Much has been speculated about the multiplayer of The Last of Us Part II, the sequel to one of Naughty Dog’s most acclaimed titles. Although we have not yet been able to take a first look at it, we know that its development is underway, it is said that it could include a battle royale mode and Neil Druckmann, director and scriptwriter of the game, assures that the wait will be worth it. Thanks to a new job offer published by the Californian study (goes Dexerto), it could have been revealed that the multiplayer will opt for the format free to play and will have microtransactions such as Halo Infinite.
TLOU2 multiplayer could be a standalone game
As we can read in the hiring section of the website of Naughty Dog, the developer of PlayStation Studios are looking for a senior monetization and economics designer. It should be noted that it is not specifically mentioned that this job is linked to the multiplayer of The Last of Us Part II, but it is reasonable considering the description of the offer. “Embark on Naughty Dog’s New Adventure: the studio’s first standalone multiplayer game! We want to bring to this multiplayer project the same level of ambition and quality as our signature games, “the publication highlights.
“We are looking for an experienced, creative and collaborative monetization designer to help us build an amazing and enjoyable economy for gamers. In this role, he will have the opportunity to be very innovative and make his mark by developing a first-class economy system from the beginning, “he adds. Among the number of titles that Naughty Dog is currently developing, it seems that this new multiplayer will be one one of the most ambitious. If we stick to the job offer description, the multiplayer game would be independent, which would mean that it could be that the base game was not necessary as it happens, as we have highlighted, with Halo Infinite.
