The Last of Us 2 is currently in the “brainstorming” stages over at Naughty Dog, and so is a new IP.

Speaking with Eurogamer, writer and creative director Neil Druckmann said, “We just wrapped up Left Behind, and Bruce Straley, the game director, and I have been doing this for over four years now. So it’s just time for a break, and to recharge the batteries.

“We have started brainstorming some stuff,” Druckmann added. “To be honest, some of them are sequel ideas, and some of them are brand new IP – we’ve spent the last few weeks brainstorming new IP. So we have to get some good steps and see… It’s kind of like how we approached Left Behind.

“Can we tell people a story that’s really worth telling, and that’s not repeating itself? And if we can’t, where can we get inspired – what is something that’s really going to challenge us, and push storytelling in this medium forward?”

Naughty Dog is also working at the moment on a new Uncharted game for the PS4.

Do you want to see a sequel to the best new IP of 2013, or do you think Joel and Ellie’s story is finished, and Naughty Dog should move on to bringing us new, hopefully even more interesting titles?
