I’m a bit hesitant about this, given how perfectly The Last of Us ended. On the other hand, there’s room to evolve the Ellie character, who is now the protagonist. This quote is interesting:
Druckmann said that the reason the sequel is specifically named “Part 2” is that it’s a “complementary story to the first game” and that the two games will tell “a much larger story.”
I guess you’ll be getting a PS4 now, @UrbanReflex?
