One of the best PS3 releases of 2013, and a Game of the Year contender, is Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us. Though the game went on to sell incredibly well in North America and worldwide, many gamers held hope that its late-generation release would lead to an eventual PS4 port of the title. On Oct. 17, Naughty Dog spoke on the possibility of The Last of Us being ported to the PS4, according to a report by Eurogamer.com.
Having sold over a million copies in North America during its opening month, it seems that Naughty Dog is not interested in doing a PS4 port of The Last of Us – or at least not at this time.
"We have no plans to do that," Naughty Dog's Eric Monacelli shared on the PlayStation blog.
Eurogamer notes that Naughty Dog’s Christophe Balestra previously told them that The Last of Us was made with higher resolution than what is seen in-game.
"We always create our assets at a higher resolution than what you see in-game," Christophe Balestra told Eurogamer. "A lot of our pipelines are already ready to move to something superior to the PS3.”
Earlier this year Pachter spoke on the topic of a PS4 port of The Last of Us – full story here.
"First-party... like what's The Last of Us going to be? That's coming out in June. Is it going to be next-gen too? Probably. My guess is that thing gets onto the next-gen. Watch Dogs is next-gen and current-gen, you know," stated Pachter.
