Will There Be Last Of Us 3?

High Possibility Sequel Will Be Made

Neil Druckmann, the director and writer for The Last Of Us 2 have hinted that there may be a possible spin off with the multiplayer section in mind in the future. This may expand the existing story of the Last Of Us 2, and build on top of it as a spinoff story.

Unanswered Questions Remain

In the ending, a lot of unanswered questions remain for what happens to several of the main characters of the game. Where did Abby and Lev escape, being exiled from their groups? Where did Dina & J.J. head off to? What happened to Tommy? And most of all where will Ellie, broken and empty, go from here?
