The Last of Us Part 2 launched with a bang back in June 2020, doing a few things to rile up the community through its storytelling. While the game itself played well and offered some anxiety-inducing encounters, there was one thing fans didn’t get – multiplayer mode.
Speaking on Naughty Dog’s official blog, Rochelle Snyder, the studio’s comms manager celebrated The Last of Us Day before switching over to talk about multiplayer.
“Yeah, that’s lovely and great Naughty Dog, but what are you doing with The Last of Us right now?”
“In short, we’re working on it – we see the community comments as many of you clamor for multiplayer and want updates. For now, we’ll say that we love what the team is developing and want to give them time to build out their ambitious project, we’ll reveal more when it’s ready!” says Snyder. “To that end, we’ve been busy growing our team inside the kennel since The Last of Us Part 2 launched and are currently in full swing of hiring for MP-related positions (hint hint), so if you or somebody you know qualifies for anything you see on our jobs page, apply!”
What is left to be seen is whether or not this new multiplayer mode is the one promised to be a part of The Last of Us Part 2 or an entirely new experience.
