The Last Of Us Part 2 Won’t Be Getting Any DLC
The Last of Us Part 2 might be one of the longest narrative games we’ve played, but fans are already hungry for more after blasting through dozens of hours of story content in the week since the game’s release. However, those hoping for a Left Behind style expansion may want to keep their expectations in check. Speaking on the recently uploaded Kinda Funny Spoiler-cast for Part 2, Naughty Dog Creative Director and Writer Neil Druckmann was definitive on the subject of DLC.
Over the course of the two hour podcast, Druckmann is joined by Ashley Johnson and Troy Baker, who voice Ellie and Joel respectively, over the course of the nearly two-hour podcast. Druckmann’s announcement arrives around the 1-hour, 52-minute mark. Take note, since this is spoiler podcast, it’s highly recommended that gamers check out the podcast only after finishing a play through of the game.
The confirmation that The Last Of Us Part II won’t be getting a DLC doesn’t mean the studio is done with the title, however, as the studio seems to be toying with the idea of a stand-alone multiplayer The Last Of Us game.
Back in September, Naughty Dog noted on Twitter that players will “eventually experience the fruits of our team’s online ambition, but not as part of The Last of Us Part II. When and where it will be realized is still to be determined. But rest assured, we are as big a fan as Factions as the rest of our community and are excited to share more when it’s ready.”
The Last of Us Part II’s ending certainly left room for DLC to follow should Naughty Dog ever change course and decided to put extra content out there. It ended with the cycle of revenge broken, possibly for good this time, but like the last game, there were a lot of lingering questions that went unanswered.
The Last Of Us Part II is available now exclusively on PlayStation 4
