According to a rumor launched by Kotaku, Bruce Straley will not cover the role of co-director in The Last of Us Part 2 and will not be involved in the development, unlike what happened in The Last of Us and Uncharted 4. The only responsible person for the project will be Neil Druckmann.
According to some sources quoted by Kotaku, Straley would take a sabbatical after 20 years of uninterrupted work, thus leaving the task of leading the game to his friend and colleague Neil Druckmann. Straley has worked in Naughty Dog since 1996 and he felt the need of a pause reflection,
At the time, however, Sony and Naughty Dog have not commented on this rumor, which therefore remains only a rumor unconfirmed. Stay tuned for more updates about it.
Recall that, Neil Druckmann was the guest of a panel held during the PlayStation Experience 2016 and focused completely on the new game of The Last of Us: Part II, highly anticipated title announced during the conference.
The creative director of the game (and at Naughty Dog) has released the first official details about the second part of the story involving Ellie and Joel. Below we have collected and listed all the information related to the title:
