Naughty Dog has confirmed its upcoming PS3-exclusive title The Last of Us has been delayed.
The game will now launch internationally on June 14th, according to the developer. The game had previously been set to release on May 7th.
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,” Naughty Dog Creative Director Neil Druckmann stated on the US Playstation Blog. 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.”
