With the announcement of the exact release date for The Last of Us Part II, fans began counting the days awaiting the presence of the game. Along with the announcement of the release date, Naughty Dog shared some important details of this sequel, one of which was their serious ambition towards the single-player aspect of the game.
The first game has a multiplayer mode together with a story campaign. In the past year, the developer confirmed that this mode will return but has not been able to provide detailed information on the online mode. Naughty Dog even had a chance to open a special job to work on sequel multiplayer mode, but one year later it seems that the plan has been canceled.
Through an interview with The Telegraph, Neil Druckmann confirmed the absence of multiplayer in The Last of Us 2. He explained that the campaign story sequel was so ambitious that they had to focus all their resources to perfect the campaign, but the game also had to be released on two discs.
“Games are so ambitious that they don’t fit on one disc but must be on two discs. The game was so ambitious that we decided to make it as a single-player game. There is no multiplayer in The Last of Us Part II. We want to use all we have to make this game the biggest game we have ever done. “
The Last of Us Part II is not the first time
Where a developer is forced to release a game on two discs because it is too massive. The open-world game from Rockstar – Red Dead Redemption 2 is the last game to be released with more than one disc. It is natural to see the game is a large open-world with an online component in it. The Last of Us Part II is rumored to not be an open-world game, so it is enough to be curious about what the game will be like so that it will need two discs and release multiplayer.
