to say that Sony has "no confirmed information" about The Last of Us 2. However, the executive said he's eager to see the ideas that Naughty Dog comes up with for it.
"Like many people, we wish to see what it's going to be like, how the story's going to develop, what life these characters have after what happened in The Last of Us," Yoshida said.
Last week, Naughty Dog confirmed that it had prototyped ideas for a Last of Us sequel, but stressed that the game is not currently in active development. This followed comments from voice actor Nolan North, who said in June, "I know they're doing The Last of Us 2."
Back in February 2014, Naughty Dog said there was a 50/50 shot that it would make The Last of Us 2.
