The Last of Us Part 3: Rumors and Leaks Shed Light on New Characters and Storylines

Rumors and leaks have started to circulate regarding The Last of Us Part 3, the highly anticipated sequel to Naughty Dog’s post-apocalyptic survival-horror series. Although not officially announced, the success of the first two games and the popularity of the HBO adaptation have led many to believe that a third installment is inevitable.

The Last of Us Part 3 Rumors and Leaks: New Details Emerge About the Highly Anticipated Sequel

Naughty Dog’s next game is confirmed to be a Last of Us multiplayer title, set in San Francisco as a live service game. However, rumors suggest that the game following the multiplayer project could be The Last of Us Part 3 instead of a new IP, with speculation supported by trusted leakers such as ViewerAnon and Daniel Richtman.

According to ViewerAnon, who has accurately leaked information in the past, major filming for The Last of Us 3 is expected to take place this year. They also emphasized that Ellie will be “at least as important” in the third installment. While Ellie is likely to remain the main character, there’s a possibility of introducing a second protagonist similar to Abby from The Last of Us Part 2. It’s important to note that since the game is in early development, story details may still be subject to change.

Another leaker, Daniel Richtman, has shared additional information about The Last of Us 3. According to Richtman, the game will introduce five new characters: Lucas, Mason, Val, Ezra, and Gracie. Lucas is described as an “affable” character who develops a relationship with another young scavenger and showcases a darker side. Mason is a former soldier who faces a dilemma when Val assumes leadership of the group. Ezra appears to be an antagonist who seeks to take over the house from Val.

As for returning characters, it’s unclear if Abby and Lev from The Last of Us Part 2 will make appearances in the third game. However, Ellie’s role is expected to be significant, maintaining her importance from the previous installment.

It’s worth mentioning that the development of The Last of Us Part 3 is likely to take several years, and fans will have to wait for official announcements or further updates from Naughty Dog. While the studio has expressed openness to continuing the series, they want to ensure the story maintains a compelling narrative and universal message about love, similar to the previous games.

As these leaks are not official confirmations, it’s advisable to approach them with some skepticism.
