Naughty Dog, the developer behind the Uncharted series and the critically acclaimed The Last of Us, may have accidentally leaked the existence of The Last of Us 2 during a livestream. The stream was focused on the upcoming Nathan Drake Collection, which contains a remaster of all three Uncharted games for the Playstation 4. While talking about the facial expressions in the series the speaker accidentally let it slip that the lead animator worked on Uncharted “and [on] the first The Last of Us.” He then goes on to say, “Uh, did I say the first The Last of Us?” and becomes incredibly flustered. You can judge the video and the speaker’s slip up for yourself below.
While this isn’t official confirmation of The Last of Us 2, it certainly does point the way as Uncharted 4 is wrapping up its development cycle and is being released this March.
