Has Naughty Dog Accidentally Confirmed The Last of Us 2…Again?

Another day and another rumour for The Last of Us 2 emerges. At this point it seems accepted to believe that it is not a case of if the sequel will come, but when.

This latest rumour has sprung up based on Naughty Dog’s Uncharted Moments livestream. According to Playfront, during the event, the commentary include this line:

“… And he was the one responsible for the facial animations for the three Uncharted games and the first The Last of Us game .. I just said the first game The Last of Us?”

What do we read from this? I’m sure Naughty Dog want us to read it as The Last of Us 2 is in development. At this point, especially when Nolan North made a similar “mistake” this is all just part of teasing fans with the prospect of a sequel to one of their most popular games.

With the success of The Last of Us it is easy to assume that a sequel would be in the works, we don’t even need these mistakes to work that out ourselves. I’m sure Naughty Dog have fun creating them though, or at least having to deal with all the questions they bring. It is all part of the fun of building up anticipation for a future release.

Obviously, we probably won’t hear any news about The Last of Us 2 until after Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End is completed and released on Playstation 4. Then we’ll see the sudden reveal of The Last of Us 2 and all the rumours will have been proven true. Why is that? Because the rumours all pretty much say “The Last of Us 2 is coming.”

Of course, maybe Naughty Dog won’t release it, then this rumour and all the rest will be false. It could happen.
