Recurring leaker and freelance games journalist Tom Henderson has shared some interesting rumors pertaining to a remake of Naughty Dog’s original post-apocalyptic hit, The Last of Us.
According to Henderson’s tweets posted yesterday afternoon, a remake of The Last of Us not only exists but is already close to completion, with a potential release date set for the latter half of 2022. The original game was released on June 14, 2013, for the PlayStation 3 console.
“Heard from multiple people now that the TLOU remake is nearly finished and could release during the latter half of 2022,” Henderson stated.
Henderson goes on to share claims regarding additional The Last of Us projects that Naughty Dog is supposedly working on. These include a multiplayer mode for The Last of Us Part II and a director’s cut of the game, but it’s unclear when they might be released.
“With TLOU2 MP and TLOU 2 directors cut – I’ve heard they are coming too – But I don’t know exactly when/how,” tweeted Henderson.
“Them all releasing together could be a good compromise if GOW got delayed to Q1 2023 – But that’s just speculation on my end for the moment.”
Naughty Dog released a performance patch for The Last of Us Part II in May that allowed the critically acclaimed game to be enjoyed at 60 FPS on PlayStation 5 consoles. The director’s cut, assuming it really exists, will presumably include additional content that was left out of the original game for time limitations or other reasons.
