Naughty Dog continue to prove they’re the premiere PlayStation developer, giving gamers the first glimpse of a sequel to 2013’s post-apocalyptic epic The Last Of Us, simply titled The Last Of Us Part 2 at PSX 2016.
Creative Director at the studio, Neil Druckmann took to PlayStation Blog and said the following.
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, it 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.
We’re to expect further information about The Last of Us Part II in the coming months, but for now, I’ll let this absolutely stunning trailer do the talking.
