Today, Naughty Dog and Sony Interactive Entertainment confirmed that The Last of Us Part II on PS4 will not have any multiplayer. Instead, Naughty Dog will probably be dumping further assets into the sport’s single-player marketing campaign. In reality, it is dumping a lot into the marketing campaign that The Last of Us Part II is its longest and most bold sport so far. That mentioned, as you’ll anticipate, this determination has divided gamers. On one hand, many PlayStation video games are rejoicing, as a result of it means extra assets and a spotlight dedicated to the sequence sturdy level: it is story. On the opposite hand, whereas The Last of Us’ multiplayer wasn’t that fashionable, it did have its hardcore devoted followers, who’re unsurprisingly, upset to see it go.

Or, it might wind up delivering the perfect single-player story marketing campaign of all-time with the additional assets. Only time will inform. In the in the meantime, nicely, folks have their opinions.
The Last of Us 2 not having multiplayer is truthfully unacceptable tbh.
Don’t care an excessive amount of myself however really feel dangerous for all of the folks I do know who liked it within the first one.

Apparently The Last of Us 2 wont have multiplayer confirmed by a Naughty Dog Dev and Sony Rep. That’s absurdly silly and simply proves that Naughty Dog (Sony as nicely) likes to shaft their MP group any likelihood they get. pic.twitter.com/ZOS3hp9ZUb

Literally nothing on earth might make me care about The Last of Us 2 dropping multiplayer.
TLOU was all the time in regards to the story marketing campaign, by way of and thru, that is what it is recognized for, not tacked-on stuff. There’s no have to try to peel folks away from CoD, Fortnite, and so forth, in 2019.

About The Last of Us 2 not having multiplayer, good. Naughty Dog ought to deal with doing what they do greatest, passionately made, polished, and excellently directed single participant narrative experiences. I’ve by no means and can by no means purchase a Naughty Dog sport for multiplayer.
