“I’m gonna find… and I’m gonna kill… every last one of them.”
That’s the teaser text for The Last of Us Part 2 on PS4 that Naughty Dog is using to promote the game’s upcoming appearance during Sony’s PlayStation State of Play event on Tuesday.
The tweet from Naughty Dog’s official Twitter account shows a switchblade with the date and time for the State of Play event (September 26 at 1 PM Pacific).

We suspected that The Last of Us Part 2 would be among the new games that Sony intended to promote during the event. Now we have official word that the game will indeed be a part of the show.
The Last of Us is PS3’s swan song. Despite being one of the last titles released on the system, it is among PS3’s top-selling games having sold over 17 million copies.
The Last of Us Part 2 is its sequel. Set five years after the original, the potty-mouthed yet resourceful girl Ellie has grown into a young woman as she steps in as the lead character in Part 2.
The last time we saw Ellie was during the E3 2018 trailer where she had a kiss scene and a deadly encounter with a mysterious cult. We’re not entirely sure what role Joel will play in the story, but hopefully we’ll find out more on Tuesday!
