Druckmann took to Reddit to respond to a comment asking the likelihood of gamers returning to the world of The Last of Us in the future. "If you're asking about a sequel ... right now I'd say it's 50/50."
While Druckmann didn't specify what will be required of the studio before a sequel is considered, he later commented that a new release featuring protagonists Joel and Ellie will only be made is it "doesn't repeat what we've done, but somehow builds on the original."
Naughty Dog released its final story-centric DLC The Last of Us: Left Behind earlier this month. The DLC takes place while Ellie is attending a military boarding school in the Boston quarantine zone, prior to meeting Joel and the events of The Last of Us.
Left Behind received an 8 out of 10 review from Polygon. "Left Behind feels like an important step for Naughty Dog," it reads. "It's aware of its own shortcomings and largely willing to focus on its strengths. It embraces the developer's impressive character development capabilities, and inches away from including elements that feel arbitrarily shoved in 'because it's a game.' Left Behind is small and quiet, but it's also confident in a way The Last of Us never quite achieved."
