Among the various projects in the pipeline at the studios of Naughty Dog now we know for sure that there is also a remake of one of their historical IPs. The confirmation comes from the LinkedIn resume of quality assurance tester Corey Hong. Sara The Last of Us?
According to the duties mentioned in the LinkedIn profile, we learn that he is working or has worked in the past at 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.
The third project, literally described as a “remake not yet announced“, confirming that in fact the studio is working on a makeover 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 cannot exclude a priori a priori remake of the first Uncharted, as recently the LinkedIn profile of Marie Drake McBreaty, Naughty Dog’s chief of staff, mentions that her work is about building “future teams not only for new titles but also for the Uncharted legacy.” 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.
