Laura Bailey confessed during her participation in Grounded II, a behind-the-scenes documentary about the production of The Last of Us 2, that some of the public threatened to kill her. Not only her, but her newborn son at the time was also a victim of virtual attacks from this part of the community.

The worst were the heaviest death threats that got through the filter and they made sure they weren't from anyone who lived near me. They threatened my son who was born during all of this and yes, it was difficult. But, you know, more than anything it taught me to keep my distance.

Abby's actress ended up suffering these attacks because of the first hours of gameplay, where the character was responsible for ending Joel's life. What motivated her was the fact that Ellie's guardian had murdered her father, the doctor in charge of finding a cure for the cordyceps infection.

When taking Ellie from the Vagalumes hospital, Joel took the doctor's life and thought that life would go on peacefully. For this reason, many fans of the franchise were angry with Naughty Dog and Abby, and ended up taking out their frustration in a completely unbalanced way on the actress.

The Last of Us 2 would be open world and “kind of Bloodborne”

Still in the design phase of The Last of Us 2, Naughty Dog considered making the game as an open world game with strong inspirations from Bloodborne. Check out more information here!
