'50/50' chance for Last of Us sequel, Naughty Dog says

However, many fans also enjoy how complete the narrative felt--and wouldn't want to cheapen the experience by turning it into a franchise.

"If you're asking about a sequel... right now I'd say it's 50/50," Druckmann said.

The Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences held its 17th annual D.I.C.E. (Design, Innovate, Communicate, Entertain) awards last night, and as you might expect, The Last of Us ran away with it.
