It has been rumored that the upcoming Last of Us 2 will focus more on Ellie and Joel will have to take a backseat. Nolan recently apologized for his last statement suggesting that Naughty Dog has been working on The Last of Us 2. According to him, he simply said those statements from a fan’s perspective and was quite shocked when his remark spread like wildfire.
During his interview with Movie Pilot, the actor said that he went back and watched it and he, of course, said what he said. However, he simply said it from a fan’s point of view and didn’t confirm anything whatsoever.
In the end, he declared that he has no knowledge of whether Naughty Dog is presently working on The Last of Us 2. He even got in contact with Evan Wells in order to apologize but the latter didn’t consider it to be a big deal and simply wanted him to let it go.
Ellie and Joel have a long way to go and The Last of Us fans would be cheated if they were forced to get acquainted with new characters in the sequel. That being said, Naughty Dog does have the ability to introduce a new set of characters with extreme skill and dedication.
Stay tuned for more updates on The Last of Us 2!
