A sequel to Naughty Dog’s critically acclaimed The Last of Us is in production, according to voice actor Nolan North.

North, who is known for providing the voice of Uncharted's Nathan Drake, was asked if he was working with Naughty Dog on any more projects after Uncharted 4: A Thief's End at MetroCon.

"For now, [Uncharted 4] is the last one," he replied. I know they're doing The Last of Us 2, but my character in The Last of Us... untimely demise."

North is referring to David, a leader of a group of survivors in the the first The Last of Us.

Troy Baker, who voiced protagonist Joel in The Last of Us, however, has said he "knows nothing" about a sequel. Speaking at Indy PopCon, Baker discussed where he thought a potential sequel could take the story.

"I don't know if we're going to do another one or not," he said. "If we do, I trust Neil [Druckmann, creative director] and Bruce [Straley, game director], and everyone at Naughty Dog to tell a story that needs to be told."

Druckmann and Straley are currently heading up the development of Uncharted 4.

The Last of Us was released for PlayStation 3 in June 2013. In December of 2014, a sequel was mentioned on the resume of former Naughty Dog lead character artist Michael Knowland.

According to Knowland, Naughty Dog produced prototype designs for use in The Last of Us 2 in 2014.

Following the release of The Last of Us, Neil Druckmann said there was a "50/50" chance of a sequel.

North also recently discussed EA and Visceral Games' Star Wars project, which former Uncharted writer Amy Hennig is working on.

"If you're a big fan of Amy Hennig and her style of story, she's gone to EA and is going to reboot a brand new Star Wars franchise in the style of Uncharted," he said.

He also said it was "along the same lines" as Star Wars 1313, LucasArts' cancelled third-person action game.
