The Last of Us Almost Had DLC About Ellie's Mom

It didn't happen, but we will see her in HBO's show.

While HBO's The Last of Us show is collecting praise from viewers, Naughty Dog's co-president Neil Druckmann revealed that the original game could have had a DLC featuring Ellie's mom Anna.

Speaking to Variety, he shared that he had written a short story about her after the game's release, which was supposed to first become an animated short and after it didn't happen – a DLC, but this idea also fell apart.

Thankfully, we will get a chance to see Anna in the TV series "late in the season".

"In our conversations, I brought it up to Craig [Mazin] and he was immediately excited by it, or as he would say “activated.” We brought it to life in the most beautiful, poetic way, which is Ashley Johnson playing Ellie’s mom and she was the original actor for Ellie."

Meanwhile, the first two episodes of the show keep breaking viewership records, making Last of Us Part I sales skyrocket.
