Naughty Dog has confirmed that their upcoming game, The Last of Us, will no longer be meeting its proposed release date of the May 7th of 2013.
In a statement, the game's creative director Neil Druckmann said "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, for you, our fans."
Druckmann continued by saying "As we entered the final phase of development for The Last of Us, we came to realise 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 will now release on the June 14th, 2013, only a few weeks after the initial release date. It is being developed exclusively for the PlayStation 3.
