After the exciting announcement at PSX 2016 that Naughty Dog are working on The Last of Us II, things have gone from great to fantastic with the news that helping co-write the script alongside Neil Druckmann, is Halley Gross. She is one of the minds behind the smash hit tv show Westworld, so knows a thing or two about drama.
Gross is also credited with writing for the show Banshee, and Neil Druckmann took to Twitter to share the news to fans. He describes Halley as his “kickass co-writer” so its clear the pair are working well together on the project.
Druckmann, writing on the PlayStation Blog, tells fans that there is still a long road ahead before the game sees release. The studio just couldn’t wait any longer before giving us a glimpse at what is to come, it is so exciting to them.
With the writing duo of Druckmann and Gross working together on this new game set years after the original story, but keeping the characters of Ellie and Joel at the forefront of the action, we can surely expect drama and suspense at every turn.
