The Final of Us got here with a fairly enjoyable and distinctive multiplayer mode within the type of Factions, and when The Final of Us Half II launched, a lot of the participant base was excited to see how Naughty Canine would iterate on an present formulation. We’d gotten a number of updates over the previous couple years, however as of at present, the studio has formally determined to cease improvement on The Final of Us On-line.
Primarily, whereas Naughty Canine was proud of the best way issues have been progressing with the sport, the imaginative and prescient for The Final of Us On-line had develop into so massively formidable that might require a variety of time and sources for the years to come back. Issues had gotten to some extent the place the corporate needed to determine to both proceed focusing their efforts on creating single-player video games, or develop into a dwell service studio that targeted on The Final of Us On-line.
“In ramping as much as full manufacturing, the large scope of our ambition grew to become clear. To launch and help The Final of Us On-line we’d need to put all our studio sources behind supporting put up launch content material for years to come back, severely impacting improvement on future single-player video games. So, we had two paths in entrance of us: develop into a solely dwell service video games studio or proceed to concentrate on single-player narrative video games which have outlined Naughty Canine’s heritage.”
As a result of Naughty Canine has at all times been recognized for placing out high quality, narrative-driven, single-player experiences, the choice was made to cancel The Final of Us On-line.
It’s positively a disgrace, as Factions 2.0 was one thing that the TLOU neighborhood had been trying ahead to, however perhaps subsequent time.
The Final of Us Half II is now obtainable on PlayStation.
