‘The Last Of Us 2’ Release Date In December? Naughty Dog Moves On To ‘TLOU’ After ‘Uncharted 4’

New updates on The Last of Us 2 were expected to be unveiled at the recently concluded E3 2017. However, many fans who have been excitedly anticipating for the release of the game’s sequel were disappointed when game developer, Naughty Dog, did not share any updates on TLOU. When can fans expect to hear updates on the sequel?

The Last of Us 2 updates were not provided to fans during Sony’s E3 2017. As the Inquisitr reported previously, there have been speculations that Naughty Dog will either be releasing a new trailer or announcing the release date for TLOU 2.

However, Sony’s E3 2017 has already ended with no announcement or updates on The Last of Us: Part II. According to Comic Book, the game’s writer, Neil Druckmann, explained to fans via a post on Twitter that they are excited to give fans updates to TLOU 2.

The Last of Us 2 will reveal what happened to Joel and Ellie following the events that took place in the first game. Druckmann shared that they are “super excited” to show fans Joel and Ellie’s next journey, but they would like to focus on Chloe and Nadine from Naughty Dog’s new game, Uncharted: The Lost Legacy.


This is Naughty Dog’s next game just weeks following the release of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. Given that the game developer has already finished working on two Uncharted games, many fans believe that it would be proper for Naughty Dog to work on The Last of Us 2 this time.

Should Naughty Dog begin working on The Last of Us 2, it is believed that more details to the sequel will be released this December. After all, the game developer released The Last of Us: Part II trailer during 2016 PlayStation Experience and Druckmann promised that more updates to the game would be released “in the coming months.”


The release of The Last of Us 2 trailer came as a surprise to most fans since many were expecting to wait until E3. Druckmann explained that he and Naughty Dog had a big discussion about the release and later on came to the conclusion that the PSX was the perfect venue for the release of TLOU 2 trailer because they are fans of the said event, per an earlier report from The Inquisitr.

Since the release of the trailer to The Last of Us 2, the online web was filled with tons of speculations and theories about the plot for the upcoming sequel. A popular theory among fans is one that involves the death of Joel since Ellie appears keen on getting revenge against a certain group believed to be the Fireflies.
