Co-President Neil Druckmann not too long ago teased that the studio is engaged on “something very cool.” Job descriptions recommend that Naughty Dog’s subsequent recreation will characteristic hand-to-hand fight, which does match into a fantasy setting, however we’re simply placing items of the puzzle collectively so don’t take our phrase for it.
