Rumors have circulated about Naughty Dog’s next big project, which is apparently a remake of The Last of Us for PS5. Reportedly more than a simple visual upgrade, it apparently won’t be long before players get their hands on the same. In a recent tweet, insider Tom Henderson said he heard from “multiple people” that the remake is “nearly finished and could release during the latter half of 2022.”

This was followed by a GIF satirically analyzing a clip from Sony’s CES 2022 show which featured Ellie and Joel in the background on stage. But that’s seemingly not all. It seems the studio’s new multiplayer project – a standalone title which may be the equivalent of Factions for The Last of Us Part 2 – will also be coming this year. As such, Henderson noted that The Last of Us Part 2’s multiplayer and its Director’s Cut are inbound but when and how is still unknown. Co-president Neil Druckmann’s statement on “multiple projects” being in the works does give some credence to their existence though.

It’s possible that the multiplayer project could be a free-to-play title that launches alongside the remake. In past job ads, Naughty Dog has spoken about bringing the “same level of ambition and quality of our signature, story-driven games to this unique multiplayer project.” So it’s very much possible that the title serves as a platform to incorporate stories from both games in the series (which makes sense if The Last of Us Part 2 Director’s Cut turns out to be real).

Time will tell so stay tuned for more details – and a potential reveal – in the coming months.
