Naughty Dog Announces The Last of Us 2

While it has been rumored for a while now, today we got official confirmation that The Last of Us is getting a sequel that follows an older Ellie and Joel.

During a panel discussion later in the day, creative director Neil Druckmann confirmed that Ellie will be the playable character in The Last of Us 2. “Joel was the star in the first, Ellie is the star in this one,” said Druckmann. “Ellie plays differently from Joel.”

The first game was released in 2013 with a big cliffhanger that didn’t make it very clear what would happen to Ellie, so it makes sense for Naughty Dog to return to her. Given Joel’s decision to save Ellie, there’s a lot of juicy ground for a follow-up to cover. Does Ellie feel guilty? Does she…know? What happened to Joel and Ellie’s relationship?

Here’s the trailer:
