The Last of Us multiplayer could be free, job listing suggests


The Last of Us Multiplayer could be free, if a new job posting by Naughty Dog is anything to go by. A hawk-eyed Redditor spotted a job posting for a live ops producer on the developer’s website, which is specifically looking for a candidate who has experience in “AAA, free to play, live title “. Although The Last of Us isn’t mentioned anywhere in the ad, it’s the only Naughty Dog multiplayer project we know of in development. So speculation suggests that what we used to call “Factions” is now a standalone, free-to-play game.

The Last of Us multiplayer ‘major part’ of Sony’s live service efforts

“We can finally announce that we’re creating something much bigger than a mode,” Naughty Dog said of multiplayer gaming earlier this year, adding that it’s “a hugely ambitious undertaking.” Previous reports claimed the game would be “an important part” of Sony’s live service efforts. The company has made no secret of its desire to expand into the live services space, especially after the Bungie acquisition.

“We are looking for a Live Ops Producer to support our major new multiplayer title,” reads the job description (via Reddit). Naughty Dog wants someone with “proven experience in a production role supporting a AAA title, free-to-air, and live.”
