The Last of Us’ multiplayer mode was originally set to release alongside The Last of Us: Part II. However, due to the game’s increased size, it was decided to be a separate release. However, several years have passed and little is known about the project. This left many wondering if the game had been cancelled. Apparently this is not the case.
Vinit Agarwal, game director for Naughty Dog’s online project, shared the post below. In the post about Super Mario Wonder he noted that he is still working on “that game.” Since his profile description indicates that he is working on The Last of Us online project, it seems to be confirmed that The Last of Us multiplayer game is still in development. Through this tweet, the game director hopes to prevent fans from constantly asking about the game.
i did it! Wow, that was tough, easily over 300 Marios died in the process.
So this tweet can live in peace… Yes, I’m still working on that game. pic.twitter.com/a5Avx9Xl8H

Although the game is still in development, we’re unlikely to expect a release date anytime soon.
