In a recent Last of Us video released by Sony, a fan of IGN’s PlayStation podcast, Podcast Beyond, may have discovered tidbits over Naughty Dogs next-gen title.
According to IGN user NickoMcBrain, the 2:42 mark in the video above displays still art in the background featuring characters not fitting in the Last of Us, which is in a post-apocalyptic 21st century setting where society has not functioned for two decades. Instead, McBrain theorizes their attire could be from the “17th/18th century… maybe even pirates.” He doesn’t seem too far off.
Below are the pictures from IGN’s article with zoomed in shots of the still art.
Then again, for all we know, these could be characters for Last of Us’ multiplayer, which is still a mystery as to how it is going to play.
Human versus human? Human versus Infected? Infected versus Infected? Maybe with this discovery, Pirates versus Human versus Infected?
What do you think? Could this in fact be still art from Naughty Dog’s next game? Perhaps it has to do with Last of Us’ cryptic multiplayer? Or, or… maybe it’s an Uncharted game about one of Nathan Drake’s ancestors?! Let us know what you think in the comments section below.
