Naughty Dog is preparing for the great premiere of the first part of The Last of Us, next year we should play The Last of Us Frakcje, but it seems most likely that these are not the only projects currently under development – in such conditions, one of the experienced specialists decided Leave the studio.
After 21 years, 6 months, and 10 games released, Josh Scherr has left the ranks of Naughty Dog. The developer worked, among other things, as the cinema’s main animator, screenwriter for Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, as well as a story writer and narrative designer on The Last of Us Part II.
Cher said goodbye to his teammates and at the same time completed his profile on Linkedin, where he confirmed that he had already joined the new team. However, when analyzing his career path, one can find an important indication – the developer has been developing an unannounced game in Naughty Dog for more than two years.
Script / Narrative Designer – Unreleased Game

The above information may raise the expectations of enthusiasts of the activities of the US PlayStation studio, because it clearly indicates that For several dozen months, work has been underway on a new project at Naughty Dog, which has yet to be revealed.
Given that Josh Sher was working on Uncharted 4… maybe he was the one who helped develop Uncharted 5? Rumor has it that the developers have not given up on IP and are creating the next part of production.
Of course, we’ll still have to wait for confirmation, but we can safely assume that Naughty Dog has been developing another title for a long time, which (apart from The Last of Us update) might be the first game developed from starting with PS5 in mind.
