The Last of Us Part 3 seems to be under works as Naughty Dog studios are gearing up for the launch of the second entry in the series. It makes sense to start developing the next game in the series at this stage as The Last of Us Part 2 is coming out this month and developers will have plenty of free time in their hands. The game director Niel Druckman recently talked about the Naughty Dog studios possibly working on “The Last of Us Part 3” and fans were quick enough to make assumptions on the third chapter in the series.
One week closer to #TheLastOfUsPartII . We can’t wait for you to experience it in less than a month on June 19. Until then, we hope you enjoy your weekend, get rested (or pull an all-nighter playing games), and take care.
Endure and thrive, friends!

The reason why the makers would develop TLOU 3 is also related to HBO working on The Last of Us TV series and it would attract more viewers and hence gamers to the title. Here is everything you need to know on The Last of Us Part 3 rumors and other details on the third game in the series.
The Last of Us Part 3 in works at Naughty Dog Studios
Niel Druckman teased that Naughty Dog is working on a new project which could be a totally new IP, another Uncharted title, or even The Last of Us Part 3. The vice president and the game director talked about The Last of Part 2 release and how the future of the game studio depends on its response.
If TLOU 2 is a success, Naughty Dog will surely work on “The Last of Us Part 3” immediately after they are done with the sequel. It would be great to have a The Last of Us trilogy as the game series is more popular for its emotional and dark storyline compared to other stuff. The Last of Us 3 will bring the storyline of Ellie and Joel to the conclusion and have an ending to the saga.
The Last of Us Part 3 Release Date and Story Rumors
The Last of Us Part 3 release date would be set around 2025 or later given how it took Naughty Dog around seven years and a lot of delays for the second game. There are rumors that the third game will show the world in a totally new perspective where Ellie will lead the revolution against the cult and bring harmony to the world. It could also be possible that Joel dies heroically trying to save Ellie in The Last of Us Part 3 ending.
