The rumored release date for the PS4 game, "The Last of Us Remastered," may have changed. According to a report from Dual Shockers on May 11, Mighty Ape has informed customers who have already pre-ordered the software product that the item won't be shipping on June 13 as originally listed. Instead, the next-generation port of "The Last of Us" is now slated to arrive on Aug. 7.

Sony Computer Entertainment only officially committed to a summer release for "The Last of Us Remastered." A representative from Naughty Dog recently responded to concerns from fans about the software product potentially being delayed after several other retailers decided to change the release date to Dec. 31. He reassured fans that the end of the year date is a placeholder and that the item should come out in the summer.

The development team did admit that one of the main challenges with regards to the PS4 port is the limited disc space of the Blu-Ray. The cut scenes got remastered to 1080p while some of the character textures also got improved. These two factors, along with the inclusions of the three DLC packs, increased the file size of the video game.

Along with the PS4 port of "The Last of Us," Naughty Dog has a much bigger team working on the next game of the popular "Uncharted" series. The tentatively-titled "Uncharted 4" could be shown at E3 2014 even after some potential production turmoil that caused the two main directors to leave and one of the cast members to be re-casted. The first real-time footage, which should include some gameplay snippets, is rumored to be shown during the press conference of Sony Computer Entertainment, which will be taking place on June 9.
