Rumor: Sony significantly scales up development of The Last of Us multiplayer for PS5



Update: Well, well, well. Naughty Dog’s statement came as a bit of a surprise earlier this evening, but it appears to have effectively followed a Bloomberg report suggesting the project is in the pits. Highly Reliable reporter Jason Schreier cites four sources familiar with the release, and claims that Sony has “slowed development” on the title “as creators reassess its quality and long-term viability”. .

Schrier went on to report that the project was set back during a recent evaluation, which also resulted in the closure of PixelOpus and the possible cancellation of Deviation Games’ first title. “A small group remains on the project while the company reevaluates direction,” Schreyer’s report continues. “Although the game has not been canceled, many of its developers have been moved to other projects.” This will likely include the company’s new single player title.

Following Bloomberg’s report, Giant Bomb’s Jeff Grubb weighed in on the topic: “All I’ve heard about this game is that it sounds like a studio’s first live-service game, and they wanted to do Naughty Dog. Things are in their own way, which may not have been good for the factions.”

Original article: Well, despite being officially announced almost Four Years ago, it looks like Naughty Dog’s standalone multiplayer game, The Last of Us Factions. still Not close to release. Many wondered why this week’s headline was absent PS Showcase, especially since series creator Neil Druckmann promised that we’ll learn a lot more about the project this year. But in A statement The studio said that while “our studio is proud of the work it has done so far […] We have felt that what is best for the game is to give it more time”. No word on when or where we’ll learn more.
