Sony today announced The Last of Us Part Two game at PlayStation Experience event. The anticipated sequel is the second big announcement from developer Naughty Dog today, after Uncharted: The Lost Legacy.
The Last of Us Part Two will continue after the events of the original game. Sony also released the trailer of The Last of Us Part Two. Sony did not mention any release date or other details about the game. Naughty Dog’s announcement tweet also contained only the logo image above. Sony’s Shawn Layden noted that The Last of Us Part Two game is early in development and is running on an updated version of the studio’s engine.
Creative director Neil Druckmann said in a PlayStation Blog post, “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.”
