Following the release of the trailer for The Last Of Us 2 which revealed the release date of the game, Nail Dog’s Neil Druckmann wrote an open letter to the community published on the pages of PlayStation Blog.
” Thank you for being patient. Very patient. Although we couldn’t wait to share more on The Last of Us Part II and reveal its release date, we wanted to wait until we were closer to the end of production. We have a lot of new things to share with you today … starting from the fact that on February 21st, 2020 Last of Us Part II will finally be in your hands.
We started working on this game about five years ago. It is difficult to describe the immense pressure of creating a sequel. We know how much you love this world and their characters, especially Ellie and Joel. Believe me, we are fans too. We love them. This is why we have spent years creating a game that we believe can do them justice, telling a nuanced story that addresses the main question: how far would you get to get justice against people who hurt those you love?
It’s a very emotional story with complex themes that suit the world of The Last of Us. What we understood early enough was that we were putting together one of Naughty Dog’s most ambitious and longest games in our 35-year history. To tell this kind of story, the game had to be huge. “
Druckmann proudly reiterates how The Last of Us Part 2 is ” the largest and most ambitious game ever created by Naughty Dog in 35 years ” and reiterates that new game details will soon arrive. When? Thursday, September 26th at 5:00 pm (GMT +2), on the occasion of the Outbreak Day, the international press will be able to publish their impressions on the three-hour trial held in Los Angeles on September 24th.
