The wait for Naughty Dog’s Ps3 exclusive post-apocalyptic action game The Last of Us is about to get a little longer with the announcement that the game is now due out on June 14th 2013.
Neil Druckmann, Creative Director at Naughty Dog, made a post announcing the delay on the PlayStation Blog this morning. Citing the fact that the extra few weeks will allow the studio to continue to polish the game, he promised it would allow them to stick to their original vision without cutting corners.
Interestingly the game is scheduled just after E3 2013 is scheduled to run, from June 11th through the 13th. We already know that the PS4 will be unveiled well before the convention; perhaps The Last of US will be one last hurrah for Sony’s seven year old platform.
Are you excited for the The Last of Us? The first hands-on previews of the game came a little while back but other than that things have been relatively quiet. Perhaps SCEA and Naughty Dog will scare up a new trailer soon.
Check out a quote from the PlayStation blog after the jump.
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.
