Wow that was quick. Not what the OP was asking.

OP was wondering what’s next for ND. That sounds like a open ended question. I said after they launch the LOU2 remaster with MP they will explore a new IP. Don’t see how that was off topic. 

I guess that was a bit harsh. I thought it was pretty clear from the OP he was referring to what is ND's big release is going to be. Apologies, didn't mean to come across as abrasive :P

On topic I don't think I want another Jak and Daxter and I think ND are over that. If anything they can pass that to a smaller studio.

I hope something with a good story. TLOU2 really did not do it for me.
Uncharted could go on without them. I'd like to see Uncharted - Cutting loose revolcing around Cutter.
I hope it is not a FPS or anything first person really, don't like that perspective.
A party based rpg would be very welcome, but is probably a pipe-dream.
Something high concept science fiction would be cool as well. Perhapy 2, or 3 smaller games, 30 € each, 10 hours playtime, quicker development. With this a botched story would not hurt as much, since the next one is in the horizon already.

Yeah TLOU 2 went way too dark and in the deep end. We don't need another game like that any time soon. It needs to be more light-hearted game.

I wouldn't mind if they had a go at Sci-fi with RPG elements. If it was something akin to a Mass Effect I wouldn't complain. Like, at all.

Best case scenario for me, a sci fi , space game, third person with rpg elements, i can imagine the amazing creatures ,aliens naughty dog can create and animate.



 

Probably something really mediocre that will be entirely overrated



Nothing to see here, move along

Like all the games you praise?

Everything they release is gold, and my favorite games outside of Nintendo made games. I hope they do upgrade both Uncharted 4 and TLOU2 free for the PS5. After that I'm down for anything give me a new ip, give me another Uncharted with Sully or Cutter, give me TLOU 3. Whatever they make I'm sure I will be buying it!



They should make a sci-fi



Bite my shiny metal cockpit!

Hopefully a new IP. Uncharted is wrapped up, they could have left it alone at 3 TBH. Let it end on the positive note it did.

If they make a LoU3, they need to make an all new cast where we see other events in the same world. Joel and Ellie's stories were done with the first game, so they shouldn't have tried to drag it out. That world has a lot of potential, but it is time to move on from the Ellie IMO.

Well we all know they gonna release a next gen remaster with the cut multiplayer as a reason to jump into the PS5 version. Probably holiday 2021. After that, probably a new Ip. They tend to do that (I don’t see them going back to say Jak)

This is the most likely scenario imo.

And for those who think ND will take too much time to announce their new project(s), all we have to do is paying attention to ND strategy in the past two generations: the original UC was released in less than a year after PS3 was launched. UC4 was annonced on the very day PS4 was launched and was released in 2016, about two years after. I expect ND to show their new projects at anytime in 2021, and the release date could be in late 2022.
