The Last of Us Remastered release date is June 20, retailers suggest

Target and Best Buy point to post E3 launch for the PS4 game

The Last of Us Remastered release date is being listed as June 20 2014 by multiple US retailers including Target and Best Buy.

Sony has yet to announce an official launch date for the recently revealed PS4 exclusive, but quotes attributed to a Turkish PlayStation spokesperson in March suggested the Naughty Dog game was being readied for release this summer.


In late March, Spanish retailer Xtralife also began carrying an online listing for The Last of Us PS4 with a June 19 release date.

The title will feature a number of improvements over 2013's The Last of Us for PS3, with Naughty Dog targeting 60fps.

Studio co-president Evan Wells says: "The graphical fidelity has been turned up to 11, we've got 1080p, we're pushing the draw distances further, we're creating higher resolution character models, better lighting, better shadows."

The Last of Us was hailed by CVG readers as the Game of the Generation, while the editorial team voted it third in the era.

Naughty Dog creative director Druckmann has said there's a 50/50 chance that a The Last of Us sequel will be developed.
