The Last of Us Part II has been released today to widespread critical acclaim and Sony’s first-party studios are celebrating Naughty Dog’s achievement.
It has become a bit of a tradition for PlayStation’s studios to celebrate the release of a major game with artwork, and they certainly didn’t miss the chance to do the same this time around.
Opening the dances is Sucker Punch, which is about to release Ghost of Tsushima, posting a lovely illustration by artist Edward Pun.
Next is God of War developer Santa Monica Studio and director Cory Balrog, bringing in artwork by Lead Environment Concept Artist Luke Berliner.
Days Gone’s studio Bend is likely the most obvious association, bringing Ellie and Deacon St. John together.
Last, but not least, Dreams developer Media Molecule had art director Kareem Ettouney give new life to Ellie in the studio’s popular creative suite.
