Even though the original The Last of Us is known for its amazing single-player campaign, there’s a dedicated group of the fanbase who still play the multiplayer mode to this day.
It was confirmed that The Last of Us Part II would feature a MP mode as well, however this is no longer true. Lead Game Designer Emilia Schatz confirmed to USGamer that it will no longer have one, instead focusing on the single-player narrative.
We’re focusing on a single-player experience, so we’re just making a single-player game for this.
Sorry to all of the Factions fans, as I know plenty of y’all were expecting this mode to return. Am I still buying the game come February 21, 2020? Hell yes. I could however see some people canceling their pre-orders over this mode but how are you going to know if Ellie kills them all?!
