The Last of Us Part 2 Composer Says the Game Is “Coming Very Soon”

While on stage in Kuwait, composer Gustavo Santaolalla said The Last of Us Part 2 would be coming very soon to loud cheers.

With so many rumors circulating on whether The Last of Us Part 2 will release in 2019 or if it’ll be 2020, here’s another little tidbit to send your brain into another mini-meltdown, especially if you’re a big fan of the upcoming sequel by Naughty Dog. The Last of Us Part 2 deserves every bit of hype it receives, even if most of them are indeed rumors, due to the unprecedented fact that we just can’t wait to get our hands on it!

A post on Reddit has added fuel to the already burning fire by posting a clip of the well known The Last of Us composer Gustavo Santaolalla while he took the stage in Kuwait to play out a few tunes to his captivated audience. Whether he meant to talk so openly about the title or not, he did state that The Last of Us Part 2 would “be coming very soon” – of course, the crowd broke into a very loud cheer at this apparent news straight from the mouth of the composer.

Gustavo didn’t obviously indulge in a release date at all and we have to keep in mind that “coming soon” could just mean it’ll be in the next year or so, but I think we can all hope that he has the inside knowledge for it to mean, quite literally, soon being this year. I think the only time eager fans will really ever know, is when it comes from the mouth of Naughty Dog themselves.

Towards the end of last year, director Neil Druckmann took to Twitter to announce that The Last of Us Part 2‘s “most complicated and heartwrenching scene” had been shot, but again not much more information was released *curses Neil silently under my breath*

Along with some details that the title will contain character customization and HBO’s Westworld writer and The Last Of Us Part 2‘s co-writer Halley Gross getting a character part in the sequel, we can only hold out in the hopes of getting some solid news from the horse’s mouth at some stage this year – as always, we will be right there reporting on it!
