TLoU part 2 will not have multiplayer

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

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?

The first LoU MP was loaded with MTX and some pay to win elements but what was “half-baked” about it? The MP up until ND went full EA on the MTX was actually incredibly good. Good maps, a cool SOCOM/R6 tactical style gameplay loop, Counter-Strike inspired points system allowing you to buy upgrades and weapons between matches, crafting stuff during a match, it was very nice. 

You speak about it like someone who clearly didn’t play it or has no interest. Which is fine, but no need to talk ignorantly about it.

Anyway I’m glad they’re apparently going to give us MP but I guess it’ll be DLC or stand alone. I wouldn’t pay $60 for a ND single player game. I’ll pay $60 for LoU2 MP depending on how they handle MTX

Typical AAA publisher. Making only half a game but selling it full price.

It was good, but it wasn't Incredible, which is what ND wants to make. Sony said they will be putting even more focus on quality going forward and this just seems like proof of that claim. They could've taken part of the team and put it on MP taking away resources from the Single player, which is what they've done in the past and what other developers do all the time. Instead they've chosen to hire more staff and extend it's development schedule so they can really flesh it out and make it something truly great that can stand on it's own rather than just an obligatory addition to a game. 

How you people are spinning this into a negative is mind boggling. This is a developer making compromises in service of their vision, rather than being like most who compromise their vision.

Predictions (Made July 2019)

LTD: PS4 - 130m, Switch - 110m, XBO - 52m       2019 : PS4 - 15m, Switch - 18.8m, XBO - 4.8m        2020: Switch - 22m (Peak Year)

Switch lite really screwed up my Switch prediction this year! Looks like it's going to be about 19.5m-20m for the Switch in 2019, 14.3m for PS4.

Listen, I'm the last one to be happy about no multiplayer but I'm pretty sure you'd also complain if it did have a "tacked on multiplayer that stole resources from making a good singleplayer campaign".

It sounds like it will be a stand-alone title that takes place in the TLoU universe, sort of like Apex and Titanfall. If this is true, I’m all about it. I’m sure the single player will be amazing, but this news really disappointed me at first because ND has proven several times that they can produce amazing story-based experiences, while still providing a solid multiplayer component. I give them a lot of credit, hence why I was disappointed. But if it really is a matter of delivering an excellent SP first, and then an excellent MP down the road, I can wait. Hopefully this is the case.

Aside from a few hardcores (like people that hang out in gaming forums), I don't think there was much interest in the MP in the first game. So, it makes more sense to use those resources to make the campaign better.

No need to quote and reply to your whole post, we can just agree to disagree. I thought it was incredible. Better than the SP. But it’s hilarious that you think it’s “good” in one post and yet in others you’re very dismissive of it, describing it as obligatory or forced and “tacked on”. 

And idk what you’re going on about with the “you people” bullshit. I said I was disappointed that there would be no MP, I haven’t said anything negative about them making it DLC or stand alone. So save that nonsense for someone else please.

Oh yes, I am certain that you have nothing to do with it :))) I mean, don't get me wrong, but your biases are pretty obvious for anyone who visits this site at least once a week. 

And with this, I invite everyone who doesn't have anything constructive to say on the original topic, to leave the thread. It's getting annoying to have to flush after every MS fanboy that passes through here
