Rumor The Last of Us 2 Actor Possibly Teasing Abby DLC

"There are many fans hoping that a recent social media post by actor Derek Phillips of The Last of Us 2 points to a possible Abby DLC for the game.

For some time, fans of The Last of Us 2 – the Naughty Dog masterpiece available exclusively on PS4 consoles – have been hoping for good news about the possible arrival of new content for the game. Now, a recent social media post by actor Derek Phillips may have rekindled hopes for an alleged DLC in the pipeline.

Phillips, who played Abby’s father and surgeon in the Naughty Dog title, shared a snapshot of himself on Twitter on his way back to work. Wearing his motion-capture gear, the actor simply stated: “Back to work!!!”

Naughty Dog has already stated that no DLC is planned for the sequel, although we know that a standalone multiplayer game will arrive in the future. However, that hasn’t stopped fans from speculating, and many people assume that the tweet refers to some unannounced Abby DLC coming to The Last of Us 2.

Abby isn’t exactly the most beloved character from the latest game of Naughty Dog, and players have flocked to the tweet in hopes that a DLC for the character will never arrive.

Further fuel on the fire for the potential Abby DLC was thrown directly by Neil Druckmann, creative director of The Last of Us 2 and vice president of Naughty Dog, liking Phillips’ tweet.

If there WAS story DLC it'd make much more sense to focus on someone that ISN'T Abby, lol. I mean, she made up majority of the game.

Maybe he's helping with mocap for the multiplayer? I dunno, this feels like a stretch regardless. He's an actor, this could literally be for anything. Unless I'm missing something and that specific outfit or image points to ND.

Quick to jump the shark assuming its Abbey DLC. Its probably MP related.

Unless Druckmann wants to double up vs the fans of the original :D

I liked Abby but this will not go over well. They should do a Joel and Tommy prequel that takes place right after the outbreak. Give a little olive branch to the people but if he is like me I would just double down on the direction the game took. I loved the original and love the sequel even more so Neil did not insult every fan.

Why does it have to be DLC for TLOU2 and not a new game. ND uses the same actors all the time.

Awful news. Naughty Dogs HQ will explose from all the rage. No one wants that pig shit unless you can torture and dismember her all kinds of ways.

And how da fuq do you expect that to happen?

That would be pandering and fan service. It isn't going to happen.

With a prequel. It's the only way to salvage this series.
