Sony and Naughty Dog has officially delayed The Last of Us, expected to release in May 2013. The game is being delayed so the developers can have some extra time to perfect and deliver a high quality game, as we would expect from Naughty Dog. The game’s new launch date is now just over a month later in June 2013.
Naughty Dog made the following statement:
“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.”
The Last of Us will be available on June 14th 2013.
