During The Last of Us Day, fans were really disappointed. The game studio didn’t release any details about the sequel’s multiplayer mode. According to Naughty Dog’s Vice president, we should be patient because everything is worth the wait.
Naughty Dog celebrated The Last of Us Day with a bunch of free stuff, such as sleek cosplay guides, gifts, avatars for PS users, and themes. But the game studio was expected to reveal the much-awaited multiplayer mode for The Last of Us 2. That thing didn’t happen. Here is what you need to know.
Multiplayer Mode Expectations: Rumors, Reports, and Official Stuff
Many fans assumed that the much-awaited multiplayer mode for The Last of Us 2 would be finally unveiled at The Last of Us Day. Things, however, weren’t that good. Naughty Dog’s vice president, Neil Druckman, did offer a few details about the multiplayer mode.
The recent The Last of Us Day event brought for a limited time, free PS4 themes and avatars to download and a cool collection of gifs that recreate famous ones from the Internet using characters from the franchise.
The event announced, too, a sleek vinyl of the sequel’s soundtrack and a The Last of Us 2 tabletop game. But, as nice as things were, one thing was missing: a multiplayer mode announcement.
Shortly after The Last of Us Day came to an end, Druckmann encouraged us not to give up. Via Twitter, he thanked the community and discussed the multiplayer mode, saying: “[…] Oh… and about that other thing…be patient. It’ll be worth it.”
After a series of rumors and leaks, including multiplayer gameplay footage, everyone assumed the feature was closer than ever to an official release. Its absence from the event shows otherwise. The game studio still doesn’t seem ready to launch the multiplayer mode.
The Last of Us 2 was released exclusively for PS4 users.
