HBO’s adaptation of the popular gaming franchise The Last Of Us has continued for quite some time, as we got set photos teasing a very game-accurate depiction of a post-apocalypse city. It has been a bit quiet on the series’s development since, but it seems that Neil Druckmann has wrapped up his work on the series, as the game director also took on the challenge of directing an episode. He took to Twitter to share that he finished work in Canada and was heading back to Naughty Dog Studios.
This doesn’t mean production has wrapped completely. We don’t know how many episodes the game director was meant to tackle. So, it’s likely that he finished up his final shot before returning to whatever project his studio is currently tackling. Still, it’s great to see that The Last of Us is still going strong and there’s a good chance we might get some more details soon as they are finishing up production on some of the episodes. Of course, we still don’t have an exact release date but there’s a good chance they are eyeing a late 2022 release. It also depends on how much post-production work is necessary to bring the more fantastical elements, like the fungal-infected zombies, to life.
