Naughty Dog thinking over sequels and some new IP ideas
Naughty Dog's Neil Druckmann has been talking over what they plan to do next now that the story DLC for The Last Of Us is finished and the next Uncharted is well under way.
Druckmann admitted that, now that Left Behind is finished and headed for release next week, it was time for a break to recharge the batteries before they dive headlong into a new project. He revealed that they are brainstorming on what to do next with the team that is not working on Uncharted.
"We just wrapped up Left Behind,” Druckmann explained, “and Bruce Straley, the game director, and I have been doing this for over four years now. So it's just time for a break, and to recharge the batteries."
"We have started brainstorming some stuff,” he continued. “To be honest, some of them are sequel ideas, and some of them are brand new IP - we've spent the last few weeks brainstorming new IP. So we have to get some good steps and see... It's kind of like how we approached Left Behind. Can we tell people a story that's really worth telling, and that's not repeating itself? And if we can't, where can we get inspired - what is something that's really going to challenge us, and push storytelling in this medium forward?"
Left Behind arrives on the PlayStation Store on February the 14th.
