The LinkedIn profile of Corey Hong, Naughty Dog’s quality assurance tester, confirmed that the studio is working on a remake.
Among the various projects in the pipeline at Naughty Dog studios we now know for sure that there is also a remake of one of their historic IPs. The confirmation comes from the LinkedIn resume of quality assurance tester Corey Hong. Will it be The Last of Us ?
According to the tasks mentioned in the LinkedIn profile, we learn that he is working or has worked in the past on three different projects . The first is Uncharted, Collection: Legacy of Thieves for PS5 and in a few months also available for PC . The second is an unannounced multiplayer game, which we assume will be The Last of Us’s highly anticipated standalone multiplayer.
Far more interesting is the third project, literally described as a ” remake not yet announced “, confirming that the studio is actually working on a remake of one of its games. The most likely candidate is the first The Last of Us obviously, considering the amount of rumors circulated in recent months.
However, we can’t rule out a remake of the first Uncharted a priori , as recently the LinkedIn profile of Marie Drake McBreaty , Naughty Dog’s staff manager, mentions that her work is about creating “future teams not only for new titles but also for the legacy of Uncharted “. Less likely, however, a possible remake of Jak and Daxter, but never say never.
In any case, to know for sure we just have to wait for official news. According to a recent message from Neil Druckmann, Naughty Dog’s vice president, the studio currently appears to have three games in development .
