I'm currently on Black Ops II, and there is over a quarter of a million people playing the game right now. I know it's dumb to compare any game to the biggest FPS on the market, but in all reality, how big could you see The Last of Us community being? How many players can you imagine on average playing the multiplayer?
Hmm probably the size of the 'current' UC3 community.
^This. The multiplayer will have a big amount of players at first, obviously because the game will be new. After a few months though, the casuals and less dedicated players will leave. Only a very dedicated core group will stick around for months and months, maybe even for a couple years. I'll be one those core players
Just Akyemeni, playing with himself as usual...
