“ Thank you for being patient with us. Very patient. Even though we’ve been eager to share more about The Last of Us Part II and tell you its release date, we wanted to wait until we were close to wrapping up production and we were confident in the date itself “
The same also tells of the time that the game took to be developed and also comments on the pressure that is to continue this story to maintain its quality, as in the previous game.
He even puts himself in the fan’s shoes, saying that the team that works in the game also loves the game and its history.
Telling the story that deals with the main question: “How far would you be to apply justice against the people who hurt those you love? “
“We began working on this game over five years ago. It’s hard to describe the immense pressure of following up the first game. We know how much you love this world and its characters — especially Ellie and Joel. Believe me, we’re fans as well. We love them. Which is why we spent years crafting a game that we feel will do them justice, telling a nuanced story that deals with the core question: how far would you go to exact justice against the people that hurt the ones you love?”
“It’s a highly emotional story with complex themes that befit the world of The Last of Us.”
Neil comments that the team that develops the game did not expect to create the longest and most ambitious game in the history of Naughty Dog.
