The Last Of Us Part 3 Is Not Guaranteed As Naughty Dog Says It’s ‘Up To Us Whether We Want To Continue It Or Not’

Rumors of The Last of Us Part 3 have been doing the rounds for a couple of months now, but Naughty Dog has admitted it can move on from the franchise without making a third instalment in the critically acclaimed franchise if it feels inclined to do so.

Speaking with BuzzFeed, Neil Druckmann said that The Last of Us Part 3 will be made if there’s something worth telling in the story, making it clear nothing has been set in stone yet.

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. All I could say is, at Naughty Dog we’re very, very privileged that our publisher is Sony — which means Sony funds our games, supports us, and we’re owned by Sony.

Our process is the same thing we did when we did Part 2, which is if we can come up with a compelling story that has this universal message and statement about love — just like the first and second game did — then we will tell that story. If we can’t come up with something, we have a very strong ending with Part 2 and that will be the end.

Back in December, leaker ViewerAnon claimed that Naughty Dog is working on The Last of Us Part 3, and Druckmann himself said in a recent interview that he thinks ‘there’s more story to tell‘ in regards to the future of the franchise.
