The team is going to change its leadership a bit.
The studio announced that they have promoted Neil Druckmann to their vice president, but he is going to continue working on The Last of Us: Part II as its creative director. The company’s president is still Evan Wells. The studio didn’t stop here, as they also confirmed who Joel’s and Ellie’s adventures directors will be.
The Last of Us: Part II‘s directors will be Anthony Newman and Kurt Magenau. They both joined the team during the development of Uncharted 2, and since then, they both have been „instrumental in leading the design department.” The game’s two designers have also been named: they will be Emilia Shatz and Richard Cambier.
We can’t wait for Sony to talk more about the game at E3. It was announced at 2016’s PlayStation Experience, so by June, there should be some gameplay to show of The Last of Us‘ sequel…
