After recapping the sequel release, Synder said, “We are working on it. We see the community comments as many of you clamor for multiplayer and want updates. For now, we’ll say that we love what the team is developing and want to give them time to build out their ambitious project. We’ll reveal more when it is ready!

Currently, it is not clear if it will be a standalone release or just a part of the sequel. However, a tweet from Naughty Dog from 2019 suggests that the multiplayer will not be a part of The Last of Us II.

A job listing spotted way back in June 2021 mentioned Naughty dog’s newest adventure. All of these hints point towards a potential standalone multiplayer game.
