Neil Druckman, creative director at Naughty Dog, took to the stage at PSX 2016 to talk about The Last Of Us part 2. The first teaser trailer for the game had been revealed earlier in the show.
You can view the full panel below:
Neil said that part 2 takes place five years after the first game when Ellie is 19 years old. Ellie will be the main playable character whereas Joel was the main playable character in the first game.
He also talked about what the game will have to offer in terms of story:
If the first game, the theme was the love between these two characters. This story is the counter of that, it's about hate.
After watching the trailer and watching Neil say this, it seems like The Last Of Us part 2 is going to be a revenge story about Ellie.
Finally, Neil told the fans to have faith in Naughty Dog that they will bring justice to the characters of Joel and Ellie as many players felt like their story was over:
No-one loves these characters more than we do, and we wouldn't do it if we didn't have the right idea. I had ideas with different characters and it didn't feel right. The Last of Us is about these two characters. All I ask is that fans of the first one put some faith in us – we're going to do right by you.
