Naughty Dog teases new space game, could Savage Starlight be in the works?
Authored by Rob Newberry
After a recent AMA with Naughty Dog‘s Justin Richmond (Game Director) and Robert Cogburn (Lead Multiplayer Designer), fans seem convinced that the next IP from the Santa Monica development studio could be the long rumoured space-themed Savage Starlight. Without confirming anything, Richmond and Cogburn hinted (or trolled) Redditors with comments like the ones below:
First, we know that some of the Naughty Dog team recently went on a tour of Space X, the space transport company that has previously been involved in transporting cargo to the International Space Station. We also know that Ashley Johnson (voice of Ellie from The Last of Us) was with them on the tour, and her Tumblr page has a TON of space themed posts recently.
We also know that a comic book that Ellie collects in The Last of Us is called “Savage Starlight” – which is what Justin hinted at in his Reddit comment.
So, there’s a few things that seem to lead towards the logical (but highly unconfirmed) conclusion that a space IP is in the works. Or perhaps even Uncharted 4 set in space?
How about it Pixel Nation…any thoughts on where this whole thing might be going?
