He then referenced the upcoming The Last of Us HBO TV show which stars Pedro Pascal of Disney’s The Mandalorian and Bella Ramsay from Game of Thrones.

“We’re dying to share with you the multiple game projects we have in the works at Naughty Dog.”

While Druckman didn’t reveal any details about what’s in the works at the acclaimed PlayStation studio, several games have been rumoured to be in development for some time.

In December, it was revealed via a job listing that the developer is looking to hire a senior monetisation/economy designer for a multiplayer project.

According to the job listing, the project is described as the studio’s “first standalone multiplayer game”, according to the job listing. Adding that, the monetisation designer will help “build an incredible, player-friendly economy” and “will focus on in-game initiatives to increase revenue and conversion while maintaining a strong player-first value system.”

Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection releases for PlayStation later this month, while PC players will have to wait a bit longer. The collection sees Uncharted 4: A Thieves End and Uncharted: Lost Legacy come to PlayStation 5 with new visual enhancements.

In more PlayStation news, it’s been announced that Ghost Of Tsushima has shifted over 8million copies since it was released in July 2020. Sony announced the milestone as part of their CES 2022 conference.
