The Last Of Us Part II Is Naughty Dog’s “Most Ambitious Game,” Says Troy Baker
It has been quite some time since we received any official update news from the development of The Last of Us Part II, with the only ‘information’ coming to us by way of a myriad of alleged leaks and rumors. While developer Naughty Dog has remained tight-lipped throughout the game’s development, the voice actors for the game have been a bit more forthcoming, with Troy Baker recently speaking about how ambitious The Last of Us Part II is a s a whole.
Speaking to Push Square at Manchester Comic-Con, Baker wasn’t willing to share much, though what he did reveal seemed in keeping with Naughty Dog’s general policy of always outdoing itself. “I can tell you this: it’s hands down the most ambitious game that Naughty Dog has ever done for sure,” he said. It’s far larger than I thought was going to be possible.”
Baker was also asked about the recent slip-up Ellie actor Ashley Johnson made, wherein she seemingly revealed the Q1 2020 release window for The Last of Us Part II unintentionally. “It’ll be out 31st February, that’s what [Johnson] said – people just took it out of context,” Baker said jokingly. “Wow, I’m sure she got a call from Sony saying, ‘Shut up!’ She’s like, ‘Guys, it’s a f*cking joke!’”
“I think they’ve probably been smart not to tell us because we can’t slip up and say something stupid,” Baker admitted. “Last time we announced, we slipped. And they don’t want to do that again. We are still cranking on it, I can tell you that much. Where it’s at in development, I have no idea. Everybody feels like it’s broken until it’s shipping, and then when it’s shipping they’re like, ‘We shipped a broken game!’ And that’s the gig of making a game.” Here’s hoping an official update for The Last of Us Part II will be forthcoming.
The Last of Us Part II is currently in development for PlayStation 4.
