Uncharted: The Lost Legacy has closed the Naughty Dog adventure saga to date, pending possible new installments. Meanwhile, the studio released in 2020 the long-awaited The Last of Us: Part 2. The creators of Crash Bandicoot and Jak & Daxter are also working on a multiplayer project based on this video game, of which they have not shared too many details at the moment. In an interview with GameInformer, the co-president of the developer, Evan Wells, has acknowledged that in Naughty Dog they still hold their two contemporary sagas in high esteem more important.
“Do you still want to work on the IP that you have established or do you have the desire to create new intellectual properties at this time?”, The journalist asks. Wells responds that he would like to go both ways, which suggests the possibility that we will see new titles in these sagas in the future. “I think the simple answer is both,” he commented: “I think there is some excitement in developing new IPs, but there is still a lot of love for Uncharted and The Last of Us, so it seems to me that you are going to see both types of projects in the future”.

Naughty Dog seeks staff for multiplayer project
Although Naughty Dog had planned for The Last of Us Part 2 to have serial multiplayer, the studio decided to launch it as a future independent project. This new vision of the post-apocalyptic world in which Ellie and Joel coexist continues to grow, so the developer has published a series of job offers with many open vacancies, from design positions to programming, through some more technical aspects and related to their visual aspect.
The Last of Us Part 2 went on sale last year 2020 exclusively for PlayStation 4. Recently, they released a patch for the title run at 60 FPS on PlayStation 5. Neither Uncharted 4 nor The Lost Legacy have received a next-gen update, at least for now.
