The Last of Us 2 is a 50-50 chance
Another Jak and Daxter game is also possible.
Yesterday, The Last of Us Creative Director Neil Druckmann and Game Director Bruce Straley held a Reddit Ask Me Anything where they said developer Naughty Dog has yet to reach a decision, but there’s a possibility we’ll see a sequel to The Last of Us.
“Right now I'd say it's 50/50,” Druckmann said.
Earlier this month, we reported that The Last of Us team is currently in the brainstorming stage for its next project. Druckmann said that some ideas are for brand new games while others are for a sequel.
“It's kind of like how we approached Left Behind,” he said. “Can we tell people a story that's really worth telling, and that's not repeating itself? And if we can't, where can we get inspired--what is something that's really going to challenge us, and push storytelling in this medium forward?"
Straley explained that Naughty Dog decided to make The Last of Us after it found it difficult to tell the stories it was interested in with the Jak and Daxter universe. “It was hard to deal with all the baggage of all of those characters and the lore and try to apply everything that we were learning about how to mesh stories and gameplay and we just couldn't make it all fit,” he said.
“When we finally got to a story we actually liked, we weren't actually making a Jak and Daxter game anymore. And that wouldn't be honoring what the fans would want...We tried lifting the constraints and said, ‘what if we could make anything? what's exciting to us?’ and that became TLOU. BUT the door is never fully shut though... there's always a possibility…”
The Last of Us’ singleplayer DLC Left Behind was released on Feb. 14. Our review found that it was hugely successful.
