As Joel was not seen in the trailer, fans assumed that Ellie would be the only playable character in The Last of Us Part 2. This was the same claim as the game's creative director, Neil Druckmann, said in an interview via Game Revolution. But in a different interview with French publication JeuxActu and Naughty Dog co-lead designer Emilia Schatz, the latter hinted that there might be "more playable characters" to come.
"At this point, we're just ready to show Ellie as a playable character," Schatz confirmed. However, she later explained that it "may change in the future," though they are not yet ready to discuss things about it.
