Today Naughty Dog shared more information and a visual tease about the upcoming The Last of Us multiplayer game. 

With a blog post penned by co-president Neil Druckmann himself focusing on the upcoming 10th-anniversary of the franchise, the developer shared brand new concept art of the upcoming multiplayer project dedicated to the franchise, which has been shrouded in mystery ever since the release of The Last of Us Part II.

You can see what it looks like above, showing what appears a beached and derelict cruise ship among the ruins of a city. No specific information has been provided, but it could quite possibly be a concept for a level. 

We hear that the development team is led by Vinit Agarwal, Joe Pettinati, and Anthony Newman, who are all Naughty Dog veterans. Interestingly, the game is defined "a fresh, new experience from the studio, but one rooted in Naughty Dog’s passion for delivering incredible stories, characters, and gameplay."

Perhaps even more exciting is the fact that Druckmann confirmed that news about the "ambitious" game will come later this year. We don't yet know when, but the anniversary will hit on June 13, so that's a decent candidate for a reveal. 

Naughty Dog recently released The Last of Us Part I, a remake of the original game for PS5, while a PC version is coming on March 3. In the meanwhile, fans are eagerly awaiting the TV show which will hit HBO on January 15

In the meanwhile, today we also learned that the franchise has sold-through (meaning to customers) over 37 million copies, which is certainly a very flattering number for a series mainly focusing on single-player storytelling at its second mainline game. Sony's efforts on PC have been rather successful, so it'll be interesting to see how that number changes following Part I's launch on the new platform.
