While The Last of Us Part II will not have a multiplayer mode like the first game, that does not mean the game will be any smaller. In fact, The Last of Us Part II will be so big the game will be shipped on two Blu-ray discs.
This was confirmed in an interview that Telegraph had with The Last of Us Part II‘s Game Director Neil Druckmann. Druckmann said that The Last of Us Part II is the biggest game Naughty Dog has ever worked on and it will be shipping on two Blu-ray discs which is a very rare thing for this generation of games. The last game this generation that shipped on two discs was Red Dead Redemption II which was another massive game and it came with its own install disc. It is more than likely that it will be the same for The Last of Us Part II.
Druckmann also talked about some other details regarding The Last of Us Part II including the fact that the multiplayer mode while it will not be part of the game, the work that went into it won’t be scrapped. The Last of Us Part II will be released for the PS4 on February 21, 2020, and is available for preorder on Amazon.
