The Last of Us Part II is Naughty Dog’s Most Ambitious Game, Says Troy Baker

The Last of Us Part II actor Troy Baker comments on how ambitious the game will be.

During his appearance at Manchester Comic-Con, The Last of Us Part II actor Troy Baker discussed the game and how it’s Naughty Dog’s most ambitious to date.

“I can tell you this: it’s hands down the most ambitious game Naughty Dog has ever done for sure,” Baker says. “It’s far larger than I thought was going to be possible.”

Baker also responded to comments that Ellie’s actress, Ashley Johnson, made implying that the game will launch in February 2020.

“I think they’ve probably been smart not to tell us because we can’t slip up and say something stupid. Last time we announced, we slipped,” Baker continues. “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. Everyone 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.”

On top of the game’s rumored release date, reports have come out claiming the game will have four different editions when it launches. In the past, Sony has made comments saying that The Last of Us Part II, Ghost of Tsushima, and Death Stranding will still be PlayStation 4 exclusives. To keep fans busy, PlayStation will be releasing MediEvil on October 25 and Death Stranding on November 8.

Currently, no official release date has been revealed for The Last of Us Part II. For those that haven’t played it, The Last of Us Remastered is available now on PlayStation 4.
