Naughty Dog Shares Concept Art From The Last of Us Multiplayer Game, More Details Coming This Year

Naughty Dog has shared new concept art from The Last of Us multiplayer game and promised it will release more information later this year, possibly on the original game’s 10th anniversary.

Studio co-president Neil Druckmann said in a blog post that, while the game is obviously a multiplayer experience and therefore different to what Naughty Dog is known for, it will still be a story and character rich game.

“We’re looking ahead to The Last of Us’ 10th anniversary in June, and we’re so excited to share more with you about the future of this franchise,” said Druckmann. “We’ll have some fun surprises for you along the way, but later this year we will begin to offer you some details on our ambitious The Last of Us multiplayer game.”

He continued: “With a team led by Vinit Agarwal, Joe Pettinati, and Anthony Newman, the project is shaping up to be a fresh, new experience from our studio, but one rooted in Naughty Dog’s passion for delivering incredible stories, characters, and gameplay.”

The concept art matches what fans have come to expect from The Last of Us, showing an abandoned street with a rusty cruise ship casually sitting at the road’s end. Adding a further tidbit, Druckmann also shared that the franchise has sold more than 37 million copies worldwide as of December 2022.

With the Last of Us TV show airing on January 15 on HBO, Naughty Dog will also provide behind-the-scenes information about the original game for PlayStation 3 and the Part 1 remake for PlayStation 5 as the show progresses.

In IGN’s The Last of Us Part 1 review, we said: “A gorgeous and well-honed remake of one of the biggest boppers in the PlayStation pantheon, The Last of Us Part 1 is the best way to play – or replay – Naughty Dog’s esteemed survival classic.”
