what is the last of us about cover

A new report from Jason Schreier’s Bloomberg has claimed that Naughty Dogs The Last of Us Multiplayer game has faced some setbacks and could be in trouble.

According to Bloomberg, which says it has spoken with four people familiar with the project, the game has been “scaled back after a recent evaluation”. The report affirms that the project has not been canceled, but many of its developers have since moved on to other projects.

Jason Schreier’s report on the story comes following Naughty Dogs’ latest statement, which Schreier has claimed on Twitter was in response to Bloomberg’s request for comment on the story.

Taking to Twitter, the developer said, “We know many of you have been looking forward to hearing more about our The Last of Us Multiplayer game. We’re incredibly proud of the job our studio has done thus far, but as development has continued, we’ve realized what is best for the game is to give it more time.”

“Our team will continue to work on the project, as well as our other games in development, including a brand new single-player experience; we look forward to sharing more soon.”

We’re grateful to our fantastic community for your support – Thank you for your passion for our games, it continues to drive us.”

The lack of showing at the PlayStation Showcase, in addition to the new statement and Schreier’s report, does suggest that the game is in trouble and unfortunately likely means we won’t be hearing about the game again anytime soon.
