GameInformer: "The game easily sits on my list of the five greatest games from this generation, and yet, I don't think I want to see a sequel."

They can't make a direct Ellie and Joel sequel they can however most certainly make another game in their universe. I mean why build such a well supported ,deep, and interesting universe just so you could use it in one masterpiece

I think it can be with Joel and Ellie again or completely new characters. Either way, the results would still be amazing in my opinion. I would love to know more backstory about the fireflies though.

GI should have titled the article "Why ND 'shouldn't' make a sequel to TLOU"

TLOU will obviously have a sequel. not only did it sell well and sony the fact that registered tlou2 and tlou3 online but...


the game ended in a lie, they can clearly work off of that (even though the ending was so great)

Why cant they make a Joel and Ellie sequel?

Are we to believe nothing ever happens to them again for the rest of their lives?

princejb1341739d ago

What if they make a last of us sequel but Tommy's story all the way till he build the power plant
Or like you said another game universe. Maybe somewhere in china or brazil but another country for sure

ArchangelMike1739d ago

Yeah I get that and all, but lets be honest. This is the games industry, and given the critica success of TLoU, I'm sure Sony will already be cashing the cheques for TLoU 2.

ND should make a sequel but with differetn characters. There's enough back story there with the war between the Fireflies, the military and the hunters to make an interesting sequel, that does not need to centre around Joel and Ellie. ND will just have to maintain the excellent characterisation.

I would love to see a sequel where Ellie is the main character. She has to know Joel was lying to protect her, so a sequel where she goes looking for the truth or something would be interesting.

Bathyj1739d ago

Agreed. I said the same in another thread. What if other members of the Firefires decided to come after her? We cant have killed them all. I only killed one of the Doctors in the surgery.

rdgneoz31739d ago

@Bathyj I shot them all (the doctors) in the head, so chances of them coming back in a sequel are slim...

As for a sequel, they could always do one that fills in the time gap in the beginning of the game.

HammadTheBeast1739d ago

They said Naughty Dog couldn't top Uncharted. And yet they did.

There is potential, but Naughty Dog has a LOT of pressure on them to, if making a sequel, doing it right.

Right now we don't want a sequel, it's been a month or two only, but in a year or two,I'd definitely want to know how Joel and Ellie worked out.

Bathyj1739d ago

I'm of the opinion Naughty Dog love pressure. They seem to thrive in it. Even the first Uncharted had high expectations and they seem to raise the bar of the industry every time they release a game.

ArchangelMike1739d ago (Edited 1739d ago )

ND indeed thrive on pressure. Now Imagine if TLoU 2, will be to TLoU, what Uncharted 2 was to Uncharted.

O M G !!!

The leap between Uncharted and Uncharted 2 was so signifacant, it made Uncharted look like a last gen (PS2) game. If ND can again pull that off with TLoU 2, especially with the power of the PS4 (I can't see them doing anymore with the PS3 this gen beyond new DLC), it could completely revolutionize the game/movie divide.

Pancit_Canton1739d ago (Edited 1739d ago )

I'm pretty sure TLOU will be just like ICO.

Pretty much all the sequel will be spiritual successor. After all, the game was inspired by ICO itself. Shadow of the colossus was an epic game and so its successor THE LAST GUARDIAN. I hope Sony will expand and continue to nurture more talented developers and create more studios.

latinillusion811739d ago

I agree that this one should be then end of Joel and Ellies story but the game has too much potential for that to be the end of the series. The second one should maybe.tell his.brothers side and maybe have Joel and Ellie make a guest appearance.
