Naughty Dog vice president and creative director of The Last of Us Part 2 has said the team has no plans for any DLC for the controversial game.
Speaking on the Kinda Funny Games podcast, Druckmann appeared alongside TLOU alums, Ashley Johnson and Troy Baker, discussing all things about Part 2.
Druckmann tells listeners: “With The Last of Us, I think we had some season pass or something…we had some story DLC. But no, there’s no plans for DLC [for Part 2].”
If you want to have a listen for yourself, it comes in around the one hour, 52 mark.
It’s one of the most controversial video games of the year, but there’s one thing that’s not up for debate: The Last of Us Part 2 has absolutely smashed expectations when it comes to its sales figures.
According to figures from GamesIndustry.biz, Naughty Dog’s swan song of the PlayStation 4 has bested its previous PS4 hit, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End (at least when it comes to physical copies within the first week of each games’ launch).
The Last of Us Part 2 has just managed to exceed the sales of Nathan Drake’s final adventure by a narrow 1%, though the as-of-yet-unrevealed download sales are expected to increase that margin even more.
Meanwhile Part 2 has outsold the original The Last of Us by a whopping 76% (again, we’re talking physical sales in the UK, during the first week of release here). It’s even gone on to beat out the previous biggest-selling game of 2020 – Animal Crossing: New Horizons – by 40%.
It’s great news for Sony and Naughty Dog, as the game was hit with a massive spoiler leak just weeks before launch. The leak, which was verified by the developers to be legitimate, cause a lot of outrage amongst players who did not support the story. This, in turn, let to gamers demanding a “boycott” of the game. Clearly, the controversy hasn’t dampened sales figures.
