PSX 2016: The Last of Us 2 is Real, Ellie and Joel are Still Alive

We’ve been hearing the rumours for years now, but finally we have something official: The Last of Us 2 is real and it’s coming to PS4, though we’ve no idea when.

According to the announcement trailer shown during the press conference (trailer to follow shortly) the game is in early development and will run on an updated engine to make the most of the PS4. As it’s still early days in The Last of Us Part II’s development, we’re not really expecting to see this one until late 2017 at the very earliest, though 2018 seems more realistic.

What’s more is that the heroes of the first game are making a return in the sequel. Yes, Ellie and Joel are still kicking around among the infected, though they’re a little older and a little wiser. We’ll be keeping an ear and an eye out for more news on this one.
