The Last Of Us Part 2 Will Not Have Multiplayer

The Last of Us is most remembered for its gripping story campaign, but it had a well-loved multiplayer mode as well. The sequel, The Last of Us Part 2, won’t follow in those footsteps, though, as Naughty Dog says it’s focusing purely on the single-player experience with no plans for multiplayer.

It turns out that The Last of Us Part 2 actually won’t have a multiplayer mode, contrary to reports last year saying otherwise. At an event earlier this week, Naughty Dog Lead Game Designer Emilia Schatz confirmed the lack of multiplayer

Lead game designer Emilia Schatz said:

“We’re focusing on a single-player experience, so we’re just making a single-player game for this,”

“We’re focusing on a single-player experience, so we’re just making a single-player game for this,”

This signifies a change of plans, as Naughty Dog had previously confirmed that the multiplayer Factions Mode would be making a return. The team was vague at the time, declining to talk about details.

That doesn’t rule out the possibility that future Naughty Dog games will feature multiplayer modes, though. Newman mentioned in this week’s interview that “attentive readers will have noticed our job postings,” likely referencing open positions for multiplayer roles at the company. The postings don’t detail which games or franchises these positions would be working on.

Despite the removed mode, The Last of Us 2 looks to be a sprawling game, spanning two blu-ray discs. It aims to make you feel bad about killing enemies to reinforce the themes of the story, and that will include killing dogs.

Ellie and Joel return in The Last of Us Part II, only this time it’s an older Ellie who’s the main focus of the story. Now 19, she’s found love in a hopeless place and, it appears, a sense of routine. The group she’s now with has a drill: There are those on horseback who scout routes, document in their log books, and head back if they run into anything too difficult to handle.

Based on the familiar crackling sound, Ellie presumably runs into trouble. Now she’s going after a group (did something happen to her girlfriend, Dina?) and Joel is not about to let her go on her own.

The Last of Us 2 is coming on February 21, 2020
