Retailer clarifies 'The Last of Us: Remastered' PS4 release date rumor

Game has posted a clarification in regards to the release date of the upcoming PS4 title, "The Last of Us: Remastered." According to a report from Gamepur on June 3, the European retailer originally posted a release date of June 13 for the port. A representative from the retail chain has clarified that the date was a misprint, adding that it was done by an overeager member of the staff.

The spokesperson apologized for the listing and promised that a new update will be provided once they get an official confirmation from Sony Computer Entertainment. The publisher had to announce "The Last of Us: Remastered" earlier than expected due to several leaks, including a slip-up from a member of the executive team. Only a summer release window has been confirmed for the software product so far.

The rumored release date is just one day before the one year anniversary of "The Last of Us" on the PS3, which came out last year on June 14. The original game was temporary the fastest-selling game on the current-generation console before being dethroned by "GTA 5" last autumn season. In total, it has sold six million copies in less than a year.

"The Last of Us: Remastered" bundles multiple products. In addition to the "The Last of Us" video game, which comes with several enhancements, the collection also adds the three major DLC expansions. One of the packs features a single-player campaign prologue starring Ellie, one of the main characters in the story. However, the inclusions of the expansions make it somewhat tricky for Sony Computer Entertainment to enable an upgrade option so that existing owners of "The Last of Us" on the PS3 only have to pay a small fee to get the PS4 port.

Naughty Dog has confirmed that they are currently looking into the upgrade situation. "The Last of Us: Remastered" has a standalone price tag of $59.99. You can find the official PS4 box art from the official Playstation Facebook page with the photo attached near the top of this article.
