Ellie And Joel Return In The Last Of Us Part II

The Last of Us was one of the best games of the last generation, and even though some felt that it didn't need a sequel (okay, that was me), it's hard to complain that Naughty Dog is making another one.

We don't have a lot of details on this sequel, but new trailer showed Ellie playing a guitar, and we got a glimpse of Joel, before Ellie said, "I'm going to kill them all." We hope she's not talking about us.

"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, that wasn’t the case," said creative director Neil Druckmann. "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."

Druckmann says The Last of Us Part II is "a ways off."
