Fans of Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us have been waiting for the developer to reveal more information about the sequel, The Last of Us Part II. It is quite unfortunate that both Sony and Naughty Dog have remained tight-lipped and don’t want to reveal too much before the game’s release.
Since Sony skipped PSX last year and reportedly will not be attending E3 2019, fans are desperate for new info. Now, it seems we might get some update from Naughty Dog on The Last of Us 2 before E3 2019.
According to a noted video game news leaker, Aokiji, Sony will release some updates regarding The Last of Us 2 before E3. Since we’re already in May, new Last of Us 2 trailer or some sort of reveal should be quite close.
Aokiji posted a comment on a The Last of Us 2 discussion thread on Resetera, saying:
“Considering we’re getting an official TLOU2 update before E3, [it] would be really weird if it wasn’t 2019 now wouldn’t it [?].”
Aokiji is known to be quite credible when it comes to leaks. Previously, he leaked critical info regarding Sony’s State of Play which turned out to be true. So it is very likely that Sony will do a small The Last of Us 2 reveal before E3 2019.
There has also been a lot of speculation regarding when The Last of Us 2 is going to release. Various rumors have pointed towards a 2019 release date. Just quite recently, the motion capture for Joel and Ellie’s cutscenes finished shooting.
The game production has now shifted towards the post-production side where things are tested, final touches are added, and the overall game is polished to perfection. It wouldn’t be so far-fetched to assume a 2020 release date considering Naughty Dog wouldn’t want to do a rushed release.
As always, it is advised to take this leaked information with a grain of salt. Neither Sony nor Naughty Dog has mentioned any plans regarding upcoming The Last of Us 2 reveals. It seems that right now all fans can do is sit tight and wait for Naughty Dog to reveal more about The Last of Us Part 2.
The Last of Us Part II is an upcoming action-adventure game by Naughty Dog and Sony Interactive Entertainment for PlayStation 4.
