The final scene for The Last of Us Part II has been shot, suggesting production on the game is fairly far along, but not quite reaching an end point.
Revealed by writer and director Neil Druckmann on Twitter, he wrote “Just shot this scene… so…” accompanied by the final page of a script with the words “CUT TO BLACK. THE END.” Druckmann also revealed on Instagram last week that Laura Bailey, who plays an undisclosed character, filmed her final scene.
The last major look we had of The Last of Us Part II was at Sony’s E3 2018 conference, which featured new gameplay and story details. We know Ellie will have an NPC companion, and one of the latest pieces of media surrounding the game we’ve seen is a poster of Joel and Ellie from September 2018.
The Last of Us Part II is one of several PlayStation 4 exclusives that doesn’t have an official release date, and could potentially be released in 2020, or even make it to the recently teased next-generation PlayStation. This includes Sucker Punch’s Ghost of Tsushima and Kojima Production’s Death Stranding. Additionally, reports from January indicate that Sony is shifting first-party development focus onto PlayStation 5.
