I'm sure the next game will release around the same time as the TV show.
I dunno. Maybe. I think TloU 1 Part 1 is more happenstance than anything calculated. And if Twisted Metal is a live service title as rumoured, I doubt Sony is going to release it any faster if it's not ready.
But ideally it launches around if not after the show. I look forward to seeing what they have planned for the game.
