Naugthy Dog announced that The Last of Us Part 2 will not feature multiplayer. Although the previous title had it, the developers wanted to focus more on the single player narrative for Ellie. You can see their official statement below.

While this may be disappointing to fans who enjoyed the multiplayer, single player games are having a huge resurgence in popularity; especially PlayStation exclusive games. While some people complained the multiplayer exclusion was Naught Dog being lazy, some people also complained the 1st games multiplayer felt tacked on.

There will be some multiplayer in the future, it just won’t be for the game. Perhaps a cheaper multiplayer Faction mode in late 2020?

The Last of Us Part 2 comes out Feb. 21, 2020.

The Last of Us Part 2 release Feb. 21, 2020
