The Last of Us: Part 3 has begun development claims insider

The Last of Us: Part 3 has begun its development, claims an industry insider. We know this comes as shocking news to all!

To quote Lance Storm and be serious for a minute. Regardless of whether we knew this news was coming, it would likely come as reassurance to fans of The Last of Us.

Druckmann hinted The Last of Us 3 is coming

As reported by insidergaming.com (thanks Push Square), news of the insider information is courtesy of Twitter user, ViewerAnon. That being said, in April 2021, Naughty Dog chief Neil Druckmann previously stated that The Last of Us: Part 3 “has a story, but development hadn’t begun.

Druckmann revealed that TLOU3 had a story nearly two years ago, so it’s very likely that development is already underway. Which could back up the claims made by ViewerAnon.

Well, I’m not watching anything, so… Dr. Uckmann’s next game is THE LAST OF US PART III which is currently in production at Naughty Dog,” they tweeted.

Take The Last of Us 3 rumours with a pinch of salt

Obviously, we must take all rumours with a pinch of salt until proven otherwise. However, ViewerAnon did try to back up their credentials by previously revealing details about Ashely Johnson’s role in The Last of Us HBO series as well as information on Crash Bandicoot 4.

What’s more, they pointed out that gaming isn’t their industry but insinuated that they have sources in the know. So make of that what you will.

The Last of Us: Part 3 is said to be Naughty Dog’s next major release following the multiplayer spin-off set within its universe.

Nonetheless, I think news of The Last of Us: Part 3 being in development is about as reliable as your pet dog dropping a gas bomb on Christmas day.

Is Naughty Dog working on Uncharted?

In another tweet, ViewerAnon claimed that the new Uncharted will arrive after TLOU3, but will be developed by a different studio.

Back in January 2021, rumours were making the rounds that Days Gone developer, Bend Studio were working on a new Uncharted game, before Naughty Dog took over the project.
