Naughty Dog quality assurance tester Corey Hong has listed an “unannounced remake project” onto his LinkedIn profile.
Hong has worked for Naughty Dog since 2019 has worked on titles such as The Last of Us Part 2, Uncharted Legacy of Thieves Collection, as well as two unannounced projects which include a remake and a multiplayer title.
In April of last year, Bloomberg stated that there was supposedly a remake of Naughty Dog’s 2013 Last of Us that would be coming to PS5. Reportedly the remake was originally in the hands of PlayStation’s Visual Arts Service Group before they were taken off the project and assigned to a support role.
Interestingly the remake is now back in the hands of its original creators – Naughty Dog – which supposedly has taken back control of the remake since it has completed Last of Us Part 2 development.
VGC also reports that the Last of Us remake could release in the second half of 2022 and will release on the PS5 stating that “VGC also heard from our own sources that the unannounced game is nearing completion”.
Naughty Dog co-president Neil Druckman spoke during Sony’s CES 2022 conference at the beginning of the year where he stated that he was “dying to share with fans the multiple game projects” Naughty Dog is currently working on.
Naughty Dog is also currently working on a standalone multiplayer title and while we still don’t know any specifics on what that could entail, we do know that the Last of Us Part 2’s delayed online mode was actually expanded into its own title.
Meanwhile the Last of Us TV show that is currently in the works which is being produced by HBO will supposedly not release until 2023, according to the studio.
