Last of Us 2 Release: 5 Things to Know Right Now

The Last of Us for PlayStation 3 was one of the biggest hits from 2013 and The Last of Us Remastered for PS4 was a popular release in 2014. The success of the game has fans clamoring for a sequel though a Last of Us 2 release remains unconfirmed. That doesn’t mean we haven’t seen details emerge and today we want to take you through what you need to know about a Last of Us 2 release.

The Last of Us was first announced all the way back in 2011. The game, from popular developer Naughty Dog, was highly anticipated from the start thanks to the studios success with the Uncharted series for PlayStation. It wasn’t until 2013 that Naughty Dog and Sony got the game out onto shelves and fortunately, it was well worth the wait.

In 2014, Naughty Dog released a remastered version of the game for the PlayStation 4. The game features improved graphics and a higher frame rate that weren’t possible on the PlayStation 3. The game quickly became a best seller for PlayStation 4 as well.

According to Nolan North, The Last of Us 2 is currently in the works at Naughty Dog. North, for those that don't know, voices Nathan Drake from the Uncharted series. He also voiced a character in the Last of Us. 

If Last of Us 2 is in development, the voice of Joel (the protagonist in the first Last of Us) isn't saying. Troy Baker recently said that he knows nothing about a sequel but that if there is one, he trusts the directors at Naughty Dog to tell a great story and do the game justice.
