Naughty Dog Aims To Redefine Modern Gaming Perception With New IP

Expert Verified By

Next Game Is Most Thrilling One Yet!

Story Highlight
  • Naughty Dog’s next project is a completely new IP.
  • The team states its next work could redefine gaming as we know it.
  • It did not elaborate on this statement, but the studio may be aiming to provide another cinematic masterpiece.

Naughty Dog’s latest release, The Last of Us Part 2 Remastered, was just a re-release with a visual revamp, but it highlighted the enthusiasm associated with the franchise.

The team is also working on a new IP as its next project, and the developer intends to create The Last of Us Part 3 eventually. What’s interesting here is that the team wants to surpass its previous work since it is looking to redefine modern gaming.

Why it matters: It can be argued that Uncharted and The Last of Us were already quite revolutionary since they inspired a wave of similar action-adventure titles.

In a recent interview, the creative director of The Last of Us Part 2 and Uncharted 4 was asked about his dream project. Neil Druckmann clarified that his latest game is just that and described it as the most thrilling game.

He then teased an exciting possibility of what is coming next from Naughty Dog.

I’m eager to see how this game resonates, as it could redefine mainstream perceptions of gaming.

Meanwhile, he also mentioned the success of The Last of Us on television, which captured millions’ attention. Neil Druckmann asserted that the popularity of this IP has motivated him to work on the new project.

While the director did not say much else, Naughty Dog’s history has shown the team’s knack for blurring the lines between film and games. Therefore, we would not be shocked if Neil Druckmann aims to break new ground in the cinematic nature of games.

Recent releases like Hellblade 2 have gone for a similar spectacle, though this release ended up falling a bit short in terms of gameplay.

The Last of Us Part 3 Is Not Coming Soon
The Last of Us Part 2 Is Expected To Arrive on PC Soon

Elsewhere, Neil Druckmann is likely to create another entry in The Last of Us franchise at some point.

Naughty Dog is certainly ambitious, but it should be noted the team’s next game might arrive much later than anticipated. Following the setback of The Last of Us Multiplayer, this studio has yet to share anything brand new.

However, with the PlayStation Showcase expected this month, perhaps a teaser for the new IP is ready to be revealed.
