The Last of Us Part II Announced at PSX 2016
The Last of Us Part II is happening. The sequel to the 2013 Game of the Year was announced right at the end of Sony’s PlayStation Experience 2016 keynote, showcasing a grown up Ellie as well as Joel.
You can check out the gorgeous reveal trailer below. Afterward, Director Neil Druckmann wrote on the PlayStation Blog:
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.
It’s still early days for the project–the game’s release is a ways off–but we couldn’t wait any longer to give you a glimpse of what’s to come. We’re going to let the trailer speak for itself, but expect more information about The Last of Us Part II in the coming months.
In the meantime, if you’re at PSX today or watching the live stream from home, don’t miss our panel at 2:00pm PT where I’ll be joined by Ashley Johnson and Troy Baker to talk about the reveal. Keep an eye on Naughty Dog’s channels to see more of what we’re up to this weekend at PSX.
Stay tuned on Wccftech to get all the latest rumors and news on The Last of Us Part II in the months and years leading up to its release on PlayStation 4. By the way, Naughty Dog also revealed Uncharted: The Lost Legacy at PSX 2016.
