The Last of Us Delayed Until Mid-June 2013

LastofUsWhen you think of first-party exclusives from Sony Computer Entertainment, over the last year one of the biggest games holding that title is ‘The Last of Us’, which is currently under development by the team at Naughty Dog (Jak and Daxter, Uncharted). Originally we were expected to see the title released exclusively for the Playstation 3 on the 7th May 2013…. but unfortunately fans will have to wait just a tad longer than expected.

Neil Druckmann – Creative Director of Naughty Dog took to the official Playstation Blog and announced that the game will now be available on the 14th June 2013 – and that until then the team are working hard to deliver an experience that meets gamers expectations. More details on what he shared is available below:

The Last of Us is an ambitious project. In many ways it may be Naughty Dog‘s most ambitious project to date – a brand new universe and cast of characters, brand new tech, brand new genre, and not to mention it’s easily the longest campaign Naughty Dog has ever made.

As a team we pride ourselves on setting a very high quality bar for every aspect of our games – gameplay, story, art, design, technology and more. We want to make sure The Last of Us raises that bar even further – for ourselves, and most importantly, for you, our fans.

As we entered the final phase of development for The Last of Us, we came to realise just how massive Joel and Ellie’s journey is. But instead of cutting corners or compromising our vision, we came to the tough decision that the game deserved a few extra weeks to ensure every detail of The Last of Us was up to Naughty Dog’s internal high standards.
