New IP?

In The Last of Us Part 1, there may have been a hint at a new IP from Naughty Dog. Some fans have discovered concept art that could belong to a possible new IP. The drawings depict a fantasy world and could be a clue to a new game from Naughty Dog. Currently, there is no further information about this speculative new IP.

No The Last of Us Part 3
