'The Last Of Us 2' Finally Confirmed But With A Longer Waiting Time
Naughty Dog has (finally!) officially confirmed that they will be launching "The Last of Us 2" but the release date may take long, too long that it may get fans a bit less excited.
Naughty Dog's Neil Druckmann, programmer and creative director, unveiled earlier that they are focusing their resources in developing Uncharted 4's DLC before they can even start working on The Last Of Us 2. The sequel is considerably late considering that it was first released and became an instant hit for the Playstation 3.
Define 'long wait'
Druckmann expressed in a dialogue with The Frame that the sequel, currently known as The Last of Us 2, will be having a release date set in 2021. On top of that, official updates are not to be expected until 2018. Based on these statements, Naughty Dog seems to be seriously busy with making expansions for Uncharted as it is still currently the top video game worldwide.
Rumors about it not pushing thru laid to rest
Nevertheless, fans are still happy to know that the game is still in mind and not cancelled despite the very long wait. Reports have been spread that the game series will be put down due to lack of official updates but today, the speculations have been silenced.
Why the huge timeline gap?
It is speculated that Naughty Dog could be working on another fresh Intellectual Property (IP) right after the Uncharted 4 DLC would be released, this could fill in the gap between then and 2021, as reported by the Inquisitr. There are rumors that the delay is due to developers waiting for the next console generations. Although the PS4 Pro and the Upcoming Xbox Scorpio are revealed, these are not considered next generation.
The Last Of Us 2 start date for development could happen in 2018 as Druckmann said. Fans should not worry considering the first game was a hit, and preparations should take place properly in order to achieve such great heights.
In the meantime, reminisce the scenes from the first installment of The Last of Us below.
