The Last of Us 2 release date, news, and rumors
As titles go, The Last of Us is a pretty finite one. But as it turns out, The Last of Us wasn’t the last of it and work on a sequel (The Last of Us 2) is well underway.
Given the first game was hailed by players and critics alike as a masterpiece with excellent, emotional storytelling and engaging, realistic characters, we have to admit that the decision to release a follow-up isn’t particularly shocking. We’d probably have been more surprised if there wasn’t one.
The Last of Us 2 was first announced by Naughty Dog at PlayStation Experience in 2016 alongside a teaser trailer and as we reach the middle of 2018, we’re now hoping to hear an official release date any day now.

In a recent interview with Vorterix, the game’s composer, Gustavo Santaolalla, said that it’s going to launch in 2019. Naturally, this hasn’t been confirmed so we’d take it with a pinch of salt. However, it doesn’t seem all that implausible as a release window given that in-game footage was only shown as recently as Paris Games Week
