In the interview, the composer mentions that work on the Last of Us Part II is aimed to be finished by 2019, though no actual release frame was provided.
Neither Sony nor Naughty Dog has confirmed the game’s release date at this point. Development on the game began in 2014, but wasn’t officially confirmed by Naughty Dog until 2016. Motion capturing for the title commenced earlier this year.
Set 5 years after the events of the original Last of Us, the game serves as a sequel in which players take control of Ellie.
