Neil Druckmann Interested in Half-Life and Hotline Miami Series’

Neil Druckmann Wants to Make Half-Life and Hotline Miami Games

Co-president of Naughty Dog Neil Druckmann recently took to Twitter to talk about some game series’ that he would love to work on in a perfect world. Druckmann was asked a simple hypothetical question by Kinda Funny’s Greg Miller about what established IP he would be interested in working on, to which he responded with some interesting choices. Neil Druckmann played an important role in the development of Naughty Dog’s recently released The Last of Us Part II which is available exclusively for PS4 and PS5.

“Hypothetical question, Neil Druckmann: what established IP would you want to make a game for?” said Kinda Funny’s Greg Miller in a recent tweet to the Naughty Dog co-president. Neil Druckmann responded with, “1) Punisher 2) Half-Life 3) Ghost Rider 4) Hotline Miami 5) Cowboy Bebop. Those come to mind…”

While Neil Druckmann is surely working on the next big Naughty Dog project and has his name on franchises such as The Last of Us and Uncharted, he already has his name attached to some of the best games out there. It would be very interesting to see the mind behind Naughty Dog working on a new Half-Life title, or the next Hotline Miami. It looks like Druckmann is a fan of anti-heroes with both of the Marvel characters he wants to focus on falling in the grey area of the morality spectrum. Cowboy Bebop is a popular sci-fi anime that focuses on a group of space travelling bounty hunters akin to The Mandalorian.
