HBO is evidently arranging up to eight seasons of The Last of Us. That is… befuddling, assuming valid. The initial two games were loaded with activity and show, yet not the entirety of that can (or ought to) be moved over to the TV series.
HBO is hoping to imitate the accomplishment of Game of Thrones, however it’s profoundly sketchy whether such a methodology would work for The Last of Us — truly outstanding and most develop IPs in gaming history. They can loosen up the story and take it in a wide range of headings, however it’s questionable whether they ought to.
“We talked at length that Season 1 of The Last of Us series is going to be the first game. As far as the superficial things, like should a character wear the same plaid shirt or the same red shirt? They might or might not appear in it; that’s way less important to us than getting to the core of who these people are and the core of their journey. Things sometimes stay pretty close. It’s funny to see my dialogue there from the games in HBO scripts. And sometimes they deviate greatly to much better effect because we are dealing with a different medium,” said co-creator Neil Druckmann during a recent interview with IGN.
HBO is very much aware of exactly how deep and rich with potential the source material is by its vibes. Ideally, this implies the people running the entire activity will dive further than any time in recent memory and uncover invigorating new storylines and ways for the story to grow instead of endeavor it on a shallow level.
We’ll need to keep a watch out. There’s a reason for optimism perceiving how Neil Druckmann and Craig Mazin’ll compose it, maybe most popular for his work on HBO’s Chernobyl.
