PlayStation fans looking forward to Naughty Dog’s thriller The Last Of Us will have to wait a little bit longer. One of the most anticipated games of the year for the PlayStation console is going to be delayed for a short time. Naughty Dog announced today that the game will be released on June 14th, 2013; a little over a month from it’s original release date that was scheduled for May 7th of this year. Naughty Dog released the following statement on the PlayStation Blog regarding the delay:
The Last of Us is an ambitious project. In many ways it may be Naughty Dog’s most ambitious project to date – brand new universe and cast of characters, brand new tech, brand new genre, not to mention it’s easily the longest campaign Naughty Dog has ever made. As we entered the final phase of development for The Last of Us, we came to realize 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. 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. The extra wait will be very short and your patience will be rewarded. Update your calendars. You won’t even have to change seasons. The Last of Us will be available June 14th, 2013. Until then, know that we will be working extremely hard to deliver an experience that matches your high expectations.
