“This will start a few decades later than the first one,” Goldsman said. “I’m obsessed with The Last of Us, where we see the world just after the apocalypse, but also after a lapse of 20 to 30 years. You see how the earth reclaims the world, and there is something beautiful about it. of the man who walks away from being the main tenant, what’s going on? That will be especially visual in New York. I don’t know if they’ll go up to the Empire State Building, but the possibilities are endless” (via GamesRadar).
