Sony recently presented its “Creative Entertainment Vision,” a strategy meeting that discussed the company’s long-term plan for future technological advances in the next 10 years. An interview featuring Neil Druckmann, the creator of The Last of Us series, was also published, where he talked about Naughty Dog’s next project. While keeping the title under wraps, Neil claims it is “perhaps the most thrilling yet.

I’ve been lucky to work on several dream projects and am currently excited about a new one, which is perhaps the most thrilling yet,” said Neil Druckmann.

The president of Naughty Dog also talks about bridging the gap between gamers and non-gamers and using that visibility not only for the mystery project but for the whole benefit of gaming. And he goes as far as to claim that this title “could redefine mainstream perceptions of gaming.

I’m eager to see how this new game resonates, especially following the success of The Last of Us, as it could redefine mainstream perceptions of gaming.”
