Could Naughty Dog's Next Game Be First Person?
Not out of the question.
Naughty Dog has created some of the most treasured and best selling 3rd person games of all time, such as Uncharted, The Last Of Us, and Crash Bandicoot. Due to their success with 3rd person titles, you may be surprised to hear that their next game could be first person.
Neil Drukmann, creative director for The Last Of Us: Part 2, attended a panel at the DICE Summit 2018, where he revealed that before Naughty Dog settled on the original Last Of Us being 3rd person, there were talks of it being first person. As we all know, the first person idea wasn't used, but that doesn't mean that the studio has abandoned the idea of making a first person game entirely.
"We're totally open. The future, the next game that we do might not be third person". Drukmann said.
A first person entry would be a departure to Naughty Dog's previous work, though some of you may remember that this wouldn't be the first time the studio has stepped outside of its comfort zone; they were known for their mascot platformers before deciding to go for a realistic art style with a more grounded story with the Uncharted series.
Of course, the above quote is no confirmation, though it does show us that first person is not out of the question.
