The Last of Us, a phenomenon in the world of videogames
In 2013, one of the best stories remembered in the recent history of video games was born. The Last of Us, a producer developed by Naughty dog and distributed by Sony, he presented us with an apocalyptic story in which we accompanied Joel and Ellie, two survivors of a pandemic that has swept the United States, turning human beings into cannibal creatures.
Actually the game was announced two years before (at the end of 2011), generating since then a fairly high expectation. It was not be for lowerly. The person in charge of the title was none other than Naughty Dog, who already had in his record two games of fantastic reputation as they are Crash Bandicoot Y Uncharted.
Once launched, the June 14th, it was confirmed that all the hype It was more than deserved. The Last of Us It became a real phenomenon, praised by critics specialized and applauded by fans. The most notable possibly of the whole set was his story, quite well spun and with a narrative among the characters that catches the player practically since the start of the game.
Such is the weight of the story in this title that it is not surprising that someone has noticed precisely what counts to get the most out of it. How? Well, with a television series that has just been confirmed.
With HBO and the creator of Chernobyl
The American medium The Hollywood Reporter He has been in charge of giving the exclusive. As they indicate, HBO will be in charge of supporting this new project that will have nothing more and nothing less than with the creator and co-producer of Chernobyl, Craig Mazin.
Knowing that Mazin is behind this idea leaves expectations very high. If the director maintains the originality and essence that he knew how to print in the series based on the events in Chernobyl, we can trust that we will have a great product in the streaming content catalog.
It is not the only notable presence. Neil Druckmann, the writer and creative director of the video game, will also be involved in the entire process, thus ensuring that the magic of the story is maintained (or so we hope, of course). This has been confirmed in his official Twitter account:
I can’t believe we get to team up with one of my favorite writers to bring Ellie and Joel’s journey to HBO. https://t.co/GNsl0sUVSK

At the moment we do not have more details of the series (beyond that Sony Pictures Television and PlayStation Productions are also in the garlic), since, as we indicated, the project is in its early stages of development. Even so, it is still news that a video game like this will make the leap to the small screen. One more example, no doubt, of how well things are being done in the industry jugona (remember that Uncharted It will also have series, with Antonio Banderas) and the great commitment that content platforms maintain in making original projects as well.
What do you want to know more.
