Naughty Dog’s new survival action game The Last of Us has been delayed slightly, and will now release on 14th June.
Posting on the PlayStation Blog, studio creative director Neil Druckmann said, “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 game was initially scheduled for release on 7th May, but a couple of US retailers had altered the date on their websites a couple of days ago, suggesting that the game was being pushed back.
Druckmann also called The Last of Us the longest campaign Naughty Dog has ever made.
“In many ways it may be Naughty Dog's most ambitious project to date - a brand new universe and cast of characters, brand new tech, brand new genre, and not to mention it's easily the longest campaign Naughty Dog has ever made.”
The Last of Us is scheduled for release exclusively on PS3.
