Upcoming horror/survival video game “The Last of Us” has been delayed. IGN reports that Sony has informed them the game’s original release date of May 7th, 2013 has been pushed back until June 14th, 2013.
“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.”
“The Last of Us” takes place in a post-apocalyptic world where a fungal infection has turned most people into hive-minded, cannibalistic monsters (but not technically zombies, according to Naughty Dog). In the game, you play Joel, with Ellie as your invaluable partner in surviving the wasteland of what once was civilization.
