Naughty Dog is being rather chatty regarding both its current major franchises, Uncharted and The Last Of Us. First off the studio has confirmed that there will be no more single player DLC for The Last Of Us, though there are still multiplayer updates planned for the next year. The PS4 Remastered edition will have all the current DLC included, and any future content will be cross-buy.
Continuing The Last Of Us theme Naughty Dog’s Arne Meyer spoke to Videogamer about a possible sequel.
“It really comes down to is there something interesting in this universe we’ve created that we want to continue to explore? Is it something that we can get the entire team passionate about? Is it something we can get the creative directors excited about and then we could continue it?
We’re just starting to explore ideas of what more could there be in this universe and starting that decision process. That doesn’t mean the end result is guaranteed.”
This doesn’t confirm that a sequel is happening, just that Naughty Dog is considering whether it would be worth expanding The Last of Us universe. Finally, Meyer also spoke to Digital Spy about how Uncharted 4 has benefited from the development of The Last Of Us Remastered, and that a collection of Nathan Drake’s adventures for PS4 could happen.
“It would be a good time for us to leverage all the attention behind it and make it look better. It would be really cool to have. Shuhei really likes the Uncharted series quite a bit, and I think it would be a great way to introduce – I wouldn’t say a new generation – but to expand the people that are bound to know Uncharted.
I don’t know if we’re able to do that, but it’s a really clever idea. It would be nice to see if we can figure that out and pull that off.”
Again this isn’t confirmation that an Uncharted collection for PS4 is in the works, but Naughty Dog isn’t totally against the idea.
