Naughty Dog thanks fans

In their blog yesterday, the guys at Naughty Dog announced that they are releasing two free maps for their uber-popular The Last of Us Remastered as a thanks to fans for their patience with the multiplayer problems. Some players have waited as long as 15+ minutes to get a match, and Naughty Dog is working on the matchmaking issue above all others; it is currently their number one priority to get the matchmaking problems fixed. While significant progress has been made, there's still work to do.
Over the last two weeks, we've discovered that the most significant improvements may come from working with other teams at PlayStation to make updates to some of the existing matchmaking libraries. Since we are working with multiple groups inside and outside of the studio, we don’t yet have an exact date on when these updates will roll out. Our current estimate is on the short side of weeks, rather than months. We'll be sure to keep you updated the moment we can provide more specific timing, or an actual date.
Believe me, the entire team at Naughty Dog completely understands how frustrating this has been for many of you in our community. We've got some good news. At the end of July, we teased some new multiplayer add-on content which included a glimpse at new maps for Factions. We're glad to say that we've decided to release these two maps for free on both the PS3 and PS4 in appreciation for all of your continued patience as we work to resolve the matchmaking issues.In the meantime, the developer suggests that anyone stuck waiting fora match, should quit out of matchmaking then choose "Find Match" again to try to speed it up.
We'll let you know when the next patch is ready to roll out. Until then, enjoy the maps!
