Last Of Us 2 News
— Neil Druckmann (@Neil_Druckmann) December 7, 2016
Ellie has grown up by the time The Last Of Us 2 takes place, and designers from Naughty Dog have been releasing sneak picks of her tattoos, and they look awesome!
Again it has been confirmed that The Last Of Us 2 will be a PS4 exclusive meaning Xbox and PC owners need a PS4 to play it.
Druckmann from Naughty Dog also confirmed that The Last Of Us 2 has been in development for a few years after saying in an interview that he shared his ideas for the game with the actress that plays Ellie in the first installment and that was way back in 2014. He said “So as we walked through the whole story of Left Behind, Ashley’s crying at the end…Then I’m like, ‘I have one more story I want to pitch, and I walked her through the story of Part II, and she’s bawling by the end of it.” And from what he is saying we get a sense that we should be ready for some heartbreaking deaths.
As of the end of December Neil Druckmann said that “50-60% of the game is completed”.

Last Of Us 2 Rumours
- Despite the majority of publications predicting that The Last Of Us 2 is likely to be released near the end of 2018, there are still rumours that the game may be released in 2019
- There have been reports that Joel may not be a playable character
- The Last Of Us 2 might be set in Seattle
- There are rumors that The Last Of Us 2 is likely to continue delving into Ellie’s sexuality with many people saying that Ellie is a lesbian after the release of the Left Behind DLC
- From the teaser trailer, there is a sense of some kind of cult, which may be one of Ellie and Joel’s enemies or/and feature a character from the group that ends up joining them on their adventure
We will keep adding any more rumors that we come across.
Last Of Us 2 Story
Naughty Dog has not been giving anything away, all we know so far is that both Ellie and Joel are on the adventure together and Ellie has aged now to a young woman and Joel is likely now starting to reach old age which may now change the dynamics where Joel is now the more vulnerable of the pair. Naughty Dog however has confirmed that Ellie will be the lead character of the game and that it will take five years after the first game.
We also have an interesting quote from Neil Druckmann who is part of the Naughty Dog team “If the first game, the theme was the love between these two characters… This story’s the counter of that, it’s about hate.”. This may be hinting to some kind of conflict between Ellie and Joel after the fiascos near the end of the first Last of Us game.
Finally, there has been some new characters introduced in the Teaser Trailer that was released on the 30th of October 2017. This is all we have for the story right now but we will keep you updated.
