With all of that said, we are finally getting a documentary that shows how the game came to be. All of those controversial moments will be explained via this documentary and how they came to be. During the development of the game, Naughty Dog hired a team of filmmakers to document the development of The Last of Us Part 2. These people followed the studio's journey from 2016 up until the studio shut down in early 2020 as a result of the COVID pandemic. At this point, the game still had a few months of development left, so they didn't get to document arguably the most important months of the game's development where everything fully comes together and teams are left crunching on the game. However, the documentary will seemingly have some pieces that retroactively talk about these moments and the reception to the game as a whole. Grounded II: Making The Last of Us Part II will release on February 2nd at 9AM PT/12PM PT on YouTube and for owners of The Last of Us Part II Remastered in-game via a free update. This update will also add new skins for Ellie and Abby.
