In a livestream about all things Uncharted The Nathan Drake Collection some potential information about The Last of Us 2 leaked
The Last of Us 2 is definitely a thing. Probably.
We're going by a bit of a slip up from Naughty Dog writer Josh Scheer during a live stream about the upcoming Uncharted The Nathan Drake Collection. Just check out what happens when he starts to stumble over his words here.
Let's just keep saying 'the first Last of Us' until it sounds like you haven't made a huge mistake. In all honesty, a sequel has been mooted before and while this remains nothing like an official confirmation, it's pretty likely we're going to see Joel and Ellie back again in the not-too distant future.
Scherr is the writer of the upcoming Uncharted 4: A Thief's End and Naughty Dog is fully focussed on that game right now, with a launch planned for 2016. Along with the release of the remastered collection of the first trilogy of games in the series, they're going to be all tied up with Nathan Drake for at least the next six to eight months. After that you could expect some news on a sequel to The Last of Us which might appear by 2017, that's four years after the first game.
Do we want a sequel? Sure it was a highly polished game with a great story but I'd kind of like to leave it there for this post apocalpytic world.
