https://blog.eu.playstation.com/201...id=805132018501586944&adbpl=tw&adbpr=36969785Let’s cut to the chase. The sequel to The Last of Us is happening. It’s called The Last of Us Part II and here is the just released announcement trailer (coming soon to this post).
I can’t tell you how satisfying it is to finally be able to say that Ellie and Joel are back for another intense, harrowing, and emotional adventure. Like many of you, we have a deep love for the world of The Last of Us and its characters, and while a sequel may have seemed like a foregone conclusion, it wasn’t the case. We knew that it needed to be a story worth telling and, perhaps more importantly, a story worthy of Joel and Ellie. After spending years on different ideas (and almost giving up), we finally uncovered a story that felt special—a story that evolved into an epic journey.
It’s still early days for the project–the game’s release is a ways off–but we couldn’t wait any longer to give you a glimpse of what’s to come. We’re going to let the trailer speak for itself, but expect more information about The Last of Us Part II in the coming months
Still could be a playable character if Ellie is battling PTSD ect, also provide a reason why (assuming you play mainly as Joel) you still do all the heavy lifting despite Ellie's growth from the first game. Speculation is fun.ND have said it's a story about Ellie and Joel, I wouldn't like it if he was just in cut-scenes.
