Unfortunately, speaking to to Kinda Funny, creative director of The Last of Us Part 2, Neil Druckmann, said that Naughty Dog had “no plans for DLC” right now.
This is really strange if you take into consideration the huge success that The Last of Us Part 2 had as a follow up to the original title. But perhaps the company will focus on a different game because last September the studio announced that The Last of Us: Part 2 would launch without a new Factions multiplayer mode as work on one had grown “beyond an additional mode that could be included with our enormous single-player campaign”. According to some rumours, The Last of Us 2 multiplayer will arrive as a separate release or DLC in the future.
“You will eventually experience the fruits of our team’s online ambition,” Naughty Dog said at the time, “but not as part of The Last of Us 2. When, where it will be realised and if it will be a The Last of Us 2 DLC is still to be determined. But rest assured, we are as big a fan of Factions as the rest of our community and are excited to share more when it’s ready.” During his interview this week, when Neil Druckmann was asked about the multiplayer feature of the title he did not gave an answer. “I remember when we used to make multiplayer games,” he joked, before miming a mouth-zipping action.
