The Last of Us Part 2 Has Been Announced
Today during Sony's PlayStation Experience 2016, The Last of Us Part 2 was officially announced.
This follow-up to 2013's game of the year features an older Ellie killing it on guitar while Joel makes an appearance. After a short exchange of words, Ellie seems pissed. Check out the trailer below.
Neil Druckmann, creative director at Naughty Dog, has posted the following on the PlayStation Blog regarding the announcement of the game:
I can’t tell you how satisfying it is to finally be able to say that Ellie and Joel are back for another intense, harrowing, and emotional adventure. Like many of you, we have a deep love for the world of The Last of Us and its characters, and while a sequel may have seemed like a foregone conclusion, that wasn’t the case. We knew that it needed to be a story worth telling and, perhaps more importantly, a story worthy of Joel and Ellie. After spending years on different ideas (and almost giving up), we finally uncovered a story that felt special—a story that evolved into an epic journey.
The Last of Us Part 2 is in the early stages of development, so don't expect to see the game anytime soon.
