The Last Of Us was one of the best-received games of 2013, earning Naughty Dog yet more critically acclaimed for its setting, gameplay, characters, and story. Many have been wondering if the game will get a sequel, and after several hints and rumors, we may be seeing The Last Of Us 2 at this year’s Playstation Experience.
Considering that the list of developers that would be coming to the event included Naughty Dog alongside other developers that are in the process of making highly-anticipated Playstation 4 games, the possibility of a The Last Of Us sequel getting shown off is certainly something that’s within the realm of possibility.
However, there’s also been some rumors that single-player DLC for Uncharted 4 might be in the works for a reveal at the Playstation Experience. Which one turns out to be true will just have to see until this weekend in Anaheim when the Playstation Experience actually starts.
Considering that both Uncharted 4 and The Last Of Us got critical acclaim and sold very well, either game would likely get an excellent reception despite their different plots and settings (treasure-hunting in long-forgotten ruins against post-apocaylptic fungus zombie survival).
Whatever The Last Of Us 2 would even involve also remains to be seen; while the original Last Of Us game ended with Joel and Ellie returning to the settlement run by Joel’s brother Tommy after Joel rescues Ellie from the Fireflys, what happens afterward might involve a time skip after Ellie starts out on her own.
However, if The Last Of Us 2 really is going to be at the Playstation Experience, Naughty Dog will likely have another critically acclaimed goldmine on its hands, especially if the sequel follows the Uncharted trend and goes bigger and better while not skipping out on the character drama.
The Playstation Experience starts on December 3 (this Saturday) and goes until December 4, on the next Sunday, and will likely have the press event where they’ll be debuting and showing off new gameplay streamed, so be on the lookout for any updates.
