It looks like The Last Of Us remake is heading to PS5 later this year according to industry insider Tom Henderson. Likely aiming to capitalise on the success of the impending TV series, which will air towards the end of this year according to rumours.
Little is known about the remake. It will however likely be more expansive than the PS4 remaster. Rumours seem to suggest it is built using the same engine as The Last Of Us Part 2. Sony could then bundle both titles together on PlayStation 5. That’s sheer speculation though.
Henderson tweeted about the rumoured title yesterday. The journalist stated: “Heard from multiple people now that the TLOU remake is nearly finished and could release during the latter half of 2022.”
is it even real tho?
Sony has not yet officially confirmed the existence of the remaster. However, Naughty Dog head Noel Druckman hinted at the existence of multiple titles earlier this week during CES. Appearing during Sony’s keynote, Druckman stated he is “dying to share the multiple game projects” Naughty Dog is working on.
The Last Of Us originally launched in 2013 on the PlayStation. Critically lauded by fans and critics alike, the game set a new standard for narrative delivery, animation and storytelling. The popularity of the series led to the announcement of a HBO TV show that will feature Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey as Joel and Ellie respectively.
Naughty Dog is also working on its first multiplayer only title. The studio posted a job hiring in June last year, which stated the project would be a multiplayer title. The job description said that candidates would: “create avenues for self-expression for our players, ensure robust longevity to our games, and give our players great rewards to strive for.”
Elsewhere, Sony has announced more details of its upcoming PSVR2 headset, along with the reveal of an exclusive Horizon VR title.
