Naughty Dog Says There are "No Plans" for The Last of Us 2 DLC

Don't get your hopes too high for The Last of Us 2 DLC, although Naughty Dog hints an extra mode might be in the works still.

Naughty Dog's The Last of Us 2 isn't even two weeks old, but fans are already wondering if we can expect The Last of Us 2 DLC of some kind in the future. According to Naughty Dog Creative Director, Neil Druckmann, though, that's probably not going to happen.

Druckmann made his comments during a recent episode of the Kinda Funny podcast. When asked whether there's any word on The Last of Us 2 DLC, he said there are "no plans" for additional story content at this time.

Of course, that's akin to saying "we have nothing to announce," so there's always a chance we might see some sort of story add-on down the road.

The more likely scenario is that we'd see The Last of Us 2 DLC bring in some kind of extra mode, though. Druckmann said Naughty Dog is still working on that side content rumored to be the scope and breadth of a standalone title.

Will we get a The Last of Us 2 factions spin-off game, pitting the gut-ripping Scars and head-smashing WLF together in multiplayer combat (please no)? Maybe. But the possibility still exists this new mode could be something completely unrelated to the series as well.

Whatever the case may be, Naughty Dog probably won't announce anything for a while yet.

But it wasn't until 2017 he started writing about them, after finishing two history degrees and deciding a career in academia just wasn't the best way forward. You'll usually find him playing RPGs, strategy games, or platformers, but he's up for almost anything that seems interesting.
