Rumours About Fresh Naughty Dog IP Are Looming, Again



Uh oh — it's happening again. Self-proclaimed industry insiders are once again looking to social media to shed light on watered-down rumours. This time, however, it's Naughty Dog that has found itself slumped in the heated seat.

According to a certain Twitter leaker (known locally as @RalphsValve), the Uncharted developer is working on an exciting new IP, as opposed to a full-fledged remake of an old game, like fans had originally hoped for. On top of that, the insider has also pinned his knowledge on the game bringing a black protagonist to the table — the first in Naughty Dog's wealthy portfolio, surprisingly enough.

But the breadcrumbs just sort of stop there.  Without a setting or even a rough release date to boot, the supposed insider just leaves the trail without any further lead to go on. And so, because of that, we're basically inclined to just take it with a heavy lump of salt and be done with it. Of course, it's entirely up to you whether or not you buy into it. However, we for one, as sceptical as always, can't seem to wrap our heads around such an announcement.

So, not a multiplayer mode for The Last of Us then?

Of course, a shred of hope still glues to the multiplayer mode that's supposedly coming to The Last of UsOriginally mentioned a little while back, Naughty Dog are believed to be working on something in the background that's build in the same universe as The Last of Us. But that's about all we've been given. And although Naughty Dog has confirmed its existence — it's still unclear whether or not it'll even come out.

So, if it's not a multiplayer mode for The Last of Us — then what is it? Who is this “black protagonist” that the Twitter leaker mentions in his post? Well, your guess is as good as ours. One thing is for sure, anyway — and that is Naughty Dog is, in fact, working on something. Something that, in all honesty, we probably won't catch a glimpse of until 2022.

So, what are your thoughts? Do you buy the latest rumours? Let us know over on our socials here.
