For a long time, Naughty Dog has been teasing The Last of Us 2, toying with our emotions but keeping things under wraps. However, today is the day for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4 Pro players to rejoice!
The Last of Us 2 has been announced as The Last of Us Part 2. The developers confirmed and revealed the game with a brief teaser trailer at PlayStation Experience Day 1.
There were rumors of new characters taking the lead but that is not the case. Joel and Ellie are back for The Last of Us Part 2.
Ellie is not happy with a certain group of enemies and will be going on a hunt with Joel. “I am gonna find and I am gonna kill every last one of them,” she said in the trailer. This indicates that the story will revolves around vengeance.

Sony mentioned that The Last of Us 2 is in “super early” stages of development. But we have heard of the game’s existence since the announcement of Uncharted 4.
On a number of occasions, The Last of Us part 2 was leaked by different sources from within Naughty Dog. Last year, one of ND devs accidently mentioned the game.
And he was the one responsible for the facial animations for the three Uncharted games and the first The Last of Us game .. I just said the first game The Last of Us?
Nolan North on the other hand outright confirmed the game.
For now the last one. I know they’re doing The Last of Us 2, but my character in The Last of Us had an untimely demise.
So it is safe to say that The Last of Us 2 is not THAT early in development, it has been in the works for at least 2 years now.
