TLoU part 2 will not have multiplayer

Forums - Sony Discussion - TLoU part 2 will not have multiplayer

Called it.

"If the vice-president at Naughty Dog says that there's no multiplayer in The Last of Us - Part II, then there's no multiplayer. It's that simple. Why else risk a blowback? If the multiplayer component internally is planned to release at a later date, don't you think they would've come out and said that instead of upsetting their fanbase?

Personally I think the single player- and multiplayer components became equally ambitious and they had to scale back. Now that doesn't necessarily mean the multiplayer component got canceled - I mean it could, but I don't think so - what I choose to believe, is that Naughty Dog has decided to make it its own thing, 'a standalone multiplayer game set in the world of The Last of Us', which will release 1-1½ years after The Last of Us - Part II.

2013: The Last of Us
2014: The Last of Us: Left Behind (standalone DLC)

2016: Uncharted 4: A Thief's End
2017: Uncharted: The Lost Legacy (standalone DLC)

  • "Uncharted: The Lost Legacy is a new adventure in the series starring Chloe Frazer. The game will be offered as both a stand-alone title and as part of the Uncharted 4 season pass---though you only have until December 13th to purchase the season pass or the Digital Deluxe version of the game which comes with the season pass."

2020: The Last of Us - Part II
2021: Untitled The Last of Us multiplayer game"

I'm disappointed. I liked multiplayer in TLOU very much. I'm less hyped now. 7 years after the first game and they can't include a multiplayer mode? Maybe the PS5 version will include one. :(


Please Watch/Share this video so it gets shown in Hollywood.

Yay, that means no multiplayer trophies!

Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Why dont they do both? Its a shame because my best type of games offer both a quality and single player option.
Games like TLOU which i have enjoyed are normally 1 or maybe 2 solid playthroughs but after that you hit the MP. Without a MP mode it limits you alot.

So it’s not cancelled. They’re making it it’s own thing.

isn’t this what people wanted. No more half baked multiplayer modes just so they can add some MTs or loot boxes?

No offense, but Gears is no The Last of Us. 

Truer words have never been spoken. 

Correct, Gears offers both a great SP and MP game. TLOU2 will only offer one of them which is a damn shame as i like both SP and MP modes in big games.

The game will be void of microtransactions then? It would make up for the in your face progressiveness they try to rub under everyones noses. Traditionalism at its purest. Maybe ill even buy it at release then.

Hunting Season is done...

.. and I'm willing to bet that The Last of Us - Part II will be a better game overall than Gears 5 - regardless of no multiplayer component. The Last of Us is a different kind of beast. Don't compare the two.

Nice! Glad to hear it’s not canceled. Heard someone else give a theory that TLoUp2 will be re-released for the ps5 launch with the multiplayer included, and this seems likely. This would be a smart move. The only thing that would have been smarter would be if Sony made the initial launch of TLoUp2 for ps5. 

I would only play the SP anyway, so no big deal for me. Sucks for the people who loved it in the first one and wanted it in this though.
