The Last of Us Won't Have Co-Op Story Campaign

While the game's concept – two survivors in a post-apocalyptic wasteland – seems built for co-op, Naughty Dog says the game's main campaign won't be playable cooperatively.

However, that doesn't mean there won't be a significant multiplayer component to the game. In an interview with Gaming Examiner, The Last of Us game director Bruce Straley elaborated, "We are supporting multiplayer with The Last of Us. We’re not ready to talk about the details of how multiplayer will be implemented, however we can say that it is not co-op within the main campaign."

We'll be interested to see what Naughty Dog comes up with. However, we can't help but be a little disappointed with the lack of story co-op. Lets hope there's some other type of co-op mode in the game.
