The Last of Us Delayed

Last-Of-us-Title

Naughty Dog confirmed today that The Last of Us will not be releasing on May 7th, but instead has been moved to June 14th.

Naughty Dog released the following statement 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 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, for you, our fans

So just a small delay for The Last of Us so Naughty Dog can get the game up to their standards. Now go change your calendars to June 14th, 2013.

Just a nerd from the Windy City. I’m actually really bad at describing myself because I get all self-critical and self-conscious. Follow me on Twitter, @The1stMJC, to see my borderline insane rants on tv shows and other non important subjects. If I’m not tweeting I’m probably just watching Buffy or Firefly for the millionth time.

      I also have no problem with them taking their time. Plus a Summer release might work out better for them since it’s less crowded.

    Thank you for having mercy on my wallet for a little longer.
