The Last Of Us Part 3 is in development, says insider

The Last Of Us Part 3 is in development, says insider

An insider claims that development on the third game in The Last of Us series is already underway.

I hope you’re ready to feel empty inside. It’s alleged that the highly anticipated third instalment of The Last of Us series is in development, and it’s about time, too.

Naughty Dog has kept very quiet about the status of The Last of Us Part III. However, now that the TV adaptation's hype has worn off, and almost three years have passed since the release of Part II, gamers have been getting louder and louder when it comes to questioning what’s going on with the third game.

Take a look at Pedro Pascal modded into The Last of Us Part I below.

Back in March, The Last of Us developers Naughty Dog confirmed that the studio’s next game has already been decided. However, it wasn’t clear if this is the continuation of Ellie’s story that everyone’s been hoping for.

“I know the fans really want The Last of Us Part III,” The Last of Us co-creator and Naughty Dog president Neil Druckmann said at the time. “I hear about it all the time and all I can say is that we’re already into our next project so the decision has already been made, I can’t say what it is but that’s the process we went through. There was a lot of consideration about different things and we picked the thing we are most excited for.”

Now though, one insider on Twitter, @RPKGaming1, claims to have the news that all TLOU fans were not-so-secretly hoping would be revealed at the PlayStation Showcase last night: “The Last of Us Part 3 is currently in the works,” they wrote.

Now, as with any leak, do take this with a pinch of salt - fans reacting to the news on Reddit noted that this leaker “isn’t credible when it comes to games”, so maybe don’t get too excited about it. Even so, there’s still probably a pretty good chance that it’s true, because why wouldn’t Naughty Dog want to continue one of its greatest franchises? This leaker wasn't the first one to suggest as such, and they won't be the last.
