A huge part of the mood and atmosphere of The Last of Us is the minimal, emotion-driven soundtrack that accompanies Joel and Ellie's journey, so fans should be happy to see Santaolalla involved. There's no timeframe for when we can expect this show but it will likely be some time, as Druckmann is still working on The Last of Us Part II, which is currently scheduled to release on May 29, 2020.
How far will Ellie go?
The wait is almost over. Ellie's harrowing journey looks to take her on the bloody path of revenge, but against what we're not sure of yet. Whatever the situation, Joel is there to have her back.
