Just confirmed by Neil at the PSX panel. Also, she's 19 in the game. Interesting. I really enjoyed her part in the first game, and I can't wait to see where this goes.

The game's theme is 'hate'.

A main female lead on a AAA game. Oh the comments will be delicious.

EDIT: People seem to be misinterpreting my post.

There will be lots of crying about the fact that its a female lead, is what I meant. I don't get it either, but there will.

I don't think he was unlikable at all. What game did you play? The character made tough choices. There is no black and white.

Oh, neat. It's a nice change of pace now the Ellie is probably more competent by this point in the timeline.

Also, wasn't it Joel who walked in?

Umm, it's going on a lot now. Horizon? Chloe in the new Uncharted standalone game? Hellblade too, even though that's not exactly AAA.

Or maybe Joel is dead and she is imagining him and trying to kill the people who killed him (probably the fireflies), so the hate isn't really towards joel but the complete opposite.

They're probably aiming for Fall 2018, but I could see summer 2019 being the actual release date

You'll play as Joel at some point, that's 100% guaranteed. Probably when he gets killed. Hopefully it's early in the game.

Druckmann will try to say otherwise though. Remember when Ellie was not going to be playable at all in The Last of Us Part I according to them? Yeah.

Also 19 :o I didn't realize it was such a big time gap. How old is she in TLOU again?

With Gravity Rush 2, Horizon and the Uncharted spinoff having female leads it's great to see how Sony are handling that.

Don't really think many people actually think this way. And specially with a character like Ellie.

All this sounds ace. Naughty Dog having a principal theme is...encouraging? I don't know how to describe it.The Last of Us was a game built on vignettes, so writing the script with a theme in mind probably helps with structure.

I understood Joel. I didn't like him. What morally redeeming traits he has are derived from his relationship with Ellie and Tess and even then he gets rough (such as the end of the 1st game). I think that's fine and dandy. But I hope they avoid turning Ellie into Joel 2.0. That's all I ask for.

Maybe I worded it wrongly. Neil said that we played as Joel in the first, but here we play as Ellie.

We'll find out Joel actually died in Fall and Ellie's been grieving the entire time. She's now a writer.

I hope you can choose Joel when they are doing things together. I liked Ellie in the last game, but the fistfisting Joel had was an aspect that made him best for me. So I really hope we still get to play alot of him also.
