Naughty Dog has announced in a statement on the PlayStation Blog that the new release date for The Last Of Us is June 14th. This is a relatively short delay from its original launch date, announced at last years VGAs as May 7th.
“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.” The statement read, in part, “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 statement concluded with: “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.”
