Indeed but with the large success of the game it’s worth investing in if the MP is even somewhat popular.It is bad.
Driveclub was a shambles, and the rest of the AAA games there are primarily single player with MP tacked on. The VR games never caught on and are (from Sony's POV) just inexpensive little projects.
Of those only GTS is a great example.
The MP will need a lot more content than the MP of TLOU1 (and even UC4) to excel as a standalone.
