Word had been spreading that Naughty Dog is planning to release more DLC for survival horror game The Last of Us, which led some to speculate that more story-related content could be on the horizon. However, Naughty Dog has now confirmed that the only DLC that is planned for the future is for the game’s multiplayer.
Naughty Dog community strategist Arne Meyer said the following to Digital Spy:
“We just wanted to say when we released the Remastered version, we know there’s a lot of DLC out there, and that we weren’t going to stop supporting both the PS3 and PS4 versions,” Meyer said. “We do have some DLC planned; it’ll be multiplayer-focused. We’re not ready to talk about the details yet, but throughout the rest of the year we’ll have some DLC drops.”
This isn’t too surprising, considering The Last of Us‘ sole story-driven DLC was called Left Behind and was regarded more as the cherry on top of a completed story. Something tells me that the developers may be focusing their story-writing efforts more on a sequel.
