Naughty Dog‘s upcoming survival horror action-adventure The Last of Us has been delayed by five weeks, Sony has announced.
In a statement issued to Gamespot, the developer said “as a team we pride ourselves on setting a very high quality bar for every aspect of our games–gameplay, story, art, design, technology and more. We want to make sure The Last of Us raises that bar even further – for ourselves, and most importantly, our fans.”
“As we entered the final phase of development for The Last of Us, we came to realise just how massive Joel and Ellie’s journey is. But instead of cutting corners or compromising our vision, we came to the tough decision that the game deserved a few extra weeks to ensure every detail of The Last of Us was up to Naughty Dog’s internal high standards.”
The Last of Us was previously scheduled to release on May 7, but now it’ll hit stores worldwide on June 14, 2013 for PS3.
