Nolan North: 'I Know They're Doing The Last of Us 2'

Voice actor Nolan North may have let slip that a sequel to The Last of Us is in development, though Naughty Dog have not announced anything.

"I know they're doing The Last of Us 2," North said during a Q&A session at MetroCon, when asked if he was doing any projects with Naughty Dog aside from Uncharted 4: A Thief's End. He didn't offer any other details on the game, aside from the fact that he's not involved.

A sequel to The Last of Us was also raised during another Q&A last weekend, this time with voice actor Troy Baker (Joel in The Last of Us) at Indy Popcon. Baker said that he doesn't know anything about a new, but that if there is one, he'd trust the Naughty Dog team "to tell a story that needs to be told."

In February last year, The Last of Us creative director Neil Druckmann told Eurogamer that the team was "brainstorming some stuff", including sequel ideas. Later that month he said during an Ask Me Anything session on Reddit that the chances of a sequel were "50/50".

Since then, Naughty Dog have released The Last of Us Remastered for PlayStation 4 and The Last of Us: Game of the Year Edition for PlayStation 3, as well as a standalone version of the story DLC, Left Behind. The studio has been quiet on the prospect of a sequel, however.

During his MetroCon talk, North also revealed that eight months of work on Uncharted 4 had been scrapped when former creative director Amy Hennig left Naughty Dog, and that Hennig's new Star Wars game with Visceral would be "in the style of Uncharted."

Doubt its really a great secret. Everyone could presume a sequel in the franchise was coming. due to the enormous success of TLoU.

I wonder if it will be a direct sequel with the same characters, or if it will just be set in that world... can't wait to learn more... if it turns out to be real that is ;)

i'd think it a nice change to base the sequel in the same world but telling someone elses story, maybe the Story of Ish and his family

Joel and Tess and some sort of story there... (they've got 20 years to use, I doubt they were together all that time)... We've had a brief backstory already with Ellie..

Maybe something not to long after the prologue events of TLoU.. That's basically what Season 1 of The Walking Dead was..

Yeah bound to happen, no successful game is usually shelved after one title - make many!
