The Last of Us Part II

Neil Druckmann's Avatar Posted by on Dec 03, 2016 // Creative Director, Naughty Dog

Let’s cut to the chase: the sequel to The Last of Us is happening, and it’s called The Last of Us Part II.

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.

It’s still early days for the project—the game’s release is a ways off—but we couldn’t wait any longer to give you a glimpse of what’s to come. We’re going to let the trailer speak for itself, but expect more information about The Last of Us Part II in the coming months.

The Last of Us Part II, 02

In the meantime, if you’re at PlayStation Experience today or watching the livestream from home, don’t miss our panel at 2:00pm PT where I’ll be joined by Ashley Johnson and Troy Baker to talk about the reveal. Keep an eye on Naughty Dog’s channels to see more of what we’re up to this weekend.

Until next time, endure and survive!

Part of me thinks this might be a huge mistake… the other part was starting to tear up from excitement of just watching the trailer.

    Me too! The first was just so awesome and all those emotions flooded my heart when I saw the preview for the sequel!

    I pray that the story is bad ass with the same element of surprise and emotion as the first, if not then even more!

There is absolutely no need for this. The original game was perfect on it’s own, and the ending was open for interpretation. TLOU2 shouldn’t exist unless it involves around an entirely new cast of characters and setting. I really hope this sequel doesn’t tarnish the orignal. I love Naughty Dog and I trust them to do a good job, but some things are best kept as is.


     

    + singulino on December 3rd, 2016 at 11:58 am said:

    I’d be with you, I loved the end and the whole was perfect. But I think Ellie & Joel have yet a really good story to be told, and I hope Naughty Dog found it.


     

    + mjc0961 on December 3rd, 2016 at 7:22 pm said:

    How can it tarnish the original? The original is still there. It can still be enjoyed as is. You can just ignore the rest of the stuff after it if you don’t like it.


     

    + internisus on December 3rd, 2016 at 8:27 pm said:

    How can it *not* tarnish the original? The ending’s ambiguity was gone the moment this trailer appeared.


     

    + Welmosca on December 3rd, 2016 at 9:13 pm said:

    Yes well said.I too think a sequel is not necessary but after the huge success that was the 1st one even if it had an end,one would be crazy to think Sony would not do a sequel.

    I for one am really curious to see how they’ll keep on with the story…if they decided to do a prequel like the time when Joel and Tommy survived together and how they split,it would be cool and actually awesome.But I really dont see how they’ll continue the story.

Thank you ND team.
I’m sold on it.

This is madness! I’m so happy about that. I trust you to make a great game!

I thought I would skip PS4 and become mostly a PC gamer, but I’m very confuse now… :| :P


     

    + mjc0961 on December 3rd, 2016 at 7:23 pm said:

    It’s actually simple. You skip PS4 for everything except the exclusive games. That’s what I’m doing as of late.

+ kratos1984 on December 3rd, 2016 at 12:13 pm said:

Can’t wait! Love the first one so much. Hands down, Naughty Dog is one of the top developers today. One hope I have is Naughty Dog adding the same accessibility options they put in Uncharted 4. I have a disability and the options in Uncharted 4 was very much appreciated.

Glad they’re making a sequel with the same characters! I felt their story was not over yet.

Naughty Dog, simply put, run this industry.
What a trailer.


27

+ Kid_Grim on December 3rd, 2016 at 12:48 pm said:

Obviously this is a day one buy. I fell in love with the story in the first one, it even brought out a few tears, so no doubt this one will be just as epic.


28

+ Sponge-worthy on December 3rd, 2016 at 12:59 pm said:

I’m actually a little surprised that we’re sticking with Joel and Ellie for Part 2. But I’ll allow it :)


     

    + mjc0961 on December 3rd, 2016 at 7:24 pm said:

    Oh you will? Thanks. We were worried you’d cancel the game since you have so much authority over what Naughty Dog can and can’t do.

Don’t get me wrong super excited about this,but what about a prequel.

I’d be interested in seeing what Joel and his brother were up to in the 20 years before the events of The Last of US.

+ xGOTBEEEEEEFx on December 3rd, 2016 at 2:24 pm said:

Thank God! I think I know where the story is going. Hopefully it will include Ellies mother, who like Ellie is immune.

Make us proud Neil and Bruce we believe in you

+ Phreaky on December 3rd, 2016 at 4:21 pm said:

I always though a pseudo-prequel called ‘The First of Them’ focused on the origin story would be fascinating.

But I’ll take a sequel any day of the week with ND at the helm.

I just hope they don’t change it too much

I think Joel is dead. The body on the floor is his. Ellie is singing about her and his time together. Then in walks Joels ghost. He asks her if she will get on with it. He means avenging his death. She says she will kill all of them(for it). Throughout the game you will see Joel’s spirit helping her fight and such. In reality she will be the one doing everything, Joel won’t actually be there.
The kicker is you won’t actually find out that he is in fact dead until the end, ALA sixth sense. I’m willing to bet that’s exactly what it is. It will suck if it is.


     

    + Welmosca on December 3rd, 2016 at 9:21 pm said:

    Hoou…nice theory,that would be quite the plot twist.

    The trailer actually gave an impression that she’s alone though so your theory might not be that far from the truth.
