Naughty Dog: a medieval fantasy game on PS5?  Senior Concept Artist Switches Images

Now that The Last of Us Part 2 is out, and that it has scooped all the awards it deserved in 2020, the Naughty Dog studio can finally focus on the sequel. A new game which seems already well advanced and which promises to be “super cool” if we are to believe the message posted by Neil Druckmann in person, the now co-president of the studio, on his Twitter account. Naughty Dog is recruiting en masse for this new project and it may well be that we have already discovered the first images of the game, at least the drafts? How is it possible ? Through Hyoung Nam, a Senior Concept Artist at Naughty Dog, who has published three artworks on his portfolio, which feature “Women of the North”. So far, nothing very extraordinary, except that these illustrations are accompanied by a catchphrase that has not left anyone indifferent: “Inspired by the new game, you know what I’m talking about …;)”

As much to say to you that this legend obviously changes the situation, and it did not take less to ignite the Internet and that speculations are starting to germinate within video game forums. What should we understand from Hyoung Nam’s intervention? Dumpling on his part? Want to troll the planet JV? Or just want to leave clues to suggest the future of Naughty Dog? We could indeed see a subtle and disguised way of taking the temperature that this new direction taken by the studio, used to offering us games with a more realistic concept (Uncharted, The Last of Us). By offering a medieval-fantastic universe and no doubt by drawing on Nordic mythology, the Californian studio can take a risk, and this way of communicating can help to take the ambient temperature. If the players seem rather excited at the idea of ​​finding Naught Dog on a less usual ground, we see that it is always the strong women who are put forward, and that, it is rather neat.
