Already been stated as not happening, officially, by the company in various Q&A sessions.

It’s week two for me, so I’ve got a ton left to learn and get up to speed on. Nonetheless, I plan on posting on the forums as much as possible.

Their reasoning was that they wouldn't do it because the multiplayer is supposed to be about the factions or some such nonsense. Because god forbid they do something enjoyable just because it would break the nonexistant theme of the storyless multiplayer.

Also, I think they said "technical reasons", which is another really terrible excuse.

the reasoning for the factions thing was because people wanted to play as Joel, Elli, David, etc. from the story. They said technical issues were the problem for co-op modes

Technical reasons are a legitimate problem. Once again tlou pushes the 7 year old ps3 to the max, we already have enough glitches and enough problems with the mp. The ps3 can't handle co-op fighting against hordes of infected.

It may be possible on the ps4, but forcing it on the ps3 would render the game broken with more technical issues.

UC3 can handle co-op because you are fighting human AI. Infected are a different story. How many more thread's are gonna be made about co-op cod horde mode?

Try clicking the search tab, you'll see over 20 thread's begging for infected in the MP.

politcal correct leftwing won't let violence happen to a 14 year old girl in multiplayer even though shes in the storymode and in the actual game, makes no sense.

Tehcnical problems, in my opinion, are not a legitimate reason. All of the trailers and such stress how much Joel and Ellie are working together to survive, so co-op SHOULD be a no brainer. And yet they made the game in such a way that it's apparently impossible. They tied their own hands.

And I remember the excuse about factions, scarcity, theme, etc. being used for a lot of things. I don't mind it as a reason not to add anytbing excessively silly, like traffic cone hats or donut skins or something. But not adding gametypes like king of the hill or capture the flag or something because they don't think it fits the theme of the game, or that's not how they want the game to be played, is just over the top stupid. Skins SHOULD be the same way. I feel like they could easily add skins from Uncharted or TLOU single player without making them look out of place.
