Details about the highly anticipated “The Last Of Us 2” may be scarce but video games fans are convinced that the sequel is happening. When voice actor Nolan North confirmed that Naughty Dog is working on “The Last of Us 2,” the internet just exploded.

At the recent MetroCon Q&A panel, North shared that “Uncharted 4” may be the last time that he will work with Naughty Dog. At least for the time being. He, however, dropped the bomb that the game developers are working on “The Last of Us” sequel.

Movie Pilot pointed out that Joel and Ellie’s story ended on a perfect note, which is why the second installment should focus on other supporting characters. The publication stated that the game should have completely new characters as well as an entirely different world to explore.

One problem with this, however, is that the fans have grown attached to Joel and Ellie that introducing new characters may not be that appealing. Because of this, the publication suggested that “The Last of Us 2” focus on Ellie’s life after Joel.

“Ellie is all on her own, fighting for her survival. The game could feature many emotional scenes of Ellie remembering Joel,” it said.

Meanwhile, a discussion on the possible plot and gameplay for the sequel already started on Reddit. User “Endure and Survive” said that although “The Last Of Us 2” is not 100 percent confirmed, he would not be shocked if Naughty Dog decided to release a new game. He pointed out that North has already “spilled the beans on its existence.”

There you have it on the latest news about “The Last of Us 2.” Do you think the game should still focus on Joel and Ellie’s story? Or perhaps they should introduce new characters? Sound off in the comments below.
