Naughty Dog’s Neil Druckmann Promises Not To Remain “The Last Of Us Studio Forever”

He clarifies that multiple single-player projects are in the works.

Story Highlights

  • In an interview, Neil Druckmann promised not to remain “The Last of Us studio forever.”
  • He also reaffirmed that many projects, including multiple single-player ones, are in development.
  • Neil did not reveal more details, but an early report confirmed that a new IP is also being developed.

It is no surprise that Naughty Dog has become synonymous with The Last of Us series and for good reasons. However, the franchise co-creator, Neil Druckmann, does not appear to be too pleased with the constant association. During an interview with the LA Times, Neil was one to subtly point out the studio’s link with the IP, assuring gamers with a promise that Naughty Dog will not always be “The Last of Us studio forever.

I promise you, we will not be ‘The Last of Us’ studio forever,” said Neil Druckmann during the interview.

That’s not all; Neil Druckmann also reaffirms that Naughty Dog is hard at work in developing numerous games, among which are multiple single-player projects. Not many details are known about these unannounced titles, and Neil ensured to keep the juicy bits under wraps for now. Perhaps we will learn more in the future.

Naughty Dog Has Yet To Announce Its New Projects

While we lack official details from the studio, it is clear to assume that at least one of these projects is from a new IP that we have never seen before. A slew of previous pieces of evidence have also implied the same. However, the possibility pretty much became clear when a LinkedIn mention of a studio dev working on a new IP was discovered a few weeks ago. Likewise, an easter egg found in The Last of Us Part 1 earlier also teased the same.

While the prospect of a new IP by Naughty Dog seems quite alluring, it is still best to take these details with a pinch of salt until official confirmation.
