We’re running a livestream for Operation Supply Drop’s 8-Bit Salute again this year. We’re not celebrating our 31st anniversary or anything like that. Why do it again? Well, we get a lot of fan mail. Few have meant more than an amazing email we received from Jeff Bullock, an Iraqi war vet. Head over to the Naughty Dog blog to read it in full. It’s the inspiration for year two of this event.
Happy holidays, everyone! 2014 was a big year for us. We turned thirty years old, launched The Last of Us Remastered to widespread acclaim, opened a shop, had a couple art shows, and revealed gameplay from our next project, just to name some highlights.
If you were fortunate enough to attend the PlayStation Experience this past weekend, you may have played The Last of Us Remastered with some of our brand new Factions mode add-ons. Or maybe you attended the panel with our multiplayer team and learned about how this was developed. If you participated in our tournament in Vegas, you might be downloading this new content for free today.
Though Naughty Dog is celebrating its 30th anniversary, we’re also excited to have been along on PlayStation’s twenty year ride that they’re celebrating this year. In fact it was developing for PSone that had Naughty Dog hire its first employees — for the first ten years it was just our co-founders Jason and Andy doing all of the art, programming, and design themselves. Oh, how times have changed!
We’re kicking off a new franchise in our collectible line on the official Naughty Dog Shop this week. We previously revealed our PlayStation Collectibles Clicker Bust and now we’re going back in time a few years with the 30th Anniversary Jak and Daxter Precursor Orb.
