The Last Of Us 2 prototypes will be 'resurrected' once Uncharted 4's DLC is done

That The Last Of Us 2 is likely to happen isn't exactly new. Creative director Neil Druckmann has openly talked about planning the sequel before, but now we have more of a timescale for its development.

"Before my partner, Bruce [Straley] and I, my directing partner, came on to Uncharted 4 we were working on prototypes for different ideas within The Last Of Us universe," says Druckmann. He also teases that "without going into specific genres [there were] ideas outside the The Last Of Us," as well.

However, according to Druckmann, "all those things were left on hold when we had to come onto Uncharted 4 to direct the project." Which obviously leaves the question: when will he and Bruce get back to thinking about clickers? "Our next focus is the single player [Uncharted 4] DLC and then, once we have enough resources, resurrect all those prototypes; see where we're at, see where the teams at, what they’re excited for and go from there."
