The Last of Us 2 2019

Is The Last of Us: Part II actually releasing this year? A lot of people are starting to think so, and although we're not quite convinced just yet, it does seem as though the project has hit an important milestone. Over on Twitter, director and writer Neil Druckmann has stated that "the most ambitious cinematic shoot we’ve ever done" is all wrapped up. Included is a photograph of lead actors Troy Baker (Joel) and Ashley Johnson (Ellie) on set in full motion capture gear.

"Tears were shed", eh? It sounds like Naughty Dog's got another emotional roller coaster on its hands.
