No official confirmation from developer Naughty Dog
Eurogamer reports that one of the best games of last year on the PS3, The Last of Us, is heading to a new platform next summer. The tip comes from a Sony PlayStation Eurasian Software market manager named Sercan Sulun.
Take this tip with a grain of salt, this guy is an unknown for Sony, and no official confirmations have been offered by Naughty Dog or Sony. Sulun says that the game will hit the PS4 this summer. That is a rather vague launch date but it's nice to hear that the game is coming.
We'll feel better when some confirmation is offered. Sulun also said that the PS4 version would have the DLC content Left Behind rolled into the game when it launches.
"There is no information about a new The Last of Us game but I can share this knowledge; as of this summer, The Last of Us will be on the PS4. Both on PSN and physically," Sulun said (translated by IGN).
"The PS4 version will also include the DLC so you will be able to play 'Left Behind' as well."
Naughty Dog hasn't been forthcoming with details on when the game would hit the PS4 in the past. The only thing that has been said by the developer is, "We're just getting our Naughty Dog engine up and running on PS4 as we work on the next Uncharted project," community manager Eric Monacelli said back in February. "We will see what the future brings!"
