The Last of Us 2 Will Be Ellie-Centric; Easter Egg Spotted in Unchartered 4

By Princess Love

Unchartered 4 has now been released and it seems that Naughty Dog has given us an easter egg. Inside the gameplay of Unchartered 4 there is a poster with a title "The Last of Us: American Daughters", and it shows a pregnant woman which looks like Ellie.

Before this, we already know that The Last of Us 2 is going to happen. According to Neil Druckman, Naughty Dog is already drafting for storylines for the upcoming game. There are also reports that the upcoming TLOU 2 will center around Ellie and that Joel will take the backseat. 

Remember back in June when North Nolan said, "I know they're doing a Last of Us 2," in MetroCon? Well apparently that not exactly what he meant.

He's most recently statement is, "I apologize to 'Last of Us' fans because I certainly don't know and that's the truth."

The morning after his statement back in June has gone viral; the voice actor said that he was shocked by how fast it actually got around.

According to North Nolan, he only said those statements from a "fan's point of view."

In his interview with Moviepilot, the actor said;

"I went back and I watched it and I did say what I said. But I said it from the idea of like any fan. In my head, 'a game that makes that much money, is that critically acclaimed, they would probably do that.' But I didn't say 'probably.' To this day, I have no knowledge of it because I don't work at Naughty Dog."

He also added that just because he is a voice actor in the game that he has knowledge of it development, so his statements shouldn't matter that much.

He continued, "People are like, 'Yeah, but you're Nathan Drake.' I'm like, 'That doesn't matter when it comes to games."

After finding out that his statements actually went viral, he called Evan Well to apologize, and Wells assured the actor that it's "no big deal" and to just "let it blow over".  

Now despite North Nolan's confessions there are still some of us who are hoping that there's actually going to be a 'The Last of Us 2'.

According to Neil Druckman they are still not sure if they'll be creating a sequel to 'The Last of Us', he added that they'll know, "until probably a few months after we finish Uncharted 4."

However, despite the fact that they are still not sure about the future of 'The Last of Us' it is good to know that they're already planning it.

In the most recent interview of PlayStation Magazine via MoviePilot, Neil Druckman revealed; 

"The answer is - and this is totally honest, and I've said this in the past - that when Bruce (Straley) and I moved over to Uncharted 4, we were brainstorming ideas for The Last Of Us 2 with new characters; ideas for TLOU 2 with Joel and Ellie; ideas for a sci-fi game; ideas for a fantasy game, and building prototypes for each one of those ideas."
