Gamers have been patiently waiting for any “The Last of Us 2” confirmed release date updates.  While Naughty Dog has kept mum about the sequel’s development, several reports have already hinted that the highly anticipated title could be on its way.

As a new report from Hypable suggested, there are hidden “The Last of Us 2” clues in a scene from “Uncharted 4.” A particular poster caught the attention of some keen observers with some claiming that the pregnant woman in the poster is none other than the main protagonist in the first game, Ellie.

Several speculations have started to surface regarding the latest “Uncharted 4” Easter egg.  While some are convinced that the woman is in fact, Ellie, others are suggesting that this might be her mother, Anna.

With this, others are suggesting that instead of a follow-up game, “The Last of Us 2” could actually be a prequel. Hypable also noted that Naughty Dog could take players 20 years back to explore “the initial outbreak and the events” of the first game.

Meanwhile, Creative Director Neil Druckmann previously claimed that despite not having a “The Last of Us 2” confirmed release date as of writing, he has already begun brainstorming for the sequel.

“When Bruce and I moved over to Uncharted 4, we were brainstorming ideas for ‘The Last of Us 2’ with new characters; ideas for TLOU 2 with Joel and Ellie; ideas for a sci-fi game; ideas for a fantasy game, and building prototypes for each one of those ideas,” he said, Segment Next quoted.

Apart from “The Last of Us 2” buzz, speculations are rife online regarding a rumoured “The Last of Us” movie. If rumours are accurate, the new video game title will not be launched until the movie hits theatres.
