Posting on its official blog, Neil Druckmann, co-president of Naughty Dog, revealed that more details on The Last of Us multiplayer, which is a standalone project separate from The Last of Us Part II, will be revealed at some point later this year. 2023 also marks the 10th anniversary of The Last of Us, which Druckmann also acknowledged in the post.
We’re looking ahead to The Last of Us’ 10th anniversary in June, and we’re so excited to share more with you about the future of this franchise. We’ll have some fun surprises for you along the way, but later this year we will begin to offer you some details on our ambitious The Last of Us multiplayer game.
With a team led by Vinit Agarwal, Joe Pettinati, and Anthony Newman, the project is shaping up to be a fresh, new experience from our studio, but one rooted in Naughty Dog’s passion for delivering incredible stories, characters, and gameplay. We first shared concept art of the project with you last year, and we hope this new piece of concept art below further excites you for what our team is working on.
While there’s no release date in sight for The Last of Us’ multiplayer game, it was reported before Christmas that Naughty Dog is looking to expand the franchise beyond that, with The Last of Us Part 3 reportedly in the works.
