Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us was originally released back in 2013 for the Sony PS3 console, but later found its way onto the PS4. Given that it’s been almost 10 years since the original release, and how much gaming tech has advanced, some might argue that bringing it onto the PS5 would make it seem kind of dated.
The good news is that if you enjoyed the game but would love to play it on the PS5, you might be interested to learn that according to a tweet by tipster Tom Henderson, he claims that based on his sources, the remake of the game is nearly finished and could possibly launch in the second half of 2022.
If this sounds familiar, it is because it’s not the first time we’re hearing about this. It was back in April of 2021 that a report from Bloomberg claimed that a remake of the game for the PS5 was in development, so Henderson’s tweet is now telling us when we might be able to expect it.
Keep in mind that this is a remake of the game, not a remaster. This means that in essence, it would almost be like a new game with new graphics and maybe even new features, but presumably the core would be kept the same since it was what made the game so popular in the first place.
We’re not sure how different the game will be compared to the original, but for fans of the series or for those who have never played it, it could be worth looking forward to.
