The last of We part 1 is coming. Again. Naughty Dog co-chair Neil Druckmann announced the news today during the Summer Game Fest, the opening event of this year’s pseudo-E3. The game is making the leap from its PlayStation 3 origins to a “full remake” for PS5.
Unfortunately, Druckmann arrives a little late for the party. Sony leaked the news via PlayStation Direct before today’s revelation.
Leaks occur all the time in games. And for Naughty Dog, the lightning bolts have dropped twice. In 2020, before its expected sequel, The Last of Us Part IIthe filters broadcast key information about the game, including the main points of the plot.
What stands out especially in this case is not the leak, but the remake remained the most important news of the event. The otherwise meek launch of the Summer Game Fest shot up with a variety of titles, including Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Knights of Gotham, Aliens: Dark Descenti Stormgatea new game from the previous one StarCraft 2 developers. Smaller titles, such as Neon Whitegot release dates (June 16) and Coffee Stain Studio showed a new one Goat simulator. Compared to the booming events of previous years, it was a strangely muted showcase.
If it seems a little early to redo The last of us“He’s not even a decade old.” An adaptation of the HBO game, starring HBO, is currently underway Game of Thrones starring Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey. And, according to Sony, its sequel, The Last of Us Part II, has sold over 10 million copies. Naughty Dog also has more plans to expand the franchise with a standalone multiplayer game, a task that requires the studio to grow “significantly” to achieve this.
Anyway, if you’ve ever missed the original game on PS3, or again as a remaster of PS4, you’ll have a chance to play an upgraded version on PS5 on September 2nd. It’s also in development for PC, because you probably haven’t. seen the last.
