"The Last of Us Remastered" release date on PS4 has been teased by Bruce Straley. According to a report from Gaming Bolt on June 5, the game director confirmed that Naughty Dog has an official launch date for the port. However, the studio is not willing to share the information just yet.

The website believes that an announcement could be made is just several days at E3 2014. A media briefing is going to be held by Sony Computer Entertainment on June 9 in Los Angeles during the late afternoon. "The Last of Us" has been a major part of the previous conferences at E3 2012 and E3 2013. In fact, the original PS3 game was officially released a day after last year's Electronic Entertainment Expo.

A retailer recently posted what appears to be "The Last of Us Remastered" release date. However, a spokesperson from the shopping company admitted that it was not official. Currently, the video game is still being planned for this summer, with some fans believing that the software product could be arriving at around E3 2014.

Naughty Dog is giving fans some extra incentives to purchase the PS4 game. The already impressive-looking PS3 title has been upgraded with 1080p native resolution support in addition to new lighting and better character models. The development team is also trying to increase the frame rate to 60 per second on the next-generation console. Some of the gameplay elements will be improved as well. Finally, the two multiplayer expansions and single-player DLC campaign are included on the Blu-ray disc.

Naughty Dog admitted that all of the extra contents may have pushed the storage on the disc to its limits. Otherwise, the development of the port is apparently going smoothly. With the lack of exclusive software on the PS4, a port of "The Last of Us" should help bolster the lineup of the next-generation system.
