The Last of Us’ multiplayer mode was originally set to release alongside The Last of Us: Part II. However, due to the increasing scale of the game, it was decided that it would be a separate release. However, a number of years have passed and still little is known about the project. This left many wondering if the game had been canceled. This appears not to be the case.
Vinit Agarwal, game director of Naughty Dog’s online project, posted the post below. In the post about Super Mario Wonder he indicates that he is still working on “that game”. Since the description of his profile states that he is working on The Last of Us online project, it seems confirmed that The Last of Us multiplayer game is still in development. With this Tweet, the game director hopes to prevent fans from constantly asking about the game.
There have been rumors for a long time that there were problems with the development of the Last of Us multiplayer game. Last month, Kotaku reported that people had been laid off at Naughty Dog. Although the game wasn’t completely canceled according to Kotaku, the project was on hold for a while, according to a source.
Earlier this year, Bloomberg reported that there were problems with the game’s development. According to sources, a smaller group of people would be working on the project. Naughty Dog then posted the post below, indicating that the project needs more time.
Although the game is still in development, it seems unlikely that we can expect a release date anytime soon.
