The Last of Us 2 sporting RPG features could potentially hurt Naughty Dog’s reputation of releasing games that come with excellent cinematic experiences.
After the release of the trailer of Unchartered 4, speculations and rumours have been widespread that the game developer might include role playing game (RPG) features for the sequel of The Last of Us.
Although the RPG feature would surely give users a new gaming experience, some were quite concerned about the consequences if the company chooses to insert it.
According to Kenny McDonnell of Moviepilot, an RPG in The Last of Us 2 might seriously harm Naughty Dog’s reputation.
He stated that Naughty Dog have become masters at bringing excellent cinematic experiences. Enabling us to impact on that could destroy the reputation they’ve built.
With an RPG feature in The Last of Us 2, it would supply players with various options on what to do in specific conversations and situations, subsequently altering the outcome of a situation and the effect of the entire story.
Furthermore, there could be more than two alternate endings in The Last of Us 2 if it is launched with an RPG feature. This made some gamers quite uncomfortable about the idea of including RPG in The Last of Us 2.
Still, it all depends on the fans and if they would purchase an RPG version of The Last of Us 2. Time will tell how the game will do in terms of profits and reviews.
And if it manages to achieve good reviews and huge sales, it will be an addition to the company’s present reputation: They could also release awesome RPG games.
However, one question remains: Will Naughty Dog launch the sequel? At present, Naughty Dog has been quiet about its latest development.
Game developers Bruce Straley and Neil Druckmann stated that it has a 50/50 chance.
Let’s hope that Naughty Dog gives an announcement about The Last of Us 2 after the release of Unchartered 4.
