This Naughty Dog project has been eagerly awaited in recent years, where at the end of The Last of Us, Joel admits that he lied to Ellie about Fire Flies and actually there is no cure for all of this. We do not really know what is going to happen. Ellie is no longer 19 years old. Will Ellie meet her mother? Is Joel dead? And a very basic question, when will this game be released?
Neil Druckmann, writer and director of The Last of Us on PSX 2017 Panel, only laughs and says “Everybody dies at some point. Everybody knows there’s stages in The Last of Us that no one is safe, not even Ellie and Joel.”
Announced at The Last of Us II Panel, there are some new characters in The Last of Us II namely Lev, Yara, and Mystery Woman, Lady Hammer, or Woman Gun Show, Neil conceal this last character’s name.
In the next session Neil accidentally leaked a little things about The Last of Us II “…and the first day we started wrestling with these ideas and she already had awesome things….”
“..after the first day Halley goes home and talks to her husband and she’s like, I think I got someone pregnant. And you’ll see what that means.” Is Ellie the person Neil meant?
THE LAST OF US II RELEASE DATE
Neil stated, “Bunch of stuff being worked on, like 50%-60%… I don’t know how far.”
But in an interview with Vorterix (Argentina Radio Station) Gustavo Santaolalla (The Last of Us composer) when asked when this game will be released, he says “It’ll be done in 2019” while laughing. “No I don’t know exactly when it will come out, but a project like this usually takes at least 2 years to make. I’ve been working on it now for about a year, after my last concert on the 28th of October, I’ll be traveling to LA to keep working on the game.”, he added.
So when exactly The Last of Us II will be released? Neil answers, “E3 2018.”
