With The Last of Us and The Last of Remastered being a thriving success for Naughty Dog, any concerns brought by game director Neil Druckmann about the game having a “50/50 possibility of a sequel” were put to rest when The Last of Us Part II was announced to be in early development at the end of the Playstation Experience.
I don’t expect a release date being shown here but I don’t expect to play this game until at least in the spring of 2018. What I do expect is a more detailed cutscene about what has happened in 5 years after the end of the last game. Rumors have been hitting the web based on the trailer that Joel has been killed by the Fireflies and Ellie has been murdering them all while Joel appear as some sort of coping mechanism or hallucination.
I doubt we will get any gameplay footage this early in development but who knows. Sony always brings the hype and I don’t expect to be disappointed in regards to this title.
