After the overwhelming success of The Last of Us Part 2 and the release of the HBO television adaptation, Naughty Dog is on everyone’s lips. The amazing success of The Last of Us HBO series has raised a big question among fans of the game’s story: Will there be a Last of Us 3? Well, after the rumors on the internet, finally Neil Druckmann has spoken about it.

The Naughty Dog co-president confirmed in a virtual interview with BuzzFeed that The Last of Us Part 3 is not in development. In addition, he has finally confirmed that the Uncharted story has ended.

The story of The Last of Us could be… over?

In the last year and a half, The Last of Us has been without a doubt the most popular video game series among all gamers. After the release of TLOU part 2, the release of the first remastered game on PC, and the premiere of the HBO adaptation, the game has not stopped being in the news. Everywhere you go, you’re likely to find someone talking about TLOU.

Currently, The Last of Us is trending thanks to the HBO series. Which is, without a doubt, the best adaptation of a video game to a series/movie. Therefore, you would think that Naughty Dog would use the moment to announce the development of part 3 of the game. Because of this, many rumors have grown in recent days confirming that part 3 is in development. But thanks to an interview with BuzzFeed, Neil Druckmann has come to the forefront to confirm information.

Despite the latter, the news, for many people, may not be all good news. In an excerpt from the interview, Neil is asked about the rumors of TLOU Part 3. Druckmann said “… I know there’s a bunch of people wondering about The Last of Us Part 3 and whether that will be a thing or not. … just because something is successful, people think there’s all this pressure and we have to make a sequel. That’s not the case. “

Adding to this, Druckmann explained that the possibility of such a release rests on whether the team feels creative enough to see the project through or not “Likewise, with The Last of Us, it’s up to us whether we want to continue it or not. Our process is the same thing we did when we did Part 2… If we can’t come up with something, we have a very strong ending with Part 2 and that will be the end.”

So, it’s a matter of waiting and seeing if Naughty Dog gives us a continuation of the story or another story in the same universe.
