One of the biggest PlayStation 3-exclusive titles set for release this year is Naughty Dog’s post-apocalyptic action game The Last of Us. While Sony previously announced that the game will be released this May, the company revealed today that it will be delayed by one month.
The game’s Creative Director, Neil Druckmann, had this to say about the delay on the PlayStation Blog:
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 result of the team’s decision, the game is now scheduled for release on June 14. Interestingly, June 14 is a Friday, and not just any Friday– it’s the day immediately following this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo, or E3. This could mean that Sony plans to show the game off one final time at the expo. Regardless, 4P will continue to bring you news of this game as it comes in.
