Today’s discovery comes from the website Twisted voxel. In fact, the latter recently saw a status change with several developers on the Naughty Dog team. Indeed, Vinit Agarwal and Richard Cambier became co-directors and directors, respectively, last September when they both previously served as lead game designer.
If it’s impossible to categorically state what the two men are working on, one of the likely hypotheses would be the PS5 version of The Last of Us Part II, a version that adds the multiplayer portion of the title (which the studio has) pulling intend to separate from Solo on PS4 so that you can focus on the latter). Indeed, Vinit Agarwal presents himself in his profile primarily as a designer of multiplayer games. So it wouldn’t be surprising if Vinit Agarwal worked on the multiplayer experience in the world of The Last of Us Part II.
Games yes, but which ones?
As for Richard CambierIt is conceivable that he is working on this PS5 version of the adventures of Ellie and Abby, just as it is conceivable that he will be working by his side to develop Naughty Dog’s next game, the studio’s first indie game . appear on PS5. Also note that other California studio figures were promoted between August and October.
In addition, the many vacancies Naughty Dog’s release last December shows the Sony Worldwide Studios member is currently hiring and preparing for the sequel. There are currently over 400 people working for Naughty Dog, which seems to offer the possibility of developing multiple games at the same time.
As a reminder, Naughty Dog and its parent company have still not revealed their plans for The Last of Us Part II on PS5. While other Sony PS4 exclusive products like Days Gone or Ghost of Tsushima have already received a free update to take advantage of the power of the PS5, gamers still don’t know what Sony has in store for TLOU2. Which leads to the belief that a surrender in the Jim Ryan Company’s plans is good.
