Neil Druckmann, creative director of Naughty Dog, informed that there are no plans for any DLCs for The Last of Us: Part II. The developer revealed it during Kinda Funny podcast, when asked by Gregg Miller.
Druckmann didn't want to give a clear answer about a multiplayer mode. The Last of Us: Part 2 launched without multiplayer, but there have been rumors about the possibility of it being added at a later date. The developer merely stated that he "remembers the times when we were making multiplayer games", which may suggest that for Naughty Dog this is a thing of the past.
Let's recall that the first part of TLoU received an excellent DLC called The Last of Us: Left Behind, so many fans may be disappointed that things would be different with the sequel.
However, it is worth noting that Neil Druckmann mentioned only DLCs. In the case of Naughty Dog's previous game, Uncharted 4: The End of the Thief, instead of creating a story expansion, the devs decided to develop a stand-alone spin-off called Uncharted: Lost Heritage, which in terms of scale was something between an expansion and a full-fledged sequel. The words of the studio's creative director do not rule out the chances that a similar project will be created based on TLoU 2. The perspective of a spin-off may be attractive for the creators, because, as they admit, they currently have no idea what the third part of the series could look like.
The Last of Us 2 debuted on June 19, this year and is only available on PlayStation 4. The game is collecting superb reviews from the industry media. On Metacritic, the game has an average rating of 94%. Our editor was even more impressed by the project, giving it 10/10, while the opinions of the players themselves are divided.
