The Last of Us Star Teases Tommy's Fate in Game's Possible Part 3

Jeffrey Pierce already made his debut as Perry in HBO's The Last of Us series but gamers still know him as the voice of Tommy in the original game. So is there any chance we'll get to see more of Joel's brother in a third title? Pierce teased Tommy's fate when he does return in a possible The Last of Us Part III.

In The Last of Us Part II, Tommy was understandably broken after Joel was killed by Abby. Although he goes after the woman, Abby manages to escape. Tommy's actions lead to his wife Maria deciding they should spend some time apart.

So what could be happening to Tommy by the time we meet him again in The Last of Us Part 3? Jeffrey Pierce told GamesRadar that it would all depend on Neil Druckmann and the rest of the team at Naughty Dog.

"I think one of my favorite things about Neil and the culture of Naughty Dog is that they've said very clearly, if we can't find the compelling stories to tell within that world, we don't care how much money it would make, we're not gonna do it – which in this sort of day and age is just about unheard of," Pierce said.

"There’s a lot of potential for what Tommy would try to do, but he's also pretty severely handicapped by the time the second game is over in a very realistic fashion," he continued. "So his ability to exert force in any way is certainly compromised. I'd be really interested to see how Neil, if he wants to tell that story, how he handles it, how he develops it, and what it grows into. I think if they do something, it'll be great. And if they don't, then I think it's put to get put to bed still as the most powerful game that's ever been done."

The Last of Us Part 3 has not yet been officially announced. In the meantime, the sixth episode of the HBO series premieres on Sunday, February 19, 2023.
