The release of The Last of Us Part II is far too new for Sony to speak publicly about the future of the series’ video games. To believe a personality closely tied to the universe created by Naughty Dog, the Californian studio might not be through with The Last of Us.

For those who have played The Last of Us and The Last of Us Part II, the melodies composed by Gustavo Santaolalla for these songs are essential ingredients for their success. The soundtrack of the second episode is one of the soundtracks that were nominated for the Game Awards in the category “Best Music of the Year”. To celebrate this date, the composer cracked a tweet that is enough to mesmerize fans of The Last of Us:
and @Neil_Druckmann for the invitation to this adventure. That’s just the beginning!@Playstation https://t.co/qkkxZ7vveA pic.twitter.com/dVHNprJpZR

I am happy and grateful. The Last of Us Part II was nominated in 9 Game Awards categories, including Best Music. Many thanks to Naughty Dog and Neil Druckmann for inviting me to join this adventure. This is just the beginning!
The most interesting element of this tweet, of course, is the little “This is just the beginning” that appears at the end of the message. Does the musician mean other The Last of Us games are already planned for Naughty Dog? Or is he referring to the series The Last of Us, the production of which was recently formalized by the American broadcaster HBO and which he will contribute? Impossible to say at the moment. Anyway, Sony’s license is clearly not finished talking about it.
What do you think Gustavo Santaolalla implies? Do you think Naughty Dog will develop a Last of Us Part III? What would you like to see in a new game in the series? Tell us everything in the comments below.
