The Last of Us Part 2 Multiplayer Mode Confirmed in Vague Tweet

The Last of Us Part 2 multiplayer finally has been (vaguely) confirmed by Neil Druckmann, hints that the mode is coming and will be worth the wait.

September 27, 2020

With The Last of Us Day come and gone, many were wondering if we’ve heard all we are going to hear about the infamous zombie game. Specifically, whether there would be an announcement about a new multiplayer mode (similar to the original TLoU). According to the series creator Neil Druckmann, fans of the series should be patient — notably The Last of Us 2‘s multiplayer mode will “be worth” the wait.

As mentioned above, news comes directly from Neil Druckmann who tweeted a final cap-off to the first-ever TLoU Day. Following a series of Tweets with fun content from developers and fans alike, Druckmann thanked “all the wonderful fans for” the love and support. Notably, he vaguely referenced “that other thing” noting that fans should “be patient. It’ll be worth it.”


While the language is obviously vague, it is hard for anyone to not imagine he is directly talking about and upcoming multiplayer mode for TLoU Part 2. Despite the multiplayer being insanely popular on the original game, fans have been speculating an official reveal of the mode would be announced as part of the designated celebration. Druckmann seems to be speaking directly to those fans in the reply.

Naughty Dog has been unusually quiet since early development on what exactly this new mode would be, or if TLoU Part 2 would have multiplayer at all. Despite not launching with a designated mode, Naughty Dog had posted numerous job listings for character customization and in-game stores to bulk up a multiplayer component. As part of the spree of leaks, we also got some footage of an early build for The Last of Us Part 2‘s multiplayer — though little else has been heard of since then.

The Last of Us Part 2 is available now, exclusively on PS4. If you haven’t picked up get game yet, you can get it on Amazon to help support DualShockers.

Editor’s Note: The headline was changed from “The Last of Us Part 2 Multiplayer Mode Confirmed, Coming Soon” to “The Last of Us Part 2 Multiplayer Mode Confirmed in Vague Tweet” to better reflect the story.
