Naughty Dog, developers of the multi-award winning Uncharted series, have recently talked to Computers and Video Games releasing word that their upcoming title, The Last of Us will be delayed by 7 weeks from its original release date. Initially scheduled to be released on the 7th of May, The Last of Us has been pushed to be released on the 18th of June.
Naughty Dog explains their reason for pushing back the scheduled date was to allow them more additional development time.
‘’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 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.’’
