Naughty Dog’s Co-President, Neil Druckmann, has recently announced that the studio’s upcoming Last of Us multiplayer project is the “most ambitious project” the studio has ever undertaken.
In an interview, Druckmann stated that the team at Naughty Dog has been working on the project for a long time, even before the release of The Last of Us Part 2
Naughty Dog’s Upcoming The Last of Us Multiplayer Game
The studio’s Uncharted series has been praised for its cinematic storytelling and the studio’s previous multiplayer title, The Last of Us: Factions, was well-received by fans and critics alike.
The Last of Us Part 2, released in 2020, was praised for its single-player campaign and the emotional depth of its characters.
It will be interesting to see how Naughty Dog approaches this challenge and whether they can successfully blend the two elements together.
The concept art that has been released for the game shows a group of survivors, possibly hinting at a cooperative multiplayer experience.
It’s possible that Naughty Dog could be exploring a multiplayer game that is focused on survival and cooperation rather than traditional competitive multiplayer. This could be an interesting way to tell a story as players work together to survive in a post-apocalyptic world.
The Last of Us multiplayer game is one of multiple projects in development at Naughty Dog right now. The other could be The Last of Us: Part III or a new IP, or something else entirely. However, the studio is yet to officially unveil the game and will only begin to provide details on the game in 2023.
The game will be set in the same universe, which means that fans can expect to see familiar characters and locations. This is a great opportunity for Naughty Dog to expand on the world-building that they’ve already done and to give players a deeper understanding of the post-apocalyptic universe.
Additionally, The Last of us Multiplayer will use AWS cloud servers for its online systems, ensuring a smooth and stable multiplayer experience for players.
