The game engine behind Naughty Dog's The Last of Us and Uncharted series will power the studio's next-generation games. Game director Bruce Straley told Digital Spy that the existing development framework will help Naughty Dog avoid the struggles of creating an entirely new engine. At the beginning of this generation, Straley says, "We could have started with something there and then built off of it and only changed the pieces and parts as we needed, when we needed," Straley said. Instead, Naughty Dog built a new engine for Uncharted, "And that really caused a lot of turmoil."
