More footage of The Last of Us Part 2 has leaked again, and this time, it’s not the main game. Rather, the footage is from Naughty Dog’s standalone multiplayer expansion for the game entitled Factions. The initial footage has already been slapped with a DMCA claim, but more footage has been leaked.
While The Last of Us Part 2 director and Naughty Dog vice president Neil Druckmann had stated back in September 2019 that the title wouldn’t include a multiplayer component as originally planned, Druckmann did say that Naughty Dog planned to release a new multiplayer offering after its work on the sequel was complete.
“You will eventually experience the fruits of our team’s online ambition, but not as part of The Last of Us Part II,” it said. “When and where it will be realized is still to be determined. But rest assured, we are as big a fan as Factions as the rest of our community and are excited to share more when it’s ready.”
It’s not currently known when Naughty Dog plans to announce and launch Factions, especially with the PS5 scheduled for release this Holiday.
