The Last Of Us Part 2: no plans for DLC confirms director

Despite its gargantuan success, The Last Of Us Part 2 won’t be receiving any DLC, according to director Neil Druckmann.

In spite of the controversies surrounding it, or maybe because of them, The Last Of Us Part 2 has become a phenomenal sales success, managing to have the biggest PlayStation 4 launch ever in the UK.

So, you would think this would guarantee both a sequel and DLC. While a Last Of Us Part 3 could very well be Naughty Dog’s next project, DLC has surprisingly been ruled out by the director himself.

Speaking on a Kinda Funny spoilercast about The Last Of Us Part 2, alongside voice actors Ashley Johnson and Troy Baker (who play Ellie and Joel, respectively), director Neil Druckmann very bluntly states that there are ‘no plans for DLC.’

You can hear his statement around the 1:52:00 mark in the video embedded above, but otherwise be warned as the video does go into spoiler territory.

This might be somewhat surprising to hear for some, as the first game received story DLC in the form of a prequel called Left Behind, which provided a little more insight into Ellie’s backstory.

The lack of any DLC for The Last Of Us Part 2 does seem to suggest that Naughty Dog was able to do everything it wanted in terms of the game’s narrative, meaning it has no intention of fleshing anything else out.

There is still the supposed multiplayer spin-off to look forward to though. The Last Of Us Part 2 was meant to have an online mode but Naughty Dog chose to cut it due to the ambition of the single-player campaign.

However, Naughty Dog hasn’t really spoken about it since and, at the time of writing, there’s no word on if it’s even working on it right now.

The Last Of Us Part 2 is available exclusively on PlayStation 4.
