The Last of Us is a gem of a game. Even though there are some out there who didn’t enjoy it as much, majority of the gamers loved it and the game has gotten 10/10 across numerous game critics.
So it is only expected that a sequel to this game will be expected; especially considering the DLC for the game also was critically acclaimed. However we may have to be patient for a sequel, if it is ever to happen.
Seems till Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End is completed and shipped, Naughty Dog is not even considering the possibility of The Last of Us 2. This is what Naughty Dog bosses Neil Druckmann and Bruce Straley said about TLoU 2 in a recent interview with Game Informer:
"That's all a big if. We're 110 percent in Uncharted 4 territory now. Blinders on, make this awesome."
Of course many of might not even want a sequel to TLoU. Just like how fans of Quantic Dream love that company because of how they just move on to new IPs. In response to this Druckmann said:
"We totally get it, because we have those same feelings as well. We have brainstormed sequel ideas for The Last of Us, and we've brainstormed ideas for new games, but all of that is put on ice right now while we work on Uncharted 4."
For now Druckmann wanted to drive home the idea that right now they are not even in the brainstorming phase of TLoU2. As such that game might never be made. But in a way I am glad they are so focused on Uncharted 4. Everyone is expecting great things from this franchise’s initial steps on the current generation consoles.
