The Last of Us is back in the headlines, and we couldn't be happier about it. As the HBO series based on the Naughty Dog masterpiece continues to prove that the adaptation was an incredible idea, fans have flocked back to the games to experience it all over again or for the first time.

It's true that the game has always deserved this universal praise, and with Bella Ramsey and Pedro Pascal now steering the hype ship, it feels better than ever to be a fan of the game series. But in the wake of this new hype, don't think it's over just yet.

Fans Think Naughty Dog Is Working On The Last Of Us Part 3

Neil Druckmann has begun to tease that the story for The Last of Us might not be over just yet, hinting in an interview that there is more story to tell - but there hasn't been much proof that the game is in development. Despite this, fans presume a third game is officially coming.

A new picture posted by Halley Gross on her Instagram story has revealed a seemingly recent dinner that brings her, Ashley Johnson, Neil Druckmann, and Shannon Woodward together.

Gamers have taken this to mean that the people pictured were discussing a third game, with the image being adorned with gifs of the Fireflies insignia and a Clicker.

Gross co-wrote The Last of Us Part II, Druckmann was the Game Director, while Johnson and Woodward played Ellie and Dina in the game. We've heard that an outline of Part 3 has been written, but could it already be on the way?

Fans Are Convinced TLOU Part 3 Is Coming

Swathes of "The Last of Us Part 3 confirmed" tweets prove that players are expecting a new game - but it could just be a nice dinner out amongst mates.

HBO's series has seen Druckmann take a trip down memory lane when it comes to the first game, and this could just be him checking in with his friends, but that's not good enough for hyped fans.

Only recently, Druckmann teased the potential of Part 3 but wouldn't confirm it. Whether or not this meeting means anything for The Last of Us Part 3 remains to be seen. Either way, it's nice to see everyone together again.
