The Last Of Us Remake: A Job Offer Can’t Go Wrong

There are more exciting things to notice around Naughty Dog if you pay a little more attention e.g. The Last Of Us Remake…


The team haven’t been showing off what they’re working on lately. In theory, the multiplayer Factions that was left out of The Last of Us Part II for PlayStation 4 last summer could be one of their projects, and HBO is working on a series adaptation of the game, but that’s about it for the official information stream (if you can call it that…).

OpAttack wrote (and then deleted… we can’t link to it) that Naughty Dog is looking for a technical game designer whose job will not be easy (assisting in implementing existing gameplay systems into a new framework). And this is a pretty typical step for a remake: the basics are there, but the content needs to be moved to some more modern technology. However, the job announcement is for Naughty Dog and several PlayStation studios. It can’t be a coincidence for The Last of Us, initially released in 2013 for PlayStation 3 and then a year later for PlayStation 4 under the subtitle Remastered.

We’d also like to draw your attention to one more of the studio’s job ads. Here’s what the job description mentions: “Embark on Naughty Dog’s newest adventure – the studio’s first standalone multiplayer game! We’re seeking to bring the same level of ambition and quality of our signature, story-driven games to this unique multiplayer project, so we are looking for an experienced, creative, and collaborative Monetization Designer to help us build an incredible and player-friendly economy. This position will have the opportunity to be highly innovative and make their mark by developing a best-in-class economy system from the ground up.”

It is a reference to The Last of Us: Factions, which is separate from The Last of Us Part II and has been rumoured before, as the game was released on PlayStation 4 a year and a half ago, and the studio has not released the multiplayer element, which was made independent because of its ambition and scope…
