Neil Druckmann has recently teased about a new project, and whether it’s The Last of Us Part II multiplayer mode, or even a new title, is still not yet known.
The 2020 is about to end, and as you well know it was a very difficult year for the video game publishers, who have had to go through – like virtually everyone – various complications related to coronavirus. Despite this, it was still a year full of new content, which saw the entry into the field of highly anticipated titles such as The Last of Us Part II and Cyberpunk 2077.
Neil Druckmann, the current vice president of Naughty Dog, underlined in a tweet how the last period was particularly stressful and full of work, however later he made a decidedly not insignificant clarification:
Aaaannnd that’s a wrap on a crazy, stressful, scary, and gratifying work year. We cannot wait to share the new things we’re working on. Until then… Happy Holidays, y’all!

With this surprising message, Druckmann has effectively teased his general public by announcing that Naughty Dog is currently working on something new: whether it is a new title? The hypothesis posed by the fans is legitimate, since the Californian team is one of the main spearheads of PlayStation Studios.
In addition to this, we will most likely have the latest news regarding the long-awaited multiplayer mode of The Last of Us Part II, which the community has been waiting for since the release of the game. The wait is still long, however, even Druckmann himself wished us to enjoy the holidays without thinking too much stress since perhaps we will have important news as early as the beginning of next year!
The Last of Us Part II, released on June 19 as a PlayStation 4 exclusive after numerous postponements, was unquestionably a huge success, encountering a lot of positive feedback from the public and video game critics. Just recently, the title in question was elected as the best game of the year at the much anticipated The Game Awards 2020.
