We have got plenty of details regarding The Last of Us Part 2 but oddly it seems that the game will not have a multiplayer mode. Fans are very upset because this is a feature that was confirmed at E3 2019.
Naughty Dog’s lead game designer Emilia Schatz confirmed that The Last of Us Part 2 will not have multiplayer. Here is what she had to say regarding the matter:
We’re focusing on a single-player experience, so we’re just making a single-player game for this.
This is very odd indeed keeping in mind that at E3 2019 co-director Anthony Newman mentioned that the game will indeed have a multiplayer mode. The fans are not happy at all and they do want that multiplayer mode that was previously confirmed. Newman talked about the matter in a recent interview and here is what he had to say regarding the matter:
Multiplayer will not be included with The Last of Us Part 2. I know we had kind of announced that [it would have multiplayer], but as the game has developed, it’s become so ambitious, so grand in scope, and so intricate in its complexity, that it really required the full focus of the studio to deliver this single-player experience.
The developer has teased an online game but that will not be The Last of Us Part 2. This could be a spin-off that releases in the future but for now, there is nothing that we know about such a game and whether or not it is in development. It will be interesting to see what this online game is about and how it is connected to The Last of Us.
An art book and statue of Ellie have been revealed which you can get if you are interested in collectibles. The game is expected to release on February 21, 2020.
Let us know what you think about The Last of Us Part 2 not having a multiplier mode and whether or not you are interested in playing the game when it comes out.
