Naughty Dog Holiday Card, 2014

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.

To celebrate the season, here’s our studio holiday card for this year.

Pretty fantastic, huh? This sweater, designed by our very own Alexandria Neonakis, will be available in physical form at some point in the near future. It might be perfect for a Christmas in July situation or perhaps a holiday 2015 addition to our ND Shop. Let us know if you’d buy one in the comments and we’ll see when we can make it appear on the shop.

December has been a joyous month for us as we revealed fifteen minutes of gameplay from our next project, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, and talked about re-designing Nathan Drake for the PS4at the first ever PlayStation Experience. This reveal was truly the icing on our thirty year cake.

As a special holiday treat we’re making our full length 30th anniversary video, which we screened for the first time at PlayStation Experience, available for free. Watch it now:


Happy Holidays from Naughty Dog: 30th Anniversary Video

While we had many cool things happen when we turned thirty, we have much more to share with you. First off, we’ll be rolling out a timeline of our history in the coming months. Additionally, we have some cool surprises with Penny Arcade coming that will expand our Pinny collection with them. Obviously, we’ll be talking more about Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End over the next year as well. Thirty was pretty great, but thirty-one is going to be even better. Get ready for an incredible 2015!

  • Naughty dog are horrible devs.

  • Gimme that sweater

  • Do you guys know if TLOU will be in week 4 of the holiday sales? I’ve been meaning to pick it up and finish it on PS4.

  • BrushYourTeeth

    I’m already itching for that sweater. It’s always cold here in Wisconsin so I could probably use it no matter when you get it on the ND store. Thanks for all the great work and look forward to 30 more years…seriously, 30 more or else ;)

    I’d buy that sweater! Congrats on a great year ND and Happy Holidays to you! I hope by this time next year I’ll be playing my most anticipated game of 2015, Uncharted 4!

  • I’d so buy that sweater btw :)

  • That was an absolutely amazing video. Thank you Naughty Dog and keep topping yourselves. Uncharted 4 will stun us like Uncharted 2 did. Happy holidays!

    Happy Holidays Naughty Dogs . I’m sorry I didn’t watch you guy on stage at the PlayStation Experience but I was focusing my surroundings with future titles . I could’ve listen to what Nolan North and the crew had to say about the upcoming Uncharted 4 . I’ll buy it anyway because I have all Uncharted games.

  • I purchased my PS3 in the beginning of 2013, and was immediately recommended several games to play by a friend. The “Uncharted” series was on the top of the list, and I played them back-to-back, I was blown away. Then came “The Last of Us” and I jumped on that pre-order, it pulled on my heart-strings. Since then, I have purchased and played many games on both PS3 and PS4 (double-dipped on “The Last of Us”), and only a very few amount of games can come close to the feelings, the thrill, and shocks that come from the minds of your development team. Thank you.

      Thank you for sharing that and all the goodwill. Have the best holiday season!

  • oo7PorscheMGS

    Oh, and if Crash comes to vita..ill buy one ;) I know you dont own the franchise, but ask Santa to give it back to you please. Also, please support last of us online with a hardcore (no radar/perk) mode, purty please.

  • oo7PorscheMGS

    Oh and I wont look good in that sweater but I’ll dang sure buy it, lol. Anything with your great characters/art on it! Happy holidays and crazy Ottsels.

  • B-RadGfromOV

    Great video, watched it til the end. Been playing with you guys for 15 years and counting, and have loved every bit of work you’ve done. Congratulations on all your success, and thank you so much for all of your hard work, passion and dedication. Without a doubt you all compose the most talented team to ever grace gaming. Love you Naughty Dog! LOVE.

      That’s super kind of you and thank you for all the years of support.

  • Merry Xmas!

    I wrote in TLoU Remastered for the PS4 game of the year.

    and if you release a GOTY Deluxe Limited Collector’s Edition next year, I’ll buy that too and vote for it too.

    TLoU is so good it makes every other game a coaster, I need nothing else. It’s the perfect game.

    Naughty Dog, thank you for being awesome and have a great new year.

    P.S. Some new DLC maps for the game, plzplzplz :)

  • I can say anything but THANK YOU guys! One of the reasons why I love Playstation is because of your whole team.
    Seriously, thanks for everything.

    A proud Sony user and Gran Turismo fan.

  • ossiecastro5

    Congrats on a successful and memorable year Naughty Dog. Best wishes for next year and good luck with Uncharted 4!

  • Happy Holidays Naughty Dog!! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: you guys are the BEST this industry has EVER seen! And your Uncharted series is the greatest video game franchise of all-time and Nathan Drake is the greatest fictional character in ANY medium of all-time! I truly hope Uncharted 4 is not the final entry to this franchise and to a slightly lesser extent, I hope The Last Of Us isn’t one-and-done. Perfect characters and perfect storytelling in The Last Of Us but Uncharted is simply unbeatable ;) Uncharted 4 is my most anticipated game by a LANDSLIDE (sorry Star Wars: Battlefront. Definitely number two) and you can count on my support on day one ;) LOVE YOU NAUGHTY DOG!!

  • Happy Holidays to you Naughty Dog! Please consider an Uncharted trilogy PS4 remaster!

  • Crazymanwalking1

    As much as i love Naughty Dog as developers i wouldn’t buy that sweater as i had a bad experience with the ND Shop and will never be buying anything from it again (i got sent the wrong size but they wont exchange it)

  • millertime82

    I want the sweater now! And thank you naughty dog for all your amazing games. I’ve had more fun, more oh my god moments with naughty dog titles than any other developer out there. And thanks for always making sure your games rock. Hope you stay around for many years to come. Happy 30th and happy holidays!

  • Keep that sweater, give me some downloadable content for The Last of Us.

  • I managed to get my friend to switch from xbone to PS4 purely on the fact that The Last Of Us and the Uncharted series are Sony exclusives. Thank you for the amazing games; as for me it has only be 8 years, starting with Crash Bandicoot. Much love

  • The Playstation big 3. Sucker Punch(Sly), Insomniac(Spyro), and Naughty Dog(Crash). You guys really made my childhood. Happy 30th. Enjoying The Last of Us Remastered and looking forward to Uncharted 4 (and whatever that 2nd team is working on).

  • Alot of people moved from XBOX360 to PlayStation 4. I want to thank you for giving me the oportunity to play The Last of Us Remastered. I have spent 1 month on that game and I have a Platinum trophy. The only other comparable enjoyment I have had in the last 1 year of my gaming was with Infamous Second Son. Not that I didn’t enjoyed my other PS4 games, i did but nothing compares to TLOU Remastered or Infamous SS.

    I have NEVER PLAYED UNCHARTED except for the Golden Abyss on Vita. I am not a mobile gamer but i got the Vita on sweet deal and it also have great games. Vita is so weak compared to the PS4 graphics and yet Uncharted Golden Abyss was an an amazing experience for me, even thought I was playing it in the same month I played TLOU Remastered.

  • YOU NEED TO MAKE AN UNCHARTED Trilogy Remastered for PS4. All 3 PS3 Uncharted games, bring them to PS4. We don’t expect you to put the time and efford you did in TLOU: Remastered. Just run them at 1080p@60fps & that would be more than enough and I will PRE-ORDER them on the day they show on the PSN.

    I can guarantee you alot of people will buy them. PS4 hardware sales are high and it will sell more and more. Many people switched from MS to Sony and many more will switch, so Uncharted Trilogy will sell alot!

    You have Uncharted 4 coming in 2015 and bringing Uncharted Trilogy Remastered for lets say February would give you HUGE boost in Uncharted 4 sales. Uncharted 4 will sell high but it will sell double if people like me also had the chanse of playing Uncharted Trilogy before that.

  • Guys, tell me WHO HERE WANTS AN UNCHARTED TRILOGY HD/Remastered FOR PS4 ?

  • I would definitely enjoy an Uncharted Trilogy Remaster

  • Hey ND Happy Holidays to y’all,been playing your games for 15 years since Crash 1…some fond memories.Every sane gamer knows that you guys are the best devs out there,only Santa Monica can go head-to-head with you guys.Much respect.
    Anyway keep up with the good work I’m betting all ma coins on UC4 really putting all my faith in you guys again,please make it just as good as UC2.

    Best Wishes!!

  • I forgot to mention but DAT sweater….really want one.

    @ 30 DanteAMT – Please dawg STFU…did you bought a PS4 to play PS3 games?….then you should not have bought it….buy a PS3 and go play the UC games instead of asking devs to recycle their games.People like you is what makes next-gen sick.

  • What a lovely sweater. It brings back memories. I hope to buy that sweater soon. Naughty Dog you are the reason why I play games. You are all awesome.
    Happy Holidays!

  • Great video and Merry Christmas Naughty Dog!

  • @35 Welmosca is that the best you can do? An insult ? Thought you do have a point about buying a PS3 !

    To be honest if Naughty Dog says ” WE WILL NEVER REMASTER OLD UNCHARTED SERIES FOR PS4″ I will go ahead and buy a PS3 this very moment and play all 3 Uncharted games.
    But Uncharted deserves a 1080p version for PS4, it is that good. After the first week with my PS4 i realised i can’t stand last gen 720p so I sold my XBOX360 as it now looked like utter cr*p. Uncharted is Uncharted and it will be fun and it will look good even on 720p PS3. But Many people will have the feeling they drove a Ferrari with TLOU R and playing a PS3 is … well Toyota Prius…

    I am not saying make them as good as TLOU Remastered, but do you think their whole team worked on that, do you think they paused the Uncharted 4 while doing TLOU Remasted – hell no. I am sure 80 % or more of the team was working on Uncharted 4. Just get 5-10 people from the team to work on Uncharted Trilogy port/HD/remaster no need even for HD textures just 1080p@60fps – and it will sell millions. To be honest I would even pay a $100 price tag for an Uncharted Trilogy PS4. Put it in a nice collectors edition box – I can see myself even throwing $150.

  • AsiorKrahaAsior

    Please create crash bandicoot for ps4 ? can be old one version for ps4… ☺️

  • Thanks for the great games. :)

  • Awesome video, love your games! I have always been a day 1 customer :)

  • Spiral-INfinity

    First things first when is the sweater going on sale? An how do we get Crash away from Universal and back home to Naughty Dog?

  • LEFT__4__DEAD__2

    Kansha Arigatou :)

  • Thank you so much love love uncharted games so good and realy love last of us and last of us left behind thank you so much intens scene on uncharted 2 when nate wakes up in the wreked train and he has to climb out in the frozen city really cool

  • Ghost_Vulture452

    Thank You Naughty Dog for giving us amazing games to have a wonderful experience on like Uncharted which is my favorite PlayStation exclusive. I really respect and appreciate the hard work you men and women put into these spectacular games keep it up. # I’m looking forward to buying and playing Uncharted 4 which I think will be a GOTY candidate and probably winner !

  • Ghost_Vulture452

    I’m also hoping you guys find a way to remaster the uncharted trilogy and put it on ps4 and maybe toss in uncharted golden abyss, if you can’t I understand, but if you can that’ll be great.
