Yesterday evening, as part of the Summer Games Festival, not only was the new version of The Last of Us announced, but there was finally another update to the promised multiplayer game from The Last of Us: Part II.
The multiplayer part too Our Last: Part Two There is still a long time to come, but at least since yesterday evening a sign of life has finally appeared again. Naughty Dog CEO Neil Druckman has taken to the Summer Games Festival stage to confirm that the big multiplayer component is in the works and will now be released entirely on its own. So you don’t necessarily have to have the actual main game to play multiplayer later.
However, according to Druckmann, the development studio is unfortunately still not enough to show more multiplayer to the public. Accordingly, Geoff Keighley only showed a concept photo showing two characters looking around a post-apocalyptic city.
To be able to assess the extent of its multiplayer: According to Druckmann, the indie title will now be the size of Naughty Dog’s single-player titles – and “bigger in some areas”.
Druckmann continues, “There’s also a story and the way we tell that story is completely unique in this game. There’s a whole new set of characters and they’re set in a different part of the United States.”
Judging by the concept of art, the new location could be San Francisco, where the Golden Gate Bridge appears to be on display.
Unfortunately, there is no release date yet, but Druckmann has promised more information for next year. Accordingly, publication is no longer expected before 2023.
