The studio previously described the multiplayer game as a “fresh, new experience,” rooted in their passion for delivering exciting stories, characters, and gameplay. “The team was excited about the direction we were going,” say the Last of Us developers. There was a clear vision for the project. Already improving the game and starting to speed up production, it became clear that they had bitten off more than they could chew.
In 2022, the studio shared some concept art from its upcoming project, but hasn’t offered any significant updates since then. However, a year later, there has been no update, and after the PlayStation Showcase in May, the studio admitted it still needed… time to work and they still couldn’t provide details.
Shortly after, Bloomberg announced that the studio had reassigned developers who had worked on the project to other teams and was reevaluating its feasibility, adding that the company realized “we have to put everything into publishing and supporting The Last of Us online.

Game development company Naughty Dog released “The Last of Us” exclusively for PlayStation 3 in 2013, and the sequel “The Last of Us Part II” was released in 2020, and now “The Last of Us” “Part II Remastered” is slated for PS5. Published in January 2024.
