Gustavo Santaolalla, a well-known composer who worked for the video game series The Last of Us, may have revealed that Sony plans to release a Director’s Cut version or remaster of Part 2 for PlayStation 5, an improved version that will contain new features. Check out all the information below.
The Last of Us 2 Remaster for PS5 Leaked by Composer
During a Spanish interview with the YouTube channel BLENDER, the host mentioned how he loved seeing a character with the features of the composer in the game (for those who missed it, Santaolalla is found in Jackson in the first chapter of The Last of Us Part 2, in a rocking chair playing the banjo and with a dog nearby). At that point, Santaolalla revealed that in a new version of the game, the rumored Director’s Cut, players will be able to interact with his character and request that he play particular songs. The composer later stated that he is not allowed to say more on the matter.
For some months now, rumors have started circulating about a Director’s Cut of The Last of Us Part 2, a new version of the game converted to make the most of all the potential of the most recent Sony console, both in terms of graphics and in terms of performance, being natively programmed for PS5 rather than being a simple port of the PS4 version.
As was the case with Ghost of Tsushima, it is very likely that, if such a version is released, it will be available as a simple upgrade at a reduced price for those who already own the base game.
Considering the success of the HBO TV series, with 24 Emmy nominations, and after bringing Part 1 to PC and Steam Deck, making a Director’s Cut could be a great way to not only enhance the already excellent PS5 version but also to bring The Last of Us Part 2 outside of Sony consoles, taking advantage of the franchise’s renewed popularity to attract a larger audience.
We are therefore awaiting official announcements, which are now increasingly likely to be expected.
