Naughty Dog has generally remained tight-lipped regarding The Last of Us 2, although new information appears to have emerged. According to a recent Reddit post, the upcoming sequel will play a fundamental role within the upcoming PlayStation 5 reveal.
Suffice to say, there’s no way to confirm this information. Although some of the details seem rather plausible, Reddit usually isn’t the most reliable of sources.
Previous rumors indicate that a PlayStation Meeting event is scheduled for February 12th, 2020, which will supposedly entail new details about the highly anticipated PlayStation 5 console. The Last of Us 2 is also reportedly touted to launch
“Sony will be using The Last of Us Part II to show the world the features PS5 has to offer,” says Reddit user TheTom8. In particular, it appears as though the game will showcase the console’s unbelievable graphics.
The Last of Us 2 will demonstrate phenomenal and stunning visuals while exploring both dynamic lighting and graphics never seen before. This all comes courtesy of Naughty Dog’s new engine, reportedly slated to display what’s on the horizon with Sony’s next-generation console.

In comparison to Uncharted Lost Legacy, facial expressions and polygons in The Last of Us 2 reportedly reached out four times more. Considering Lost Legacy had impressive visuals for its generation, perhaps we should get our hopes up. That is, of course, depending on the legitimacy of recent leaks.
These aren’t the only changes on the horizon, however. Transitions between cutscenes appear to have also received some integral improvements since the original Last of Us. “It’s like you’re still on a cutscene when it’s actual gameplay,” describes the Reddit user.
Developers Naughty Dog have also been working
Although it seems as if The Last of Us 2 will be available on the PS5, Naughty Dog has reaffirmed multiple times that it’s also coming to PlayStation 4. It’s important to note that some of the rumored details are far from confirmed, although they are certainly enough to get excited about.
