The Last of Us Part II is the most ambitious game ever developed by Naughty Dog, according to one of the game's voice actors.
Speaking with Pushsquare, Troy Baker, who voices Joel in the original game as well, stated that The Last of Us Part II is the most ambitious Naughty Dog game ever. He also added that the game is much bigger than he anticipated.
I can tell you this: it’s hands down the most ambitious game that Naughty Dog has ever done for sure. It’s far larger than I thought was going to be possible.
Troy Baker also talked about The Last of Us Part II release date, which is rumored to be in February. He confirmed he doesn't know anything about the matter, and he feels that leaving voice actors in the dark is a good thing to prevent leaks.
I think they’ve probably been smart not to tell us because we can’t slip up and say something stupid. Last time we announced, we slipped. And they don’t want to do that again. We are still cranking on it, I can tell you that much. Where it’s at in development, I have no idea. Everybody feels like it’s broken until it’s shipping, and then when it’s shipping they’re like, ‘We shipped a broken game!’ And that’s the gig of making a game.
In The Last of Us Part II, players will control Ellie as she is thrust into a journey of retribution.
From the way Ellie plays to the way she navigates through this hostile world, you’re going to feel her physical, emotional, and mental state expressed through every facet of gameplay. We’ve completely overhauled our engine, developed new combat mechanics, created a new analog stealth system, and revamped our animation system to fully express Ellie’s desperation, resourcefulness, and unique agility.
The Last of Us Part II launches on a yet to be confirmed release date on PlayStation 4. We will keep you updated on the game as soon as more come in on it, so stay tuned for all the latest news.
