As Naughty Dog recently hinted at, the studio has started work behind the scenes on a new project for the PlayStation 5. Artworks put into circulation by Hyoung Nam, a senior concept artist at Naughty Dog, provide fresh speculation.
In the past few weeks, there has been increasing evidence that the Uncharted and The Last of Us creators of Naughty Dog have started work on a new project for the PlayStation 5.
The rumors were recently backed up by none other than Neil Druckmann, lead writer and co-director of Naughty Dog, who indicated that his studio is currently looking for new staff to work on a “cool project.” Unfortunately, it is still unclear what the fans of the studio can look forward to in detail. Could the as-yet-unannounced Naughty Dog title be an adventure with a fantasy setting?
This could at least be indicated by artworks published by Hyoung Nam, a senior concept artist at Naughty Dog. You can check the image at the top of this news that shows, among other things, a fantasy setting and a female warrior. The three artworks are named “The Women of North” and were headed “Inspire from new game. You know what I’m talking about…” provided.
Since the studio or Hyoung Nam did not want to comment on the published artworks so far, it remains to be seen what is hidden behind them in detail. Any specific reference to Naughty Dog’s PS5 project? Or maybe the artwork comes from the development of a title that has been discontinued in the meantime?
A possible fantasy adventure from the studio could not be ruled out. After all, the studio pointed out last year that in addition to successors or new titles to The Last of Us or Uncharted, a completely new brand for the PlayStation 5 was also conceivable. When the official unveiling of the next Naughty Dog title can be expected is unfortunately still not known.
