The Last of Us 'ripe for more stories,' Joel and Ellie's is over

The Last of Us' world may go on, but the book is closed for Joel and Ellie. Naughty Dog spoke with the PlayStation Blog about its latest game (which we loved, by the way), and gave a little bit of insight into potential sequels.

"I think the world [of The Last of Us] is ripe for more stories, but as far as the journey Joel and Ellie goes on it ends with this game," Creative Director Neil Druckmann said. "We were very conscious that we didn’t want to leave this story dangling. If we never do a sequel we’re ok with it, because we told the story we needed to tell."

Erm, there is still going to be that story-based DLC, though, which sounds like it will focus on other characters who pop up during the campaign. Maybe Naughty Dog didn't need to tell those stories, it just wanted to.
