Dragons and unicorns don't usually mix with Naughty Dog games, but fans believe that the award-winning studio's next IP will feature both prominent fantasy elements and more.
The rumor comes from new posters found in The Last of Us Part 1. Fans claim to have seen these new additions to the remake that weren't in the original PlayStation 3 version nor the remaster for the PlayStation 4. The posters in question show a dragon, a woman wearing what looks like a fantasy-themed attire, a flying Pegasus, and so much more. But, the most interesting part is that this isn't the first time Naughty Dog has pulled off something similar.
A good example is in Uncharted 3, where a newspaper talks about a deadly fungus. It was obviously talking about The Last of Us, which came out two years later in 2013. In addition, we've heard talks of a fantasy game in production at Naughty Dog before that will be made without Neil Druckmann's involvement. Finally, one of the concept art pieces also appears in The Last of Us Part II in Abby's section.
Given that Druckmann will have his hands full on HBO's The Last of Us, which recently got a teaser, we wouldn't be surprised if Naughty Dog tries to keep itself busy in the interim while waiting for its co-president to have enough time to lead development on the next The Last of Us and Uncharted game.
Ultimately, Naughty Dog is still years away from releasing this unannounced fantasy project. At the moment, the first-party PlayStation studio is working on a massive multiplayer game set in The Last of Us universe.
