The Last of Us 2′: Troy Baker Believes Naughty Dog Will Make Right Decision

At the same time, Baker feels like Naughty Dog is at a place where, if The Last of Us 2 is not coming together the way they wanted, the developer would either scrap the project and start over or abandon it altogether. Either way, Baker doesn’t actually know anything at this point, but he trusts Naughty Dog implicitly. (PS3, PS4, The Last Of Us 2, Troy Baker)

I agree. I trust ND to do great on their next project aside from Uncharted: A Thief's End. I think they should make a new IP and blow us away with a new masterpiece.

Many people would think, ''Oh, they will milk this game'' or ''sony is forcing them for the money(even thought ND doesn't take direct orders from Sony According to Bruce and Neil), but only ND knows what is the right thing to do.

If they ever decide to make a sequel, it's because they have more ideas and another amazing story to tell. If they decided not to make it, then fine. I'm okay with either. I would prefer a new IP though.

Sony pays their bills. They can say "o we have this control and this freedom etc."

If Sony wanys a sequel from them, ND will have to make it.

@omega: when you have a studio like Naughty Dog you only force them to make stuff if you are stupid, if you want a fair bit of that amazing talent to up and move elsewhere. You only try to force them if you want a situation like say Bungie buying themselves out so they could persue things that weren't halo..... Sony aren't known for doing that and I don't think will. The very fact many games they release don't alone pull a profit but the few that do subsidises the rest should show that they value creativity when okaying a project. Clearly they are still a business and ave to shut down projects that just aren't working like the recent Sony Santa Monica team but I don't think they are into forcing their developers to make sequels- providing an incentive todo so sometimes maybe but actually forcing them-that's suicide in a creative based industry like games and films and mucic and I'm sure we can all think of examples why.

Maybe the Last of Us will return, with Kiefer Sutherland as Joel...

whatever they do decide we know its their choice and sony won't be forcing them to do a sequel. Look at MM not wanting to do LBP3, sony found another studio and now MM are doing something new(which we most likely will see at gamescom)

I for one and i know i am in the minority want to see not only a sequel to TLOU but i also want to play with the same Characters. The story was left so wide open with the ending that ND could go in any new direction. Its not like by the end the world had returned to it normal ways and everyone was happily ever after

anyway we won't be seeing it anytime soon, i think the earliest is VGX on spike TV 2015. By than UC4 will be out and the 2nd team would have had enough time to show a tease trailer. Also the trailer could just have ND logo with games name and people would be over excited. That's how much respect/credibility ND have built

@ The_Infected

Why can't they do both, the sudio was broken into two parts when they decided to make the last of us, with one team making TLOU and one team making the New Uncharted, so why can't they just do that again.

One team still making Uncharted, second team working on TLOU 2 and a new team working on a new IP...

With Games starting to go into 3 year development cycles, this is not the time to only be making 2 IP's the Gaming Demand is at an all time high, and getting bigger every day...

Naughty Dog is one of the greatest developers in the industry and they made the first game the masterpiece it is. I agree with Mr. Baker. :)

Naughty Dogs are gods of the gaming world, making the impossible possible, shatting on all developers with their status, creating new standards for developers everywhere, and finally their creativity and gameplay is on an top-tier level maybe even a godly level.



Off Topic: At least our mothers aren't at N4G because that would the scariest thing on this site.

Well Said my fellow Ninja.

Naughty Doge has a arrived to a point where they are just competing against themselves. I'm always Very happy to have them on my side.

Naughty Dog are not afraid of ending a series when it needs to. They never drag a story out beyond its true ending. Whatever they decide to do, it'll be the right decision.

the amount of pressure for ND to put out masterpiece after masterpiece has to take a toll on the company.

its kind of like Scorsese putting out a movie that doesn't get nominated for an oscar.

Crash Bandicoot 1-3 / CTR (4 Games)
Jak and Daxter 1-3 / X (4 Games)
Uncharted 1-4 (4 Games)
So why not -> The Last of Us 1-4!?

Tlou is too fresh for a sequel imo. Make a new ip now and maybe then a sequel to tlou.
WitWolfy  +   439d ago
I'd love to see Ellie as a mature adult and what they've been doing ever since the ending... I'd say do it.

Naughty Dog are the reason I play games now. I spent over 2 weeks of total gameplay on the Uncharted 2 online and over 30 hours on the campaign. They really make the greatest games.
