Naughty Dog, the developers of the classic “The Last of Us,” have recently posted a job listing. The job listing suggests that they might be working on a new post-apocalyptic game.

The video game company recently officially finished working on “The Last of Us Remake” for PlayStation 5. And it looks like they’re working on a new game right off the bat. The following job listing was recently posted on Naughty Dog’s official website for the position of a “Character Artist.”

Major Takeaways:

The new title they’re working on might not be the Naughty Dog’s new IP which was teased in The Last of Us 1. In TLOU1, we could see some images of a woman wearing fantasy-styled clothing and a creature resembling a unicorn.

Naughty Dog is known for teasing their new IPs like this. The Last of Us Part 1 was teased in Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, where you could find a newspaper about a deadly fungus.

However, at this point, it is just speculation. The new IP they’re working on might not be fantasy-themed but a post-apocalyptic one, judging from the job offer. 

The job posting from Naughty Dog focuses on sculpting different outfits, people, and animals in a realistic world setting, along with the ability to make any clothing asset feel lived in through texturing. It indicates that the new IP Naughty Dog is currently working on will be highly detailed in terms of character design.

The company feels highly determined to deliver imperfections and refine the minor details of a character to a point where they feel alive to the player. At this point, there’s not much else to go on. But we’re sure that whatever the company is working on, it is going to be a blast when it comes out.

The video game company has been fairly secretive about its upcoming project. But, fans had high expectations that Naughty Dog was working on a new IP. And, it turns out that the fans were right. The game they’re working on right now could definitely be a new IP.
