Last Of Us 2 Will Probably Launch In June 2018
Although the PlayStation Meeting that revealed the PS4 Slim and PS4 Pro was great in terms of hardware, a little part of us was disappointed that there wasn’t even a whiff of new software – namely The Last of Us 2.
We already know that The Last of Us 2 is coming. Thanks to the success of the first game, it’s pretty much inevitable.
But we also know it’s coming because top-notch gaming voice actor Nolan North – who voiced Nathan Drake in the Uncharted series – said in 2015:
“For now I know they’re doing Last of Us 2, but my character in Last of Us kind of met an untimely demise.”
Naughty Dog itself has slipped up a few times too when it comes to discussing The Last of Us 2, but it was down to Naughty Dog Creative Director, Neil Druckmann, to give us the real skinny:
“The answer is – and this is totally honest, and I’ve said this in the past – that when Bruce [Straley] and I moved over to Uncharted 4, we were brainstorming ideas for The Last Of Us 2 with new characters; ideas for TLOU 2 with Joel and Ellie; ideas for a sci-fi game; ideas for a fantasy game, and building prototypes for each one of those ideas. And just as we were getting close to settling or narrowing that list down, we were asked to work on Uncharted 4.”
Seeing as we’re hurtling towards the end of 2016 like Santa on a bender, we very much doubt we’re going to get any sort of The Last of Us reveal this year.
That means we’re at least looking at a 2017 release date for the game, but we’d put money on a June 2018 launch, which puts it exactly five years after the original release.
Hopefully we’ll see an E3 2017 reveal next June.
