Naughty Dog’s PlayStation 3 survival action-adventure game The Last of Us, which was supposed to release on May 7, 2013, has been delayed until June 14, 2013. The developer has issued a statement to Gamespot giving fans the reason behind this delay:

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.

The Last of Us - Joel and Ellie

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.

    At least it wasn’t delayed half a year like some high-budget games. For all I care, they can take their sweet time developing this. It would mean that no corners were cut in the making of this.

  • Is it weird that I am OK with this being delayed?! My back log is piling up through the roof with Tomb Raider and much much more AAA on its way … this can wait. Delays are usually a good thing (unless your Aliens: Colonial Marines).
