On Tuesday, a rumor began going around that the sequel to 2013’s survival-horror smash hit game The Last of Uswould be announced at this June’s Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3). Now, we have a bit of a follow up to that rumor, as Huge Leak is reporting that The Last of Us 2 was confirmed at PAX East, and it’s set to be announced at the aforementioned E3 in mid-June.
The project was apparently confirmed by a source who wanted to remain anonymous, but the mystery source did reveal a ton of info about the highly-anticipated sequel.
The source is claiming that The Last of Us 2 will be released on PS4 at some point in 2018, with compatibility for the PlayStation VR Headset. Apparently Joel and Ellie will be returning in the sequel, however, they may not end up being the game’s main characters.
