Folks are awfully jumpy about The Last of Us 2

Sep 17 // Kyle MacGregor
[embed]311178:60409:0[/embed] This isn't the first time this has happened, either. A few months back, Nolan North, speaking at Tampa, Florida's MetroCon, said "I know they’re doing a Last of Us 2," causing a similar stir. However, neither Sony nor Naughty Dog has officially confirmed the existence of a The Last of Us sequel, but judging on how some corners of the Internet have reacted to these potential gaffes, you might have thought the companies distributed a teaser trailer or something of the sort. It makes sense that Sony would want to do a follow-up. The Last of Us was highly acclaimed and presumably made a lot of money; plus, publishers these days don't often go around creating new intellectual properties without aspirations of a potential blockbuster franchise in their eyes. It will probably happen. Someday. Eventually. There are literally billions of reasons for it to. But it isn't confirmed just yet. Not officially. So maybe hold your horses before shouting "THE LAST OF US 2 CONFIRMED" on Twitter or an Internet comment section somewhere. Good lord.
