The Last Of Us Part 2 has become the fastest-selling PlayStation 4 exclusive but there are many people who feel that it’s a bad sequel. One of the main reasons many fans are disappointed by Naughty Dog’s second outing is because of Abby. This character is divisive for many reasons, and aside from wanting to know why she’s so buff a lot of people also want to know how old she is. Although her age is never specifically given, we do gather that she’s not much older than Ellie.
If you’re somehow unaware about how controversial and divisive The Last Of Us Part 2 is amongst gamers, there’s a petition circling the internet with demands for a ‘remake‘. This petition claims that the sequel is an insult to fans who had waited seven years for Joel and Ellie’s continuation, and one of the main reasons cited is Abby being a playable protagonist.
For right or wrong, lots of people just don’t like this character thanks to her heinous actions towards someone more beloved. But, away from going into depth about why people can’t stomach her, below you’ll simply discover how old she is.
How old is Abby in The Last Of Us 2?
It’s never said how old Abby is in The Last Of Us Part 2 but she’s believed to be in her early 20s.
With Abby believed to be in her early 20s, this means she’s not much older than Ellie who is 19-years-old in The Last Of Us Part 2.
Naughty Dog’s sequel takes place five years after the events of the original game where Ellie and Abby were both teenagers.
The muscular new character gets shown as a teen in a flashback with her father, Jerry. This flashback takes place not too long before Joel infamously kills him to stop the Fireflies killing Ellie for a vaccine.
Although Abby is shown as a teenager during a flashback with her dad, some people will be surprised that she’s not much older than Ellie because of her size.
Not only that, but the difference between her as a teenager and a young woman is as stark as night and day.
But, despite how much older she appears, Abby is only a few years older than Ellie which means they share many similarities such as not knowing the world before the outbreak.
