The Last of Us creators tease ‘beautiful’ Ellie backstory deleted from original game



“The one that shows up very late in the season is Ellie’s mom,” Druckmann confirmed.

“I had written a short story after we had shipped the game already. It was supposed to be an animated short, but it fell apart and didn’t come to be.”

The Last of Us was soon followed by a downloadable expansion (DLC), The Last of Us: Left Behind, in 2014, which explores two different chapters of Ellie’s life before and during the events of the first game.

Ellie’s mother was also nearly included in a similar expansion, but the plans never came to fruition. – ChatGPT autoblogging and content curation plugin for WordPress
