As many gamers are probably aware by now, Naughty Dog is currently in the process of developing The Last of Us Part 2, the follow up to the original game which was a smashing success. As to when the game will be ready remains to be seen, but it seems that the game could be entering the final stages of development.

This is according to a tweet by the game’s co-director Anthony Newman who wrote, “Lot of awesome positions open to help us close out this game… I especially want to highlight the Melee Animator position, I guarantee you will be working on some *dope* animations working with my good friend @Leethul 🗡️💀”

This seems to suggest that development on the game could be nearing the final stages, which in turn means that we can expect to learn more about a potential release date soon. We have heard a couple of different rumors for the game’s release date, such as either being in September or maybe even in October.

It’s probably best not to get your hopes up just yet because as with all development, there can be instances in which a bug is discovered in the last minute and needs to be fixed, leading to potential delays, so don’t hold your breath just yet.
