During a recent Twitch live stream discussing the Uncharted Nathan Drake Collection, a Naughty Dog designer seemed to let a cat out of the bag when he mentioned the first Last of Us game.
Folks, there has only ever been one Last of Us released or announced or otherwise. This careless reference seems like a plain admission that the fantastic developer is working on a sequel to the incredible 2014 release.
It was Uncharted series writer Josh Scherr who had a slip of the tongue, talking up his co-worker Eric Baldwin's facial animation work on "all of the Uncharted games and the first The Last of Us."
Baldwin immediately recognized his error and attempted to backpedal, but he couldn't seem to come up with anything else to say. "Uh, did I say 'the first The Last of Us'? The first The Last of Us. Uh, The Last of Us! The first Last of Us."
They were also kind enough to upload a YouTube video of the incident in question. See for yourself:
It just seems like suuuuch a long wait until the Nov. 10 release of Fallout 4.
Bethesda must realize this, which is why it introduced the S.P.E.C.I.A.L. educational video series to tray to satisfy our craving for the wasteland RPG. This time, the PIP boys are tackling Perception.
You can watch the first video, covering Strength, here.
Just keep making these videos, Bethesda. We'll keep watching them.
