In a number of multiplayer focused job listings, Naughty Dog has expressed its goal to “bring the same level of ambition and quality of our signature, story-driven games” to its new online experience. It’s almost certain the team is referring to its spin-off, standalone The Last of Us multiplayer game, which was announced over a year ago, prior to the release of The Last of Us: Part II.
The details of this project remain very much under-wraps, but its scale seems to grow with each soundbite released. The original Factions proved an extremely popular part of The Last of Us and The Last of Us Remastered, but it seems like the Californian team has outrageously large plans for its successor. Sony, incidentally, has also been hunting for big multiplayer hits.
Hopefully we don’t have to wait too much longer to see the online outing in action.
