The Last Of Us Director Confirms He’s Writing And Directing A New Game

Neil Druckmann, the co-studio head of Naughty Dog, has confirmed his involvement in writing and directing an undisclosed game, as revealed on his Instagram. His bio now ends “writer/director unannounced game.”

Amidst speculation about the upcoming game, which could potentially be The Last of Us: Part 3–but with plenty of evidence to the contrary, also–there are also whispers of a new intellectual property taking shape at the California studio. Over the past three-plus years since The Last of Us: Part II’s release, Naughty Dog has been busy remaking the original game and venturing into television. However, the previously underway standalone multiplayer spin-off has been reset during these undertakings.

In an interview earlier this year, Druckmann said Naughty Dog has as of March already chosen what its next game will be–but won’t reveal what it actually is. “I know the fans really want The Last Of Us Part III, I hear about it all the time,” he told Kinda Funny. “All I can say is that we’re already into our next project, the decision has already been made. I can’t say what it is.”

Late last year, eagle-eyed fans playing through the The Last of Us Part 1 remake believe they found some art in the game that is teasing the studio’s next game. Players noticed a collection of imaginative images portraying fantastical scenes not present in the original release: a warrior confronting a fire-breathing dragon, a serpent-like creature entwined around a triangular moon, and a depiction of a horned pegasus.

If it is The Last of Us Part III, Druckmann has been on record since 2021 in saying a plot outline exists–if the studio wants to go in that direction.

Given the development cycles typical of the PS5 era, it’ll likely be a while before anything of this upcoming game sees the light of day. It’s possible that the next project will not be the long-brewing The Last of Us multiplayer game, which has reportedly been slowed and scaled down.
