Naughty Dog's Latest Is The Last Of Us

Studio owner Sony promises that Naughty Dog's latest game, directed by Uncharted 2 lead Bruce Straley, will be a "genre-defining experience that blends survival and action elements."
Sony-owned Naughty Dog is developing a new action game called The Last of Us, the company revealed Saturday. The title is the latest to come from the Santa Monica-based studio, which is primarily known for its Uncharted franchise. According to Sony, the title promises "a genre-defining experience that blends survival and action elements." The plot centers around two protagonists surviving in a world where the human population has been decimated by a plague. The game will be directed by studio veteran Bruce Straley, who also oversaw 2009's Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. Naughty Dog's latest, Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception, is one of Sony's biggest cash cows this holiday season. The game shipped 3.8 million units worldwide during its November debut, putting it on track to be the highest-selling entry in the trilogy. The Last of Us will be exclusive to the PlayStation 3. A trailer for the game is available on its newly-launched website.
