The Last of Us: retailers suggest possible 6 week delay

GameStop and Best Buy say the game's now launching on June 18

Online product listings for The Last of Us at US retailers GameStop and Best Buy suggest the game may have suffered a six week delay.


While Sony has announced a The Last of US release date of May 7, both retailers are now listing the PS3 exclusive for release on Tuesday June 18.

One Best Buy pre-order customer also claims to have received an email informing them of a delay to the game.

UK retailers such as GAME and ShopTo are still listing the product for release on May 7. We've left a message with Sony requesting comment on the game's release status.

Each copy of March release God of War: Ascension will include access to a The Last of Us demo, providing an early taster of one chapter from Naughty Dog's game.

Earlier this month a fresh gameplay demo for press yielded new info on the studio's first post-Uncharted title, as well as new The Last of Us screenshots.
