Naughty Dog reportedly lays off contract workers as troubled The Last of Us spinoff shooter faces an uncertain future

A Kotaku report says Naughty Dog, the developer of The Last of Us and Uncharted games, is the latest studio to lay off employees, with at least 25 contract workers being told that they’ll be let go at the end of October. The report also says that The Last of Us multiplayer shooter spinoff announced in 2022 is in trouble, and while it hasn’t been cancelled at this point, its fate remains uncertain.

The layoffs were revealed to employees last week, according to the report, and impacted multiple departments but were focused primarily on quality assurance. No severance pay is being offered, possibly because the employees being terminated were on contract rather than full-time; no full-time employees were impacted by the cuts.
