Naughty Dog has just released “The Last Part of Us” on PlayStation 4, which may be the developer’s final game on the console. Whether it is “Last of Us Part II”, new IP or other content, the team may transfer to PlayStation 5 for the next game. Neil Druckmann, vice president of Naughty Dog, now talks about PS5 and what it will enable developers to achieve.
When appearing on a new podcast by former Nintendo boss Reggie Fils-Aime, Druckman said that the new SSD for PS5 will help reduce the loading time and thus for the development of naughty dogs The merchant opens a new door.
Druckman pointed out that naughty dogs are already working to reduce the load area in the game, but this is possible because of the technical witchcraft behind the scenes that the player has never seen. Druckmann mocked that with PS5, developers will not have to be so cunning.
“In [console] For a generation, you will always feel shackled. You always feel that you are pushing a wall and discovering some small cracks, whether it is memory, CPU or hard disk speed, can make things go further. When you start a new generation, it is a double-edged sword,” Druckman said. “On the one hand, you have to build new technologies for new hardware, which can be a tough battle. But, on the other hand, you suddenly felt this freedom: “Oh my god, we can breathe again!”
“Ultimately, we have done a lot of work, and once you start taking risks, you will never see the loading screen again. And, there is still a lot of work to be done that is invisible to the player in how to design the level and divide the level behind the scenes. “; you will never see any work.” He added. “But now, knowing that we will be able to load content faster, it only means that designers don’t have to be constrained by how they lay out content. How do we think about things. When we load new characters, therefore, I’m happy to see open for us Door.”
As Druckmann confirmed, Naughty Dog will not jump into the PS5 game immediately because he confirms that he and the team took a short break after the release of The Last of Us Part II, holding their breath.
In the same podcast, Druckman talked about the Internet hatred around the second part of “Our Doomsday” and said that when making popular works, hatred and sulfuric acid are inevitable.
It is expected that Naughty Dog’s next game will be some kind of independent “Last of Us Part II” online experience. Considering the time schedule, this project (whatever it may be) seems likely to debut on PS5. However, little is known about this “Last of Us” game. Naughty Dog returned to Uncharted unexpectedly because the studio said Uncharted 4 and Lost Legacy are the last in a series of games they plan to make. However, you can use other studios to produce Uncharted 5.
Druckmann also recently confirmed that Naughty Dog has no plans to release a story DLC for the second part of “The Last of Us”.
The second part of “Last Us” sold more than 4 million albums in the first three days, setting a new record on PlayStation, surpassing other exclusives such as “Spider-Man”, “God of War” and “Uncharted 4” Album.
