“We’re focusing on a single-player experience, so we’re just making a single-player game for this,” stated lead game designer Emilia Schatz in an interview with USgamer. It appears {that a} Sony consultant confirmed to some retailers shortly thereafter that the game will certainly ship and not using a multiplayer mode.

This assertion created some confusion as Naughty Dog members had beforehand indicated that they had been engaged on an extension of The Last of Us‘ Factions multiplayer mode. Not lengthy after Schatz’ assertion began to unfold, Naughty Dog posted an replace on Twitter which (barely) clarifies their place on the matter. 

“As we have said, the [The Last of Us Part 2] single-player marketing campaign is much and away probably the most bold undertaking Naughty Dog has ever undertaken,” reads the statement. “Likewise, as growth started on the evolution of our Factions mode from The Last of Us Part 1, the imaginative and prescient of the group grew past an extra mode that might be included with our huge single-player imaginative and prescient. Wanting to help each visions, we made the tough alternative that The Last of Us Part 2 wouldn’t embrace an internet mode.

Given the game’s launch date, it is solely attainable that you just will not be capable to expertise their “vision” till someday nearer to the rumored launch of the PS5 someday later subsequent yr. 

In any case, we’re completely satisfied to listen to that The Last of Us multiplayer will reside on in some kind. We named that game’s aggressive expertise probably the most underrated multiplayer expertise in gaming historical past, and we would like to see how Naughty Dog expands on it sooner or later.
