Rumour: The Last of Us PS4 Takes Aim on 20th June

Fungus in focus

Retailers appear to be gathering around a 20th June release date for Naughty Dog’s hotly anticipated re-release, The Last of Us Remastered. The ever observant GameSpot noted that top North American outlets such as GameFly and Best Buy have all coalesced around the post-E3 date, which makes perfect sense for the platform holder. Sony previously said that it was targeting a summer launch.

Of course, it’s unclear whether this is merely a case of the above stores playing follow the leader, or simply having a good guess. currently lists the upgrade’s release as 31st December, so it clearly hasn’t received any additional information from the platform holder. It remains to be seen whether the abovementioned outfits have been in contact with the firm. Nevertheless, with summer only a couple of months away, we’re sure that we’ll be learning more imminently.

Date seems a little too soon for me unless they started working on this port as soon as the Ps3 version went gold! If so, why didn't they just release it on Ps4?

@MadchesterManc Naughty Dog did indeed confirm that they started development on the PS4 version right after they finished the PS3 version of the game...and for why they didn't release the game on the PS4 in the first place? I don't know, but the install base of 80+ million PS3s, thus meaning 80+ million potential buyers might have had something to do with this decision.

I can't wait for this. Finally I will be able to see what all the hype for this game is all about.

@Reverend_Skeeve I guess they didn't announce its existence straight away as it makes sense to maintain radio silence when they have upcoming DLC to hawk. If people get wind of a better looking edition that includes all the optional extras then they'll just wait for that to come out instead and save their money

I'm somebody else who hasn't played it at all so the whole TLOU experience is going to be pretty fresh for me and I'm REALLY looking forward to it

Best Buy has since changed the June 20th placeholder date to December 31st
