The Last of Us-2

The Last of Us 2 is one of the most highly anticipated game ever. It is a follow up to Naughty Dog?s highly successful The Last of Us game. It received much critical acclaim and has won over 240 gaming awards. This is because of wonderful game design and an engrossing storyline. In June 2015, when actor North Nolan mentioned that the Naughty Dog team is doing a The Last of Us 2, fans began to clamor for a sequel.

Neil Druckmann, the creative director of the game, revealed that they were working on ideas for The Last of Us 2 before they were interrupted to shift to the development of Uncharted 4: A Thief?s End. But as the game was already released on May 10, 2016, are we finally going to get The Last of Us 2? Also, news about a film adaptation were circling around. We know that they were writing it and had halted because of some ?development hell? but is any of these two on the horizon?


Well, Druckmann revealed that The Last of Us film development had not moved anywhere for the past couple of years. He added that an Uncharted film has also been in development for nine years and he said that his team learned that these things happen very slowly and in their own time. This, Druckmann revealed in an interview with the Southern California Public Radio (SCPR).The Last Of Us film adaptation was to be produced, reportedly, by Sam Raimi of the Evil Dead fame. ?

For now, it looks like we are not going to get the film adaptation yet. But it?s quite alright. Many games have had longer time transitioning into the big screen. Take Tetris for example. It took a while and now it is not just making one movie but a trilogy. But kidding aside, it would not be wise to hold our breaths for the movie and the sequel. We shall see what will happen in the next following weeks.
