For those who might remember from The Last of Us when the title initially dropped back in 2013, the survival action-adventure title offered a multiplayer section where players can enter matchmaking lobbies and fight it out in games of Supply Raid and Interrogation. As for the coming sequel that is expected to release sometime before the upcoming PlayStation 5, The Last of Us Part II might not offer the same feature.
According to a recent post from Reddit user toochuy, the game apparently does not offer multiplayer as deprived from the Days of Play PlayStation 4 box. Revealing that titles like Days Gone, God of War, and Marvel’s Spider-Man alongside the upcoming sequel are games that does not support multiplayer interactivity.
Some would feel that this could potentially be fake as previously it was revealed that The Last of Us Part II will provide some type of multiplayer matchmaking according to the game’s co-Director Andrew Newman. But this does also open the possibility that Naught Dog decided to drop the online segment of the game for a more in-depth single player experience.
Regardless, there has been no confirmation on if the game will or will not offer multiplayer from either the game’s developer or publisher Sony Interactive Entertainment.
Just last month, it was reported that The Last of Us II could potentially release this coming February. Kotaku’s Jason Schreier stated to have heard through the woodwork that the game was delayed in a last minute decision to give room for the November-aimed Death Stranding.
The Last of Us II currently has no set release date, but is listed to launch on PlayStation 4.
