In a new interview, Neil Druckmann says Naughty Dog will never be The Last of Us studio.

in InterviewDruckmann said the studio is working on “multiple single-player projects,” and “I promise you, we will never be ‘The Last of Us’ studio.”

“We create experiences full of story and character, especially in relationships,” Druckmann said. “Stories have a sort of philosophical core that everything revolves around and that’s going to feed them.”

After the success of The Last of Us HBO TV series, many fans thought that the game part 3 would be coming soon. However, in an interview in early 2023, Druckmann suggested that may not be the case. Using the Uncharted series as an example, Druckmann said, “Because something’s successful, people think there’s all this pressure and we have to make a sequel. Not so. For us, Uncharted has been a huge success — Uncharted 4 is one of our best-selling games — and we’re able to put our last brushstroke on that story and say we’re done. We are moving forward.

On Part 3, he continued, “Our process is the same when we do Part 2, which is to come up with a great story that has this universal message and statement about love, just like the first and second games. Did — then we’ll tell the story. If we can’t think of anything, we have a very strong ending with Part 2 and that will be the end.

Rumors from late 2022 are already in development, and with the success of the TV series and multiple single-player titles in Naughty Dog, it’s hard to imagine a Part 3. Not in development.
