The Last of Us Pushed Back To 14th June Release

Described As ‘Easily The Longest Campaign Naughty Dog Has Ever Made’

Naughty Dog’s upcoming The Last of Us has had its release date pushed back ever so slightly, Neil Druckmann, the developer’s creative director, announced on the PlayStation Blog.

However, Druckmann seemed in bullish mood that the game would deliver. He wrote:

“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 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 14th June 2013. Until then, know that we will be working extremely hard to deliver an experience that matches your high expectations.”

One of the AAA titles of the year, The Last of Us could very well be the last of the great PlayStation 3 exclusives, joining the likes of Uncharted and Killzone. Rumours are always abound when a game is delayed, fact is, it takes a lot of bottle to delay a game and not cut corners to meet a release date. We say it’ll still rock.
