A new leak provides details on some upcoming Naughty Dog projects, including The Last of Us Factions and a new IP with a fantasy setting.

p>Naughty Dog is considered to be one of Sony’s best first-party studios. The developer has released major hits for all PlayStation consoles and has received several awards for its work on the Uncharted and The Last of Us franchises.

It has been almost 2 years since Naughty Dog released The Last of Us 2, and fans have been patiently waiting for new announcements. Naughty Dog has confirmed that it’s working on a multiplayer title set in The Last of Us universe, and rumors suggest that a remake of the original The Last of Us is also in development at the studio. Now, a new leak shares details on some of Naughty Dog’s upcoming projects. As always, every leak should be taken with a grain of salt.

This information comes from Oops Leaks, with IGN later reporting it. It states that the upcoming The Last of Us multiplayer game began as a battle royale title, but it was completely rebooted. It’s now a mix between Escape from Tarkov and The Division, with more modes based on the original Factions game mode from The Last of Us. The leaker describes it as an online game that offers a singleplayer-like experience, adding that it will be a free-to-play title that will launch on PS5, with a PC release scheduled for later.

The leak also confirms that Naughty Dog is working on a new IP with a fantasy setting. This singleplayer game is currently in full production; however, Naughty Dog Co-President Neil Druckmann is not involved with this project. Finally, the leaker claims that Naughty Dog has outlined a script for The Last of Us 3, but the studio is busy with other projects and the game has reportedly not entered the production stage.

There is a lot of information in this leak, but everything seems plausible. Many fans expected Naughty Dog to work on a new IP for PS5, and it’s fair to expect the studio to release the third game in The Last of Us series at some point. Neil Druckmann did hint at three games being in development at Naughty Dog, which also matches the number of titles described in this leak.

However, it’s strange that the leaker does not mention The Last of Us remake. The game may be near completion, and they probably do not have anything new to reveal. Whatever Naughty Dog is working on next, fans can expect to see it at an upcoming PlayStation Showcase event.
