Naughty Dog's Next Game Potentially Teased In TLOU Part 1

This teaser was first revealed on Twitter by users @IliaAkhavan and @NaughtyNDC. They have uncovered new images inside the game, which look like concept art for a fantasy game. Now, I know that everything in Part 1 is new, compared to the original, and that this could be random. But this is actually not the first time these artworks have popped up before.

Similar artwork was spotted in The Last of Us Part 2, and former Concept Artist Aaron Limonock shared very similar fantasy-style artworks before. It is very unlikely that this is just a coincidence. It reads as an intentional move by Naughty Dog, to give fans a little teaser of what they can expect in the future.

Of course, this remains speculation until Naughty Dog officially says something. We have heard rumors of Naughty Dog making a fantasy game before, but those still remain rumors. So take it with a grain of salt for now, even if it seems suspicious that we keep seeing these hints. A PlayStation Showcase will very like be held soon, maybe we will see a first announcement by Naughty Dog there.
