When you’re a studio as massive as Naughty Dog, something is going to get away from you. Case in point: QA tester Corey Hong’s online resume refers to an “unannounced remake project”. Of course, we know exactly what that game is: The Last of Us. Despite being less than 10 years old, it has been known for some time that the Californian studio is recreating Joel and Ellie’s original outing for PlayStation 5; in fact, some believe that the project is almost finished.
Since the studio itself doesn’t acknowledge the project, and Sony is as secretive as it gets, this will serve as a reminder of what the developer is up to. We also know that a standalone The Last of Us multiplayer game is in the works, and we suspect that both are scheduled to release alongside the TV show. We’re curious when Naughty Dog will officially recognize these games; it has been terribly silent for years.
