"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.
