The Last of Us is without a doubt one of the most successful survival games made. This is why people went crazy when news about The Last of Us 2 arrived.
Apparently, creative director Neil Druckmann said they already developed prototypes for the sequel! There is no delay, but secret development.
According to Druckmann via SCPR, Naughty Dog, and the team had to prioritize some teased downloadable content for Uncharted 4.
Either way, rumors also suggest the game having a 2021 release. Sources also said developers will move on with the development of the sequel in 2018, and that it will come with announcements.
Fans of The Last of Us are expecting a newer, more explosive sequel. They were hoping Naughty Dog will show off the sequel at least in the E3. However, while there are no announcements, the clamor for a sequel is inevitable given the first game’s success.
Neil Druckmann also guaranteed the new game will have a new story and perhaps older characters. An LGBT lead will also be one of the lead characters.
The development team also teased new twists and turns, and maybe a darker ending, for the storyline. Hopefully, this will also put into conclusion the rather confusing (and controversial) ending of the first game.
The Last of Us has reached critical acclaim due to its new approach to narrative and its very emotional storyline. The game talks about Ellie and Joel, and their journey across the plague-ridden United States.
The game also started the popularity of so-called “dad games,” where one of the lead characters will be in charge of the development and growth of the other.
The Last of Us 2 is a continuation of this cycle, but this time, Ellie may have all grown up, and teases that Joel may not have probably made it.
