More about The Last of Us Part 2:
Development of The Last of Us Part II began in 2014. Troy Baker and Ashley Johnson reprise their roles as Joel and Ellie, respectively. The story is written by Neil Druckmann and Halley Gross. Gustavo Santaolalla returns to compose and perform the score. Anthony Newman and Kurt Margenau are game directors; Bruce Straley, game director on The Last of Us, left Naughty Dog in 2017. The game will feature multiplayer.
The Last of Us Part II was announced at the PlayStation Experience event on December 3, 2016. The first trailer revealed the return of Ellie and Joel, whose story takes place five years after the first game; players control Ellie. Whereas the first game centers on love, Druckmann stated Part II centers on hate. Motion capture began in 2017.
The second trailer was released on October 30, 2017, as part of Paris Games Week. It revealed four new characters: Yara (played by Victoria Grace), Lev (Ian Alexander), Emily (Emily Swallow), and an unnamed character played by Laura Bailey. Druckmann stated that the characters “are integral to [Ellie and Joel’s] next journey”. The game was featured at Sony’s E3 event on June 11, 2018.
