If you’ve been pining for some news on The Last of Us Part II, apparently the wait is close to its end.
Naughty Dog itself confirmed via Twitter that the sequel of the tragic PS3 classic The Last of Us is going to appear at the State of Play broadcast to be hosted by Sony Interactive Entertainment in just a few days.
To be precise, the stream is going to happen on September 24 at 1:00 PM Pacific Time.
You can see the relevant tweet below.
Of course, the biggest piece of information many are waiting for is a release date.
We’ll have to see if Sony Interactive Entertainment and Naughty Dog will deliver on that front. I certainly wouldn’t be surprised.
The game seems to be close to completion as Naughty Dog concluded performance capture of the game’s ending a few months ago, and shortly afterward they wrapped up Joel and Ellie’s scenes.
Over the past few months, the team shared that the game’s writer Halley Gross will also have a role in the game, while Director Neil Druckmann himself mentioned another tease about “one of the most complicated and heart-wrenching scenes” Naughty Dog has ever worked on. We also heard how friendly competition between Sony’s first-party studios helps the folks at Naughty Dog improve their own games.
Unfortunately, we haven’t seen much of the game since the latest reveal at E3 2018. Yet, during the Holidays, Sony Interactive Entertainment released a dynamic theme dedicated to the game and a two-hour-long video showing the same scene with a burning car. That was Naughty Dog’s humorous (and appropriately dark) take on a Yule Log for the Holidays.
