The Last of Us Part 2 job ad hints at PC release

Could PlayStation 4 exclusive The Last of Us Part 2 be coming to PC? It seems entirely possible.

A new job ad from developer Naughty Dog - as spotted by PC Gamer - has the studio looking for applicants with experience in PC programming, as well as a knowledge of "current GPU architectures," including AMD and Nvidia's. The PS4 has AMD tech under the hood, making it curious Naughty Dog is after folks with Nvidia experience. 

This seems a little odd for a Sony Interactive Entertainment first-party studio. Whether the post-apocalyptic narrative-driven title will come to platforms outside PlayStation 4 is unclear but the explicit mentioning of PC experience and tech knowledge does suggest it's likely.

Either that or Naughty Dog is looking for people to work on a version for PlayStation 5 which is indeed possible given that 2013's The Last of Us launched on both Sony's third and fourth generation of home console. That's just speculation on our part.

There are also recent rumours that fellow first-party release Horizon: Zero Dawn from the Netherlands' Guerrilla Entertainment is coming to PC. This is more likely given that Kojima Productions' Death Stranding is set to release on the platform this summer via publisher 505 Games. That title uses Guerrilla's Decima engine.
