Uncharted 3′s The Last of Us Easter Egg an Accident, Devs Say

According to the team at Naughty Dog, an Easter Egg in Uncharted 3 that alluded to The Last of Us was never supposed to make it into the game—and only did so by accident.

“We should have taken it out,” creative director Neil Druckmann told Kotaku. “We screwed up.”

The Easter Egg in question is a newspaper found on the far end of the bar from the game’s opening moments that contains a headline reading “Scientists still struggling to understand deadly virus.”

“These games are so big, right,” game director Bruce Straley told Kotaku. “They’re several hours long. Every single pixel has to be touched. Every animation is created from hand. It’s overwhelming. You can’t look over every detail. So this one little thing in the background, nobody’s thinking about that.”

Fortunately for Naughty Dog, because Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception had just shipped, most fans dismissed the accidental Easter Egg as anything but a project currently being worked on by the company.
