New information on The Last of Us Part 3 has reportedly been leaked over the weekend by two internet tipsters known for their scoops on Marvel TV shows and movies.
While Naughty Dog itself is keeping its plans for the series close to its chest, leaker DanielRPK revealed that Part 3 will introduce five new characters – Lucas, Mason, Val, Ezra, and Gracie. These five are reportedly part of a group of “scavengers” surviving on the outskirts of a post-apocalyptic city and using a Victorian house as their base. Lucas, an “affable” character, develops a relationship with another young scavenger and will have a turn to show his dark side. Mason, a former soldier, must choose between his loyalty to other characters in the group when Val gets put in charge, with Val being the alleged leader of this group of survivors. Meanwhile, Ezra appears to be some sort of antagonist, with DanielRPK reporting that they want to take over the house from Val.
It is important to note that these leaks are unconfirmed, but they do provide some insight into what fans can expect from The Last of Us Part 3. Leaker ViewerAnon has also claimed that “major filming” for Part 3 will begin as soon as this year. The game’s developer, Naughty Dog, has previously stated that it is open to developing Part 3, but only if they can come up with a compelling story that has a universal message and statement about love, as it did with Parts 1 and 2. The Last of Us Part 2 was praised for its storytelling, which focused on the relationship between Ellie and Abby, and it seems that the next installment will continue to explore Ellie’s story.

While the leaks about Part 3 are exciting, Naughty Dog has also been working on a standalone multiplayer game set in The Last of Us universe. However, the development of this game has hit some roadblocks, with reports that employees have been reallocated to other projects. Despite this setback, Naughty Dog has promised that it is working on a brand new single-player experience in addition to The Last of Us Multiplayer, although it is not known whether this is a new IP or set in the world of The Last of Us.
