The Last of Us World ‘Ripe for More Stories’ Says Creative Director

In an interview with PlayStation Blog, The Last of Us creative director Neil Druckmann mentioned how he thinks the game’s world is “ripe for more stories,” but Joel and Ellie’s tale has concluded.

“I think the world is ripe for more stories, but as far as the journey Joel and Ellie goes on it ends with this game,” Druckmann said. “We were very conscious that we didn’t want to leave this story dangling. If we never do a sequel we’re ok with it, because we told the story we needed to tell.”

In May, Sony registered domains for “thelastofus2.com” and “thelastofus3.com”—perhaps only to park those domains, but considering the very positive critical reception to Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us—including from EGM’s own Eric L. Patterson’s review—if the game sells banana cakes, continuations seem likely—just not necessarily starring Joel and Ellie, which would be super original and fascinating.

The Last of Us launches exclusively on PS3 next week, June 14th, worldwide.
