Naughty Dog has started hiring for a new project, but it’s not clear if it’s a new IP or The Last Of Us Part 3.
Now, Naughty Dog has done the same, announcing that it is hiring for a wide range of positions at the studio.
Unlike the Star Wars example, though, Naughty Dog hasn’t explicitly confirmed what its next major game is, with co-president Neil Druckmann only saying that they’re working on ‘something very cool.’
Last year, Druckmann said that Naughty Dog’s next project would either be The Last Of Us Part 3 or a new IP altogether, though you shouldn’t expect an official announcement for a while considering how long the studio takes to make its games.
At the very least, whatever the new game is will likely feature melee combat, given one of the roles is a melee/gameplay animator.
The level/environment designer position specifically mentions single-player, so you can probably expect another solo adventure.
Naughty Dog is currently working on a Last Of Us Part 2 multiplayer spin-off, but the studio has been extremely quiet about it. In September, Druckmann even asked fans to be patient, implying it was still a long way away from coming out.
The Last Of Us Part 2 was meant to feature multiplayer in the base game but Naughty Dog decided to cut it out and focus on the single-player experience.
