The Last Of Us Part 2 News: Bruce Straley Will Not Return To Direct; Troy Baker Speaks Up Having Second Thoughts Auditioning For Joel Role
PlayStation Experience 2016 has been surprising, for the most part, who would have expected to see Crash Bandicoot again? Too much nostalgia, yes? And speaking of nostalgia, perhaps the most shocking part of it all was Naughty Dog's revelation of The Last of Us Part 2.
For gaming die-hards, The Last of Us has been a rollercoaster of emotions - its stunning visuals interweave perfectly with its deep, emotional narrative. And finally confirming a sequel is too much to bear. However, one sad news about the game - The Last of Us director won't be coming for Part Two.
Bruce Straley directed The Last of Us and Uncharted 4: A Thief's End with Neil Druckmann so we somehow see how this genius of a director gave these video games more depth and meaning especially to its storyline. However, Sony confirmed to Kotaku that Straley won't be coming back for The Last of Us 2.
"Bruce recently decided to take some much deserved time off after shipping two critically acclaimed games in the last few years. He's looking forward to returning to the studio soon and jumping back in on his next project."
Thankfully, Druckmann will stay as director for The Last of Us Part 2 and announced some new details about the project, which is currently in its early stage of development. Additionally, at the PlayStation Experience 2016 panel, Troy Baker, who plays Joel, addressed some questions about the upcoming game.
Baker said that The Last of Us' Joel influenced him in some way and he missed playing that part the most. He also admitted that the BAFTA Games Award for Best Game changed his life as an actor. He also recalled when he had second thoughts of auditioning for Joel, even to the point of almost walking out of the audition since "he felt that he wasn't right for the character". But when his name was called, Baker realized that he should let go of his fear and continue the audition instead. "Don't let fear be the reason why you don't do something," he said, which was received with cheers and applause.
Baker then said that returning to The Last of Us Part 2 can be quite scary as they already had their hearts open. The Last of Us actor then tells the audience to "trust us, trust everybody that we know what we're doing."
