A recent tweet advertising a lot of job openings at famed PlayStation Studio Naughty Dog has alluded that the developer might be working on three projects. The tweet, posted by Naughty Dog’s Neil Druckman says “come join us and work on *something*, *something* and *something*.”
We’re growing! Come join us and work on 🤫, 🤐, and 🤭! https://t.co/rKL3u4iZaq

The tweet includes an image with a list of the job opening that the Uncharted and The Last of Us developers are looking to fill.
What projects are Naughty Dog working on?
Although there hasn’t been any official announcement on what new projects Naughty Dog is working on, and it seems they are keeping this close to their chest, there have been a few rumours.
It is possible that the studio is working on The Last of Us Part 2 factions, a multiplayer component to The Last of us Part 2. factions was also the multiplayer portion of the first The Last of Us game and fans are hoping it will make a return. It has been rumoured that The Last of Us 2 Factions could be a standalone product.
From the job opening posted by Niel Druckman, there is no doubt that Naughty Dog is working on some kind of multiplayer component. The job listing advertises for multiplayer level designers and system and technical designers as well as multiplayer animation programmers.
It has also been rumoured that Naughty Dog is working on a remake of the first The Last of Us game. The first game launched on PS3 back in 2013. I really hope they aren’t working on a The Last of Us Remake, as it seems pointless to be honest. It already got a remaster on PS4 and therefore is playable via backwards compatibility on PS5.
Beyond the possible The Last of Us 2 multiplayer and a remake of The Last of Us, it is unclear what else Naughty Dog could be working on.
