Sony Interactive Entertainment and Naughty Dog have scaled down the The Last of Us multiplayer game, according to sources familiar with the matter who spoke with Bloomberg.
Bungie, a studio who was acquired by Sony, led the evaluation on the game and questioned the long term popularity of the live service game.
Naughty Dog has since released a statement providing an update on the The Last of Us multiplayer game. They are giving the game more time to be worked, while they also work on other titles in development, which includes a new single-player game.
"We know many of you have been looking forward to hearing more about our The Last of Us multiplayer game," reads the statement from Naughty Dog. "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."
