The Very Last Of Us

It's been confirmed that Naughty Dog and Sony are shutting down the multiplayer servers of Uncharted 2, Uncharted 3 and The Last Of Us for PS3 on 3rd September.

An official post from Naughty Dog confirmed the news this week:

"After nearly 10 years of operation, on Tuesday, September 3, 2019, we will be bidding farewell to the multiplayer servers for Naughty Dog games on the PlayStation 3, including Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, The Last of Us, and The Last of Us Left Behind. It’s bittersweet to say the least. Uncharted and The Last of Us multiplayer on the PS3 are defining entries in Naughty Dog’s history and we’ve been honored to support the passionate communities that have grown around them for almost a decade. We have so many fond memories from playing alongside you throughout the years."

RIP in peace.
