The next The Last of Us will be a multiplayer-exclusive game

Naughty Dog has officially confirmed the long-rumored multiplayer game for The Last of Us.

Unfortunately, the next TLOU game will be a standalone multiplayer project and not an add-on to The Last of Us Part II.

While we've known about this for a while, there are still fans hoping that Sony will release the multiplayer mode for The Last of Us Part II as a DLC or expansion.

According to Naughty Dog's Neil Druckmann, the studio has worked on the multiplayer spin-off for the past two years, adding that the game will be "as big as any of [our] single-player games, and in some ways bigger."

Finally, we also learned that the multiplayer game will have a unique story and will take place in what looks like San Francisco

Unfortunately, that was all that Druckmann had to share about the game until next year.
