Naughty Dog’s Neil Druckmann and Bruce Stanley held a Reddit AMA a few days ago, revealing some details on development of The Last of Us and the possibility of a sequel.

While we know the team is working on the final multiplayer DLC for The Last of Us, the guys did hint that the team may be working on additional content as well, or is at least teasing something concerning The Last of Us.

“We’re working on the 3rd DLC drop for MP right now! …and maybe something else… we’ll see,” said Stanley.

While many are hoping for a sequel to The Last of Us, including us, Neil responded to these questions stating that the chances of a sequel happening is “50/50”. He went on to explain that Sony has given them complete trust in their decisions for what projects they will be working on.

“If you’re asking about a sequel… right now I’d say it’s 50/50…..Sony has complete trust in us,” Said Druckmann. “It’s really up to us to come up with something that will keep the team inspired for the next several years — which is why we don’t take the decision of what we’ll work on next lightly.”

The team also discussed their thoughts on the PlayStation 4’s memory, and while they haven’t had much time with it, they are very excited to start utilizing it to it’s full potential, like on the layStation 3.

“Dunno really – the DLC is on the PS3, so we haven’t gotten a whole lot of time with the ‘next-next gen’ hardware,” Stanley added. “But I’m excited about having more memory, until we use it all up again!”

If you are interested, Sony also released a Making of Video for the Last of Us, which is a little over an hour long. You can watch it below. It’s rather interesting to see the work that went into the development and acting for the game.
