According to the C.V. of a former Naughty Dog employee, The Last of Us 2 is a thing.
The Linkedin profile of Michael Knowland, who worked as a lead character artist for Uncharted and The Last of Us developer Naughty Dog, reveals that the developer has been working on a sequel to The Last of Us since early this year.
Knowland has left Naughty Dog recently. During his time there, he was working on Uncharted 4 and The Last of Us 2.
Here’s what the profile page says, in case it gets removed:
That “Last of Us 2” bit was added recently, previously it just said “Unannounced AAA game.” Which is still what it says on the profile Frank Tzeng, who’s a current Naughty Dog staffer.
It may be too early for us to hear about a sequel to The Last of Us during next year’s E3, but we can hope.
