Sony has announced yesterday that the release of Naughty Dog’s new game, The Last of Us, has been postponed to June 14. Prior to this, the game was scheduled to land on stores on May 7. In a statement issued by 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.
Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us is a post-apocalyptic game, which will be released as a PlayStation 3-exclusive title.
