The voice actor behind The Last of Us protagonist Joel has said that a sequel to the critically acclaimed action-adventure title is not currently on the horizon.
Speaking during an interview with VideoGamer.com, Troy Baker said he would jump at the chance to reprise his role as the grizzly hero for a potential sequel, but admitted nothing is in the pipeline right now.
"There’s nothing on the horizon right now," said Baker. "It’s to the credit of Neil and Bruce and everyone at Naughty Dog for creating a story and a world that is so rich and immersive that people want more of the story. That’s a really hard thing to accomplish.
"To even make a game is a miracle. To have a game that can grow into something else, and not just in a franchise sense – they want to know more about the characters; they want to know more about the world; they have questions. That’s a truly remarkable thing.
"If we [Troy Baker and Ashley Johnson] are fortunate for them to ask us back, I gladly would."
The Last of Us is getting a PlayStation 4 overhaul next week featuring enhanced 1080p/60fps visuals, and ships with all existing downloadable content, including Left Behind. The game arrives in the U.S. on July 29 and in Europe on August 1.
Developer Naughty Dog is currently working on Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End for PS4 and is also beavering away on a major new project.
