The Last of Us 2 takes place five years after the events of the first game. Ellie and Joel are older and appear to be living in a civilized enclave of people where they’re safe to pursue normal human activities. But the Clicker menace is still happening and there are rogue bandits and other hostile forces outside of this community.
The rest of the story details are still under wraps, though the most recent trailer seems to show Ellie setting off on a revenge journey.
The Last of Us 2 was delayed to May 29, 2020, but that’s just a few months away. Read IGN’s Last of Us 2 hands-on preview for our impressions of the first two hours of the game, or check out IGN’s Last of Us 2 wiki for everything else we know about the game so far.
