The Last of Us 2 remains to be a big mystery to fans of the 2013 instant classic. Naughty Dog hasn?t actually confirmed that the sequel is in the works yet, but there are a lot of signs pointing to its development. Fans don?t know much about the title, but what they do know is that they want Joel and Ellie back.
During the entire duration of the first title, we?ve seen Joel as an old man already. However, he?s still a force to be reckoned with. We can probably see Joel in the sequel, but he may not be the same as before. Ellie, meanwhile, was a fiery youth in the first game, so fans are expecting her to appear in The Last of Us 2.
Ellie?s voice actress, Ashley Johnson, spoke to GameSpot recently about her interest in the sequel. “I feel like if they were to pursue it again, if they were to have another story for Ellie or Joel or that whole world, I would totally jump on board,” she said.
She then adds, ?But you know there’s also a part of me that thinks, ‘Man, the story could stand alone,’ and sometimes we should just leave it alone. If they were to make another one, though, I would love to be a part of it.”
Ellie?s Not Coming Back?
Naughty Dog hasn?t employed the actress yet based on her statement. If the game is in the works, then surely they must?ve needed her help by now. It?s also possible that the Ellie in The Last of Us 2 is completely different. Fans are expecting for the sequel to take place years after the first game. This means that Ellie should be grown up by then. Naughty Dog might?ve opted to get another actress instead.
Naughty Dog isn?t saying anything about the sequel for now. Therefore, fans have to wait for it to see if Ellie does return.
