Naughty Dog’s Neil Druckmann has teased fans with news on multiplayer for The Last of Us Part 2.

The Last of Us Part 2 shipped without an online mode, and though we’ve known a year that a separate multiplayer mode is coming, we don’t know how, when or in what form.

Celebrating The Last of Us Day over the weekend, Druckmann tweeted just one cryptic message to fans (along with loads of new GIFs released by Naughty Dog in honour of the occasion).


“Thank you to all the wonderful fans for an incredible #TheLastofUsDay.” tweeted Druckmann. “Your positivity and love is incredibly inspiring. Oh… and about that other thing… be patient. It’ll be worth it.”

Considering the only update we’re waiting for is regarding The Last of Us Part 2’s multiplayer, it’s not too much of a reach to imagine this is what the man himself is referring to. Sadly, it doesn’t give much away other than that it seems as though Naughty Dog is still hard at work on the upcoming mode.

News of multiplayer has been virtually non-existent since Naughty Dog confirmed the game wouldn’t be shipping with multiplayer.

Last year, Naughty Dog took to Twitter with the following statement:

“We wanted to address multiplayer in The Last of Us Part 2. As we’ve stated, the single player campaign is far and away the most ambitious project Naughty Dog has ever undertaken. Likewise, as development began on the evolution of our Factions mode from The Last of Us Part 1, the vision of the team grew beyond an additional mode that could be included with our enormous single player campaign. Wanting to support both visions, we made the difficult choice that The Last of Us Part 2 would not include an online mode.

“However, you will eventually experience the fruits of our team’s online ambition, but not as part of The Last of us Part 2. When and where it will be realised is still to be determined. But rest assured, we are as big a fan of Factions as the rest of our community and are excited to share more when it’s ready.”


However it’ll happen, we’re happy to wait!
