Naughty Dog has finally talked a little more about its The Last of Us Multiplayer game, with more proper news to come in 2023.
Neil Druckmann came on stage at Summer Game Fest and revealed that the team has made this multiplayer game a standalone title after two years of work, mainly because it exceeded their initial ambitions. The game is still a The Last Of Us spin-off as well, but specific details on the story are yet to be revealed.
You can see the Summer Game Fest interview with Neil Druckmann below:
Multiple Uncharted veterans are involved, and Druckmann said it’s as big as a Naughty Dog single player game, and in some ways bigger. It even has a story interwoven into matches.

My love for The Last of Us & @Naughty_Dog's MP modes inspired me to join the studio. Co-directing the first standalone online experience, one of our biggest efforts ever, is a dream. Can’t wait to reveal more of what this incredible team is building! pic.twitter.com/nPlZRPtn74
