The Last of Us DLC Featuring Ellies Mom Ain't Arrived

The Last of Us DLC Featuring Ellies Mom Ain't Arrived ...

Neil Druckmann, co-president of Naughty Dog, has revealed that the studio was once considering the The Last of Us DLC with Ellie's mother. Apparently, the DLC almost happened, but then things "fell apart."

Ellie's mother wasn't able to get into The Last of Us DLC, but she'll be in the show.

Druckmann said he's looking forward to Ellie's mom Anna appearing in HBO's The Last of Us TV series later in the season. Ashley Johnson, an original Ellie actor, will play Anna.

Druckmann explained that he had written a short story after we had already shipped the game. "It was supposed to be an animated short, but it fell apart and didn't come to be." There was a moment when we thought we'd make it into DLC, but it slipped apart.

Druckmann seemed to never give up on the possibility of additional content. He brought it up in an interview with HBO showrunner Craig Mazin, who was immediately attracted to the idea of introducing her via the TV series.

Druckmann said: "I brought it up to Craig, who was immediately enthused by it, or as he would say, 'activated." "We brought it to life in the most beautiful and poetic way."

Johnson plays Anna in a "poetic way."
