The ESRB rating for Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves on PlayStation 5 and PC suggests Uncharted 4's multiplayer mode continues to be removed in the remaster. Naughty Dog announced the Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves remasters of Uncharted 4: A Thief's End and spin-off Uncharted: The Lost Legacy for PS5 and PC throughout the PlayStation Showcase 2022, following rumors of an Uncharted collection with all of five games supposedly visiting PC. However, the actual release is only going to range from the franchise's two newest titles, excluding the initial Uncharted trilogy from the remastered package.
Naughty Dog first brought multiplayer to Uncharted franchise with Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. A departure from the original game (that was a strictly solo affair), Uncharted 2 multiplayer had several game modes, including co-op, where players could casually gain levels characters, unlock new weapons and perks, and battle it across numerous maps from the single-player campaign. Multiplayer mode saw a comeback in Uncharted 3 and was later added to Uncharted 4 in an update, which featured an overhauled in-game store and included features from the base game. Sadly, Uncharted 4 multiplayer was less popular than previous installments', and prominent team-based multiplayer FPS Overwatch released the same month in 2022.
According for an ESRB rating (via VGC), the Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves remaster collection will not feature the return of Uncharted 4 multiplayer. The PS5 and PC rating states the gathering will not have any “Interactive Elements,” which includes user interactions, location sharing, the sale of digital goods or services, and unrestricted internet access. Though unconfirmed by PlayStation or Naughty Dog, this likely means the PS5 and PC versions of Uncharted 4 won't release with the multiplayer mode included.
Despite being renowned for blockbuster single-player games, Naughty Dog is constantly on the add multiplayer games modes to the titles, because the Last of Us's multiplayer mode was praised for its brutal and tactical gameplay. Naughty Dog is currently developing an untitled standalone multiplayer spin-off from the Last people Part II, and a recent confirmation revealed will still be being produced.
The removal of multiplayer from Legacy of Thieves isn't unprecedented, as Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection excluded multiplayer, too. Based on that, Sony might be executing exactly the same plan with the Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves at the begining of 2022. It appears unlikely to become added, but Uncharted 4's multiplayer mode's absence has yet to be officially confirmed or denied. A definitive answer will likely be provided soon, possibly once pre-orders go live.
