While the Uncharted saga established Naughty Dog once and for all as a big-time studio, The Last of Us elevated them to the Olympus of game developers alongside a handful of peers (in my opinion, CD Projekt RED, Rockstar Games and Arkane Studios). We knew that it needed to be a story worth telling and, perhaps more importantly, a story worthy of Joel and Ellie. The Lat of Us: Part II is now in "Very Very Early Stage of Development", however, Naughty Dog has an idea on when the game will be ready, but they won't share the details for a while.
They continue to be the heart of The Last of Us series, though, and Game Informer went on to confirm Gustavo Santaolalla, the musical maestro that worked on the original, haunting score, will be back, back, back for The Last of Us Part II. After several close up shots, we realize that the person playing the guitar is Ellie, and she's all grown up. It's our hope that much of the work is going into blowing up the game's performance, after the massive benefit and positive reception The Last of Us got from being able to run at 60 frames per second in its PS4 remaster. It is available on Playstation 3 and 4. The Last of Us is about these two characters specifically.
"Joel was the star in the first, Ellie is the star in this one". Sony eventually released The Last of Us Remastered on PlayStation 4, an upscaled and more pretty version of the game for more powerful gaming hardware.
Druckmann was very careful not to reveal too much, but he did say that Naughty Dog has been working on the game in some capacity for at least two years. Naughty Dog has not revealed a release date.

But, as in the first two rounds, he found his rhythm on the par 72's back nine and reeled off birdies at 10, 11, 12, 13 and 15 to eat into Stone's lead.
The Last of Us Part II is a direct counter to the original game-the first game was about love and bonding, the sequel is about dark malice. "I'm gonna find and I'm gonna kill every last one of them", she coldly replies.
During a panel hosted following the keynote, Druckmann touched on the notion that The Last of Us didn't need a sequel, saying: "We're going to do right by you".
For a long time, Naughty Dog has been teasing The Last of Us 2, toying with our emotions but keeping things under wraps.
