The game being mentioned in this story is The Last of Us Online – one of the projects that has received countless expectations from gamers. Inherently, The Last of Us is already a very successful franchise, and received even more attention after its television adaptation appeared on HBO. Therefore, the attraction of The Last of Us becomes even stronger and indirectly makes The Last of Us Online project more noticeable.
While receiving countless expectations and entering the third year of development since its introduction, it was thought that The Last of Us Online was about to launch. Fans themselves are also looking forward to it when it was originally planned to appear in 2020 along with the exclusive version of The Last of Us Part 2 on PS4. But surprisingly, developer Naughty Dog made a surprising announcement. That is canceling this project.
Sharing the initial reason, Naughty Dog said that The Last of Us Online could not be released because it had grown beyond the team’s ambitions. It is known that in order to release The Last of Us Online, this developer admitted that it will have to devote all human and material resources to support post-launch content for many years to come, and this will seriously affect to the development of The Last of Us’s single games – which is what makes this franchise so successful.
Of course, many gamers were disappointed by Naughty Dog’s harsh decision when, after all, they had spent up to 3 years waiting for this blockbuster. However, there is also positive information that at least The Last of Us Part 1 was officially released on PC earlier this year and the remaster is also preparing to appear on PlayStation 5. In addition, Naughty Dog admitted They are developing not one, but two new single-player titles with upcoming releases in the future.
