The Last of Us 2 had a darker ending
The plot of The Last of Us 2 was very controversial, and most importantly - cruel and dark. However, it became known that its original version was much darker than the one we have. This was revealed for Game informer by game writer Neil Druckmann and lead storytelling Holly Gros.
This news contains critical spoilers for the game.
In the original ending, Ellie and Abby face off in battle, but eventually let go of each other and disperse. But initially, the developers stuck with the idea that Abby should die at the hands of Ellie in the end. According to Drukmenn, they considered many script changes, but the ending with the death of the second heroine of the game remained unchanged. The situation was influenced by the children she looked after - Yara and Lev. After it was decided to keep Leo alive, this decision became a powerful argument in order to change the fate of Abby in the script.
Druckmann also says that the moment when Ellie decides to save Abby's life is symbolic, since it shows that there is still humanity inside her, instilled in her by Joel, which is hidden behind a thirst for revenge.

The leadership's worldview could not but reflect on the female characters, towards whom marketers and Askoe himself were biased. They promoted the idea that female characters were harder to sell.
