The Playstation Experience keynote ended on a high note with The Last of Us Part II being revealed.
As seen in the reveal trailer, Ellie and Joel are back after spending years apart. The development is in the early stages (as is expected from Sony reveals these days) and Neil had the following to say about it:
I can’t tell you how satisfying it is to finally be able to say that Ellie and Joel are back for another intense, harrowing, and emotional adventure. Like many of you, we have a deep love for the world of The Last of Us and its characters, and while a sequel may have seemed like a foregone conclusion, that wasn’t the case. We knew that it needed to be a story worth telling and, perhaps more importantly, a story worthy of Joel and Ellie. After spending years on different ideas (and almost giving up), we finally uncovered a story that felt special—a story that evolved into an epic journey.
There will be a panel at PSX with Troy Baker and Ashley Johnson as well.
