News on The Last of Us sequel.

Naughty Dog has given its clearest indication yet that it's planning a sequel to 2013 Game of the Year, The Last of Us. The developer's community strategist Arne Meyer has told Videogamer.com that for the studio to not seriously consider The Last of Us 2 "would be a disservice to ourselves and our fans".

He's careful not to promise anything, but the phrasing is very positive – and makes it clear that both Naughty Dog and gamers alike want to see it happen. It is, as always, a question of finding a story worth telling.

"I think we always make a smart decision in that all of our games are self-contained stories so they don't have to continue if we don't want them to or if there's no reason for them to continue," Meyer explained. "It really comes down to is there something interesting in this universe we've created that we want to continue to explore? Is it something that we can get the entire team passionate about? Is it something we can get the creative directors excited about and then we could continue it?"

He goes on to confirm that sequel concepts are being discussed. "We're just starting to explore ideas of what more could there be in this universe and starting that decision process. That doesn't mean the end result is guaranteed."

For now, all eyes are on the upcoming The Last of Us: Remastered, which spruces the PlayStation 3 original up for PlayStation 4, and includes all the previously released DLC. The developer has also confirmed that it will be continuing to support the game with new multiplayer content over the next year.

The Last of Us: Remastered is out on August 1st.
