Naughty Dog co-president Neil Druckmann recently explained the process the studio went through when deciding which game to develop next, although he wasn’t willing to divulge if it’s making The Last of Us Part 3 or something else.
“I know the fans really want Last of Us Part 3,” he told Kinda Funny. “I hear about it all of the time and all I can say is that look, we’re already into our next project, so the decision has already been made. I can’t say what it is, but that’s the process we went through, that there was a lot of consideration of different things, and we picked the thing we were most excited for.”
