The Last of Us is surrounded by a lot of rumors. Some say that the first part is going to be the only one while others hope to see the sequel. According to the leaks form Naughty Dog and some of the hints by developers we can assume that The Last of Us part 2 will come. Here is what we know so far.

According to the rumors you can expect The Last of Us part 2 to be released in the end of 2017 or in the beginning of 2018. The Last of Us 2 release date is till vague but we can hope to see it since Nolan North whose voice is used by David hints at it.
We can predict that The Last of Us part 2 will tell us about search for cure from the virus. The life of Ellie may have the clues how to do it. There is also an idea to introduce zombies to the story line. It may sound logical but such an approach is going to change the game genre a little bit.
TLOU 2 is unavailable for PC as well as the first part. The game is going to be released for PlayStation 4. The use of PlayStation 3 is unlikely according to the latest tendency.
As we have mentioned TLOU 2 may have zombies that means that the game will be closer to Dead Space genre that may change its plot dramatically. It can entail the time change and we will play in a distant feature. That means that we will have new weapons, new costumes and new forms of life. However, if the game will stick to a traditional scenario, it may lead to developing moral aspect of the series. Thus we may learn more about characters and see the new ones. Such approach can lead to RPG elements being introduced.
Depending on the scenario choice TLOU 2 may have different characters. If the game stays classical, we may expect to learn more about Ellie’s life and about brother of Joel. Thus Tommy may be a more important character than he is. Meanwhile, introduction of zombies may entail less characters.
TLOU 2 is likely to stay the same third person game where you should explore the world and try to survive. However, if the game takes a new ply and will be closer to Dead Space mood, we can expect to use new firearms and obtain new skills. Perhaps we will have some mini games connected with zombie hunt. If the game will stick to RPG genre we may rely on upgrade system and use of new abilities. Perhaps we will be told more about moral aspect of the characters that may change the structure of the dialogues and make their role more important.
