A multiplayer project in the universe of The Last of Us will offer not only a well-developed storyline with new unique characters, but also a certain focus on co-op. At least that’s the theory fans came up with after reading a new interview with producer Neil Druckmann .
As the developer noted, communicating with journalists, with the multiplayer The Last of Us it will be possible to get acquainted with a friend in the company, which implies the presence in the project of not only competitive elements.
“We’ve been pretty open that the next Last of Us game is going to be this multiplayer experience, where you’ll be able to enter the world of The Last of Us with your friend and get to experience the tension and the brutality of that world — and a brand new story and cast of characters that live in another city that we haven’t seen yet in the world of The Last of Us. This is going to be another chapter in the universe of The Last of Us.”
Recall that in addition to the multiplayer The Last of Us, the Naughty Dog team is also working on another secret project. Presumably this is The Last of Us Part III.
