After Naughty Dog stole the show at PlayStation Experience with the announcement of The Last of Us Part 2 and gave us a deeper look at the game during their panel, including listing Ellie as the playable character, we were steamrolled with some a one-two punch of bad news-good news.

First and foremost, co-creator and director of The Last of Us Bruce Straley will not be returning for The Last of Us Part 2. But belay that share button for just a minute! Bruce Straley is not leaving Naughty Dog, or the gaming industry as a whole, he's just taking a break. 

"Bruce recently decided to take some much deserved time off after shipping two critically acclaimed games in the last few years. He’s looking forward to returning to the studio soon and jumping back in on his next project.” (Kotaku)

Okay, now get those share buttons ready. Halley Gross, the writer and story editor on Westworld steps in to co-write The Last of Us Part 2. For those who don't know, Westworld is the latest masterpiece HBO series that was just renewed for a Season Two

Gross is a very talented writer as seen by her work on Westworld but more importantly, she knows how to write characters and emotional story, which is the lifeblood of The Last of Us.
