We all figured this was only a matter of time and now we have a rough idea when The Last Of Us sequel may arrive…

Series developer Bruce Straley has said that the game will be the next big project after Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End: “We’re 110 percent in Uncharted 4 territory now,” he said.

“We have brainstormed sequel ideas for The Last of Us, and we’ve brainstormed ideas for new games, but all of that is put on ice right now while we work on Uncharted 4.”

Meanwhile, creator Neil Druckmann has said it may not necessarily feature Joel and Ellie from the first game as Troy Baker and Ashley Johnson may not want to return: “I’d probably reconsider the story at that point. They are Joel and Ellie… no one should be that smart, talented, and attractive. It’s sick really.

“We have such limited resources, and it’s a question of where you put the resources. It’s something where we can have a feel of where the demand is, and where our time is best spent. It’s something that we’ll figure out as we move forward.”

So the game is coming but may not feature Joel and Ellie? Conflicted feelings, folks? Yeah, us too…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….

    This article, published today, bases it’s “confirmation” The Last of Us 2 on a vague mentioning of “brainstorming ideas” for a sequel by one of the creators of the original game.

    This article is hilariously sourced by another article from a website I’ve never heard of- which of course that afore mentioned joke of an article is sourced by an article on Gamespot, who of course based their presumptions on the posibility of a Last of Us sequel on the original vague “brainstorming ideas” quote made in an interview with Game Informer.

    Gotta love that internet journalizm which leads to this article today confirming the impending release of The Last of Us 2!

    Is a sequel to The Last of Us likely to happen? I’d say yes. Is this article or any of the other speculation about the game a confirmation that the game will be greenlit, developed and released? No.
