Information on The Last of Us's first DLC will be revealed soon, Naughty Dog has revealed, before teasing the possibility of a sequel appearing at some point in the future.

Discussing the DLC during a Reddit Ask Me Anything last night, creative director Neil Druckmann confirmed "news is on the way about the first DLC drop" and that fans "should hear about it this month".

It isn't yet known which type of DLC will hit first, however. The developer is creating two multiplayer DLCs and one single-player add-on for May's hit survival-action game - the latter of which Naughty Dog is "currently working on".

Familiar characters will also be making a return in the DLC, Druckmann confirmed.

Game director Bruce Straley added that he felt the DLC is "amazing". "Just wait!" he said. "We're happy with what we've come up with."

As well as discussing the DLC, Druckmann also teased the possibility of a new Last of Us title, revealing that the team is "playing with some ideas, but no direction has been set yet for the next game."

However, he later claimed that he didn't know what Naughty Dog's next game would be.

With Gamescom a little over three weeks away, a Last of Us DLC reveal seems a likely possibility for Sony's show.

Expect more later this month.

Perhaps they could do an 'Uncharted' sequel with a twist. They could actually set in in 'Sir Francis Drakes' time and do a two player coop for offline with plenty of puzzles to solve? It would be nice to hear in a video game an accent that isn't always the same no?

I would love to play Ish's story in the DLC.

I don't think I want a sequel, at least not with the same characters. Maybe someone else's struggles? But I'm not sure how they could make it any different in terms of gameplay without resorting to cliched, ridiculous enemies like Matt commented on the TLoU podcast (spitters,wall-climbing enemies, etc..).

It's because I love this game so much that I don't want its magic tarnished with a cash-in sequel. I'd rather have ND focused on a different game, something new and unexpected.

Oh please god yes do a sequel on PS4. So it can finally look as good as it deserves.
Also it shouldn't be hard to put in some new material after that ending.
