Sony really came out of nowhere with its announcement of a new exclusive title for the PlayStation family. It was much unexpected when a trailer from Naughty Dog was shown for new IP called Last of Us. While we know that it will be a PlayStation 3 release to start with, no date was announced as to when it was being targeted.
The game itself looks to be a survival action type of title that is taking place in a world decimated by some sort of biological plague. Being a Naughty Dog title, the look and feel seems to have many elements from the Uncharted series with a different story, but the trailer was compelling.
The title has been in development for some time. The game is being headed by a team run by Bruce Stanley and Neil Drukmann. It is also the first time that Naughty Dog has had a second IP offering during the same hardware generation.
