An Update on The Last of Us Online || Naughty Dog

It's cancelled.

To release and support The Last of Us Online we’d have to put all our studio resources behind supporting post launch content for years to come, severely impacting development on future single-player games. So, we had two paths in front of us: become a solely live service games studio or continue to focus on single-player narrative games that have defined Naughty Dog’s heritage.

Those are not your only two options. Multiplayer games are not inherently live services. Some of my favorites are from a console generation where patches were impossible and the mode was thrown together in a few weeks of dev time reusing assets from the campaign. The winner of "best multiplayer" just days ago was not a live service game.

It's more about the single-player game but I just gotta marvel at this announcement coming at the same time as kiseki for the peeps out there that get the pun, it can only chalk up to coincidence but always open to interpretation...


Don’t you love how every modern game has to be a cross between Fortnite and freemium mobile games?
