I just don't understand why they didn't just release it as an addition like they did with previous games multiplayers lol. It would have worked better and they could have monetized it anyways.
Sigh ok here’s the story:
Oh look we Sony are known for single player games, maybe we should bet on online as well, naughty dog team what you think? They say yes, they never did a big online only game! Things have drawbacks and delays, it’s normal yet the media is screaming doom.

Meanwhile we have Xbox games that were announced 2 years ago and are on development hell and the media is all quiet!


There you go folks!

So let me ask you? How do you and others within Sony feel about this shift into GaaS? Is everyone on-board or is it being forced upon everyone? How's morale within the overall playstation division?

Prob the best news I heard.

Cancel this POS. Sony needs to stop effing around. Repurpose whatever they did and just finish it with a proper TLOU3. Naughty Gods is a SP developer. This was a project no one asked for. Faction is fine, but this was something way bigger.

I had doubts nd gunplay can even make the cut for a good multiplayer game. I don’t think it can. The shooting and movement would be terrible for PvP not a fan in the slightest of their gameplay.

What? TLoU Part II has pretty much the best gameplay for a third-person game in ages, great movement, impact, melee combat and gunplay.

It is miles better than something stiff and ancient feeling like Gears.

TLOU has one of the best multiplayer mode. very popular, very praised.
and you here, questioning PVP? you are wrong.

PVP Factions is better than Destiny's Crucible.

Don't smoke that blunt Vertigo.

Factions is still alive on TLOU Remastered (PS4 version). Free for PS5 owners as well. Specially on the weekends. Obviously no longer supported and it could have benefited from a bit of balancing on certain guns + more content and modes obv.

I don't think a delay is necessarily dooming, but the schreier report that they slashed the team massively means it's donezo

Or that team members are moving to help other projects now that its closer to ending?

Focusing on the single player projects shouldnt fall back to schedule because there online game needs a delay And more work. Just like Horizon 2, Zelda TOTK, God of War and so many games get delayed.

They probably always had a plan to get move the TLOU factions 2 team members to help development with there other single player projects. Just now the online game, also needs more time

If they were just closing out the project it wouldn't have been delayed and it would be shown off at an event. Instead ND publicly announced that it needs more time. It's getting rebooted fam. Moving a bunch of project people off probably means it's all the way back to the drawing board and they'll try to reuse any developed assets for their next thing.

Yeah, " need more time" could mean a decade. They moved the team to work on the next single player game which means they started full production. Hence, Factions development is suspended for now.

I’m gonna laugh when this news turns out to be BS.

Have a sneaky feeling this will be the case.
Jason Schreier is reliable source when it comes to this type of news.

Yes, he bullshits alot when it comes to personal opinion, but never doubt him when he delivers information.

Here is a Naughty Dog employee saying the opposite.


He might be talking about the other project. If Sony moved the team to work on it. Then, they are going full production mode. Hence, that project is probably what's smelling good and that's why Sony wants to put all force in it.

Ill wait before I think its rebooted.
It could easily get delayed and be towards the end.
“The team has 4 years until we move most the team on another early pre production title.”
Its not ready yet.
Ok carry on, we’re still moving most the team. Delays happen all the time.
I wouldnt be surprised if anything is canned and theres bad management, but it could easily be nothing.

I'm not believing anything they say until they show the game. Believe me I will happily eat crow if it's just an internal delay and it comes out early 2024 instead of holiday 2023 and blows my socks off.
