Naughty Dog: "We will only make a sequel if we have passion for the series."
Lets hope that lots of money and praise will = Passion.
I'm actually skeptical about this. I would love a sequel, but I don't think it really needs one. What I would really appreciate, instead, is another story DLC featuring Ish and his partner. I want them to make another new IP
Same here, Naruto let's get us and our friends to sign it.
Why do you want a new IP? TLOU is a new IP and it's perfect material for further sequels. Just the inclusion of infected animals has lots of potential for interesting gameplay. Most of all I want an open world game in this universe.
I would kind of like it to be a one hit wonder than an established series. The Last of Us was a phenomenal game and it suited being a one off game. I don't want to see what happened to inFamous. In my eyes inFamous ended on a perfect note with infamous 2. But then Sucker Punch had to make things convenient and it ruined the powerful ending inFamous 2 had. I know it is a big ask because a lot of money is involved but I would like series to end when it feels right to
I was with you until u mentioned infamous I enjoyed the heck out of second son
I feel like last of us could be continued but not with the same charecters.. It feels like it should be a one hit Wonder
yeah but i still want to play as Joel/Ellie again :(
That means Uncharted 4 can be left on a cliffhanger and that would be sad. Especially if it does and no sequel is released. I rather Naughty Dog be done after Uncharted 4 and make a trilogy just for PS4
The Last of Us doesn't need a sequel. The ambiguity of the ending is perfect for what the narrative is trying to accomplish.. Naughty Dog can, however.. make a sic-fi IP with Savage Starlight, A comic book found within the game. If Naughty Dog were to make a sequel to the game.. it would need to live up to the BAR that was TLOU. and that's pretty high IMO. It won more GOTY awards than Skyrim.. deeming it the most awarded game in history..
I want it!!!!
we all want Savage Starlight it's incredibly amazing how ND made us care about a comic book in a video game and a character that we didn't even see (Ish) those guys are unmatched in my book
I could view TLoU as series similar to how a book series is done. Every installment has a different name, but takes place in the same universe. Naughty Dog could use the same characters, but I would prefer if they chose to go with new characters every time, you know actually build the universe. Maybe the new characters just happen to cross paths with Joell & Ellie. It would create a very interesting narrative in my humble opinion.
The comment strikes me as strange.. They are a first party.. They make one if Sony tells them too.. Same would go for all first parties
Do you really think the inner workings of Worldwide Studios is as simple as Sony telling people what to make? That is not their culture. Do you really think Sony pressured Media Molecule to make a new LBP, or did they hand that over to a talented second-party Sumo Digital, whilst MM work on Tearaway and a new IP for PS4? Exactly. It's already been established that the culture at Naughty Dog is one of complete opposition to the norms in game development - flat hierarchy and employee structure. They've had the option to revisit Jak, but decided against it - their choice. The studio has never made anything they don't want to. They had the option to make a safer sequel, and during this time, they decided to push Sony for a two team split to work on an unproven and risky new IP, half way through the console cycle. They have more clout than you'd believe.
Oh I believe they have clout.. No doubt there.. But its like saying 343i decided they rather not do halo.. Its not up to them.. They are a division of a parent company. If any of the big 3 want a game made by one of their first parties, I believe its being made regardless of the developers personal desires
Prequel with Joel, Tommy, Tess and their story in the 20yrs we missed . Edit: I think a sequel would ruin the story between Joel and Ellie But the prequel would show how Tommy and Joel fell out, how that all heppened, and the relationship between Joel and Tess. (With the opportunity to indroduce more characters)
