‘The Last of Us 2’ Update: Marlene And Tommy For Lead Roles? Ellie and Joel’s Reappearance? Plus Pre-Production Underway
Naughty Dog seemed to be doing the guessing game tactic for “The Last of Us 2.”

The expectation for “The Last of Us 2” is still really thick and although the team behind hasn’t confirmed whether it’s happening or not, and when fans have really awesome theories that could be proven true. With everything that’s going around, fans are also into Ellie and Joel’s possible return. Would this be possible in the sequel?

According to MoviePilot, if Ellie were given the choice would she have made the decisions like Joel’s? One of the best things about “The Last of Us” is its storyline and its directness. Having Joel and Ellie reappear at the same time in the sequel may upset that balance that the creator of the game has made, but still, there is a possibility that Ellie and Joel will be featured in the sequel.

There are also speculations surrounding “The Last of Us 2” in getting its new lead. Some fans are rooting for a some kind of “prequel,” which will star Marlene. They want to see how it was like in the years straight after the outbreak. It would also be interesting to see more of Joel’s brother Tommy’s life. He was a hero and the way he helped Joel later in the game after saving his brother’s life in the opening moments of the game was just amazing.

During the PAX Aus, Arne Meyer, Naughty Dog Community Strategist was asked about “The Last of Us 2” and he said, “‘The Last of Us 2’ is an idea and one of the ideas that we’ve been working on in pre-production.” He added, “Unfortunately we’ve had to pull the team working on that away to work on ‘Uncharted 4’ when we’re done with this game we’ll go back and look at all the ideas we had. They may result in ‘The Last of Us 2’ or they may not.”

Currently, Naughty Dog is busy promoting ‘Uncharted 4.’ However, let’s keep our fingers crossed that “The Last of Us 2” happens and if it does, there’s a huge possibility that it will be released on 2017. Read here as to why.
