Neil Druckmann, a co-creator of The Last of Us, has stated why he doesn’t care about the hatred directed at The Last Of Us Part 2 Conflict. Due in large part to leaked information that was misunderstood, TLoU’s second chapter had a difficult time in the months before its release.
It didn’t help that a beloved character from the audience died in the game’s first act and that gamers had to spend significant time playing as that character’s killer. While many people praised Naughty Dog’s storytelling risks in this respect, others were upset by the company’s direction. Unfortunately, most of it resulted in online criticism of the project’s cast and crew.
Those familiar with the games are already wondering about the story and characters that will be included in the second season of HBO’s TLoU.
Creator Neil Druckmann discusses The Last Of Us Part 2 conflict:
During a recent interview with GQ, Neil Druckmann brought up this subject, telling the magazine that he didn’t care about the bad response to Part 2. When asked if he believed that television viewers would feel the same way about the upcoming chapter, Druckmann responded, “I guess, to go back to the original [Todd Phillips] statement from [showrunner] Craig [Mazin], which is just I don’t care.
We have no control over how people will respond; it will be how it will be. How therefore can we adapt that storyline to the best possible TV show? That issue is what we struggle with daily. Craig Mazin, the show’s creator, also offered his opinion on the possible drama, saying that it is better for viewers to feel nothing than to be moved to hatred or disappointment by the show.
RQuitenothing is currently known about what the duo has in store for The Last of Us Season 2. In part, Mazin told GQ: “To the extent that the tales cause individuals to feel hatred, confusion, or sadness. That’s better than the worst-case scenario, which is indifference, I suppose.
The plot of Part 2 will be told throughout more than one season, but Druckmann and Mazin did not mention this further in the GQ interview. Also, fans can expect the expansion and enhancement of unnamed beats.
