Naughty Dog’s highly anticipated zombie, post-apocalyptic game The Last of Us has been delayed. Originally headed for release May 7th, it has been pushed back to June 14th. This story was originally revealed by product listing from Best Buy and soon after confirmed by Sony. Here is the statement from Naughty Dog:
“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, our fans.
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.“
The Last of Us will be released on Friday June 14, 2013 on PlayStation 3. Sound off in the comments below, how do you feel about the delay?
