ARE YOU JUST LIKE — YEAH >> BECAUSE YOU KNOW, THEY’RE PROBABLY HERE STILL AT THIS THING >> YEAH, OBVIOUSLY, UNCHARTED I LOVE THAT TOO YEAH I’M JUST SAYING THIS MADE ME REALLY NERVOUS IS WHAT I’M SAYING ABOUT THIS AND THESE GUYS I LOVE THEM AND STUFF

>> THEY SAY IT’S GOOD TO BE NERVOUS BECAUSE IT’S A SIGN THAT YOU CARE IT’S A SIGN THAT YOU CARE A LOT AND A SIGN THAT IT IOS A QUALITY PRODUCT WHEN YOU GO INTO MAKING A SEQUEL FOR SOMETHING THAT IS BELOVED, YOU’RE ALWAYS GOING TO HAVE PEOPLE THAT JUST WANT TO REPEAT THE FIRST EXPERIENCE BUT THAT’S NOT GROWTH THAT’S NOT CHANGE, THAT’S NOT LIFE >> THERE’S DEFINITELY A FEAR THERE OF — BECAUSE WITH THE FIRST GAME IT’S LIKE PEOPLE LIKE OR DIDN’T LIKE WE MADE A CERTAIN GAME TO OUR TASTE THIS IS THE VISION WE HAD FOR IT AND YOU ACCEPTED IT BUT THE SECOND GAME, WHAT’S HARD FOR ME AND I KNOW OTHER PEOPLE ON THE TEAM HAVE THIS ISSUE WE’RE AGAIN MAKING SOMETHING WE REALLY BELIEVE IN THERE’S A FEAR AND CHALLENGE THERE LIKE WE’RE TRYING TO DO SOMETHING THAT’S REALLY CHALLENGING THAT’S FAR FROM THE — I FEEL LIKE WE’RE DOING SOMETHING INNOVATIVE AND THE WAY WE TELL THE STORY WE WON’T BE ABLE TO TALK ABOUT IT UNTIL THE GAME IS OUT >> RIGHT? >> BUT YOU JUST HAVE TO LEAN INTO THAT FEAR AND JUST SAY WE’RE DOING SOMETHING WE BELIEVE IN AND THE HARD THING THAT I WAS GETTING TO IS THERE’S GOING TO BE FANS OF THE FIRST GAME THAT AREN’T GOING TO LIKE THE SECOND GAME AND THAT WE HAVE TO BE OKAY WITH THAT THERE’S GOING TO BE PEOPLE THAT NEVER PLAYED THE FIRST GAME ARE GOING TO LOVE THE SECOND GAME ALL WE HAVE TO DO IS — ALL WE CAN DO IS BE TRUE TO TRUE TO OURSELVES AND KEEP MAKING WHAT WE BELIEVE IN >> THAT’S ABSOLUTELY >> THAT HAS ALWAYS WORKED FOR NAUGHTY DOG AND ALWAYS BEEN HOW WE MAKE GAMES AND WE WILL CONTINUE TO MAKE SINGLE LAYER LINEAR — [ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE. ] >> OH, MY GOD >> SOMEBODY GIVE THAT BOY A MIC TO DROP >> GIVE THAT MAN A MIC TO DROP WHAT ABOUT PART 3?

LOVE THEM? HATE THEM? MANY SO YOU GUYS ARE SIBLINGS, YOU’VE GROWN UP IN THIS WORLD, I ASSUME I THINK THEIR AGE IS UN DETERMINED CAN YOU TELL US HOW OLD THEY ARE >> YARA IS 16 AND LEV IS 13 >> OH, THAT’S SO SWEET DO YOU GUYS LOVE BEING IN THAT C ULT OR WHATEVER? LET’S TALK ABOUT YOUR WORK AS AN ARTIST DO YOU LOVE CULTS? >> THAT DEPENDS WHICH CULT >> DEPENDS, RIGHT? TRULY, NO WHAT DO YOU FEEL LIKE IS SOMETHING THAT YOU HAVE TAKEN AWAY FROM WORKING WITH THIS CHARACTER? IS THERE A SENSE — KIND OF LIKE WE WERE TALKING ABOUT ASHLEY WITH ELLIE, IS THERE A SENSE OF ATTACHMENT, DEVELOPMENT THERE?
