‘The Last of Us 2? Confirmed! Joel And Ellie Not Returning? Release Date Details Here!

By on

Rumors?that The Last of Us 2 might happen has excited fans of the game and they can now have a bit more certainty that the?highly acclaimed game in 2013 will get a sequel. It has been confirmed by the director that planning for the Last of Us 2 game has already started and before they could finish brainstorming, they were halted by Uncharted 4?s development. He has also revealed that they have considered having TLOU2 both with and without Joel and Ellie.

According to the Official PlayStation Magazine via GamesRadar, The Last of Us director Neil Druckmann said that they have already tried brainstorming ideas for the sequel and they were nearly close to narrowing it down:

?When Bruce (Straley) and I moved over to Uncharted 4, we were brainstorming ideas for The Last Of Us 2 with new characters; ideas for TLOU2 with Joel and Ellie; ideas for a sci-fi game; ideas for a fantasy game, and building prototypes for each one of those ideas. And just as we were getting close to settling or narrowing that list down, we were asked to work on Uncharted 4.?

Fans had mixed reactions on having no Joel and Ellie in TLOU2.?Some felt that the story of both characters has already concluded in TLOU and it is time for someone new and fresh. Some, however, felt that the game would not be the same if the two stars are not included.

Some, however, have a whole different perspective on what should happen for the sequel. These fans are also brewing ideas of their own and Naughty Dog may still possibly pick these ideas as development for Uncharted 4 still has a long way to go.

Do you think Joel and Ellie should be the central characters again in TLOU2? What do you think should be the focus of the story? Uncharted 4: A Thief?s End will be released on March 18, 2016 and if Naughty Dog eventually decides to work on TLOU2, the title may be released beyond 2017.
