While you may have grabbed all of The Last of Us Part II trophies, your adventure may not be over just yet. Rumors have begun to pour out about The Last of Us Part 3 and its possible story and casting. Will TLOU Part 3 make it onto our best PS5 games list?

The Last of Us Part 3 will allegedly see Ellie return

The Last of Us Part 3 is seeing multiple rumors emerge from various sources. Over on Twitter ViewerAnon discuss motion capture for Ellie, while a Patreon post from DanielRPK talks about certain story elements and roles being cast. All of this is speculation for now until Naughty Dog announces otherwise, so take a few grains of salt with you on this one.

ViewerAnon usually focuses on movie leaks, however, they have claimed that The Last of Us Part 3 will star Ellie in a main role and she will be "as important in The Last of Us Part 3 as she was in Part 2." ViewerAnon does go on to say that it is early days for TLOUP3 and many story details are up in the air and could be changed. Ellie being a central focus is likely to be the case, her story feels incomplete due to the ambiguous ending of her walking away into the forest at the end of TLOUP2.

ViewerAnon further adds that: "The Last of Us Part 3 is in development and others are finally noticing. Major filming is happening this year." ViewerAnon was then quizzed if they meant motion capture to which they responded with: "However you define it, they are rolling cameras and recording audio as well."
Moving on to DanielRPK, images have emerged online through ResetEra that show a post from DanielRPK's Patreon. We won't be linking the images in this article, however, we can confirm that we have seen them with our own eyes. The Patreon post outlines possible casting roles and stories that we will see within The Last of Us Part 3 upon its release. Part of the plot will allegedly center around a group of scavengers attempting to survive on the outskirts of a city in a Victorian house — what city and location this is are not specified. There is internal conflict between the scavengers about who the leader should be and various other aspects.

The casting is apparently for these aforementioned scavengers (of which there are five). There are two female roles with Gracie and Val (the leader) and three male roles with Lucas, Mason, and Ezra. It looks as though a lot of conflicts will spark from Ezra's character as he supposedly has an issue with Val's leadership and wants to take the house from her.
That's the bulk of the information that DanielRPK posted to his Patreon, though, none of this is confirmed in the slightest. We hope you are still clutching tight to those grains of salt we told you to take. While we are most likely a ways off until Naughty Dog announces anything about The Last of Us Part 3, these murmurings have got us excited. I for one would love to see Ellie return and get a conclusion that feels worthy of her character and experiences so far.

So, that's all of The Last of Us Part 3 leaks and rumors that are circulating right now. What do you make of all of this? Think any of it could be true? If you want a good read, check out Lee's The Last of Us Part 1 review for more TLOU content.
