Although unconfirmed, some recent information suggests that Naughty Dog may open The Last of Us 2’s multiplayer mode for free to all gamers, just like Halo Infinite.
While The Last of Us received a standing ovation for its compelling story, many other gamers loved the game’s clever multiplayer mode called Factions. In this brutal mode, gamers will be chosen to become Firefly or Hunter, and must show their skills in matches to help their team survive. It’s a very exciting multiplayer mode and with the announcement of The Last of Us 2, many gamers must have been excited to see Factions mode return with some new form of gameplay that is more exciting than before. Unfortunately this mode didn’t launch with the game, and there’s little real information about The Last of Us 2’s multiplayer other than the fact that it’s still in development.

The company is looking for talent for the position of “Senior Business/Economy Designer” working on “first indie multiplayer game” by Naughty Dog.

PlayStation may be very successful in the gaming industry when it comes to the single-player game genre, but one area where the company falters more than others is offering exclusive multiplayer titles. Sure, games like Destruction AllStars and Fall Guys have been PlayStation exclusives in the past, but never quite reached the iconic status of their single-player titles. It’s possible that PlayStation is hoping that the multiplayer version of The Last of Us 2 will do things that the company’s previous online multiplayer titles have failed to do.
