New Naughty Dog title delayed, confirms Sony

by on15 February 2013

The Last of Us is pushed back to a June release

Sony has confirmed that the new Naughty Dog title called The Last of Us has been delayed. The delay will see the title moved back an additional five weeks to a new worldwide release date of June 14th. The news comes as a bit of a surprise, as everything to this point has been about the title being on track for release.

The survival horror title is apparently being delayed by what Naughty Dog claims is its need to set a very high quality bar for every aspect of the game; and the developer wants to make sure that the title raises the bar and lives up to the very high internal standards of the developer.

With the delay, this will see The Last of Us ship the week of E3, and it is hard to say what the expected impact will be on all of the other Sony announcements of the PS4 and the titles to go with it. Both Sony and Naughty Dog say that the decision to delay the title was a difficult one, but that it was better than compromising the original vision they had for the game.
