The Last of Us is one of the best games of last generation and regarded by many as being the greatest game of all time. It takes the whole ‘zombie apocalypse’ idea and twists it on its head, instead delivering a very beautiful, touching narrative which focuses on people and the lengths they’re willing to go to both survive and to protect the ones they care about. Ever since the announcement of The Last of Us: Part II (which is ominously reminiscent of The Godfather: Part II), fans have been desperate for new information. A small piece of information has come out that The Last of Us Part II playtest has been completed.

Thanks to Troy Baker, the voice of Joel, we now have a small tidbit as to what stage of development the game is in. At a panel at MCM Comic Con Birmingham alongside co-star Nolan North, who voices David in the game, Troy Baker revealed that a playtest was recently completed and that the game looks amazing and tells an incredible story.

Even though a recent playtest was completed doesn’t mean the game is nearing the end of its development cycle though. This is only one crucial step in moving towards working out the various bugs and kinks and seeing what works and what doesn’t work. We’ll find out more at E3 2019 in all likelihood, but with Sony already having a huge slate of amazing first-party games releasing this year, The Last of Us: Part II probably won’t release until 2019 at the earliest.
