There’ll be no new game announcements to mark the tenth anniversary of The Last of Us’ release. Naughty Dog prefaced a slew of tangential announcements on Twitter today by confirming that it’ll only be honouring the “series’ impact” and will “not be making any game development updates”. This obviously follows a pretty concerning report in which it was alleged that production had been scaled back on The Last of Us 2’s hotly anticipated standalone multiplayer game.
Series creator Neil Druckmann did temporarily set pulses racing on social media when he said there’s “more The Last of Us coming your way”, but he could of course have been referring to the previously announced second season of HBO’s wildly successful television show.
As for the actual announcements Naughty Dog’s made to mark the occasion, it revealed a new Clicker statue it’s created with Dark Horse, as well as an upcoming art gallery collaboration with Nucleus. It’s also been talking a little bit about the impact of the game on its team, something which our very own Aaron Bayne discussed in the above video.
