The widely-rumored PS5 remake of The Last of United states of america could release as soon as “this holiday”, according to a recent report.
The report comes by way of GamesBeat’southward Jeff Grubb as part of the the May xviii episode of the Kind of Funny Gamescast
(opens in new tab). “I keep hearing that’s coming out this year […] The Concluding of Us remake this holiday, yep,” Grubb said during the episode. “I’m pretty confident about that also […] I recall it probably is one of their big holiday games this twelvemonth.”
In response to the idea that this would exist a speedy release for Naughty Dog, Grubb pointed out that “The Terminal of United states of america Function two came out a while agone” adding, “it’s a pretty efficient, well-oiled machine over at Naughty Dog and they wouldn’t have to practise besides much ‘cause that’s the whole point, is that this is a game that they could update actually rapidly.”

This isn’t the starting time we’ve heard reports of a potential latter half of 2022 release date for a PS5 remake of The Last of Us. It was dorsum in January of this yr that writer and manufacture insider, Tom Henderson, reported he had heard from multiple sources that the remake is “nearly finished”; a merits that was backed up by VGC
(opens in new tab), which said it had heard similar information from its ain sources.
Fifty-fifty before that, a 2021 report from Bloomberg claimed that a PS5 remake of The Concluding of Us was in the works. In that report, it was said that Sony’s Visual Arts studio had initially been working on the remake earlier Naughty Dog took over the projection. That was quite a while ago now, though no potential release date was mentioned at that fourth dimension.
Analysis: Still waiting on something official
There have been enough of credible reports around the thought of a PS5 remake of The Last of U.s. but we still haven’t heard anything official from PlayStation or Naughty Domestic dog. A remake does, all the same, make sense.
Naughty Canis familiaris’s co-president Neil Druckmann said earlier this twelvemonth that the studio has
“multiple game projects”
underway that he is “dying to share”, so it’south possible that a PS5 remake of The Terminal of U.s. is one of them. The game originally released on PS3 all the way dorsum in 2013 before it was remastered for PS4 the following year. Would a leap onto PS5 be all that surprising? It’s an approach that seems to exist working for K Theft Auto 5.
Aside from this, at that place’s currently a Last of Us Television set prove in the pipeline for HBO, which is currently expected to release former next year. It’south possible that the game and the Goggle box show could benefit one another, with Grubb addressing this later in the episode:
“As long as that thing is relatively fresh and there on shelves,” he explains, “it should see a boost when information technology comes out. Then when the show comes out, another boost. That is their expectation.”
As it is, the PS5 remake of The Terminal of Usa is still only part of the rumor mill, with no official confirmations from Sony or Naughty Dog to speak of. That said, with Summer Game Fest approaching, we are expecting some exciting announcements from across the games industry over the side by side month. Could this exist one of them?
Something we do, at least, know that Naughty Dog is working on, however, is a standalone multiplayer release for the series. Naughty Dog
it would sit separately to The Last of Us ii back in 2022, explaining that “the vision of the team grew across an boosted manner.”
In September 2021, the studio provided an update, confirming that the projection was however in development and that it was in “total swing of hiring for MP-related positions.” Every bit yet, it doesn’t have a release date.
