(Confirmed) The Last of Us gets Delayed

Just the other day, some people who had pre-ordered The Last of Us from Best Buy were receiving emails saying that the game had been moved to a June 18th release date. The game was originally slated for a May 7, 2012 release. Naughty Dog has a great track record of not only releasing excellent games, but also making the date that they had previously announced, so no one really knew what to think until today. Naughty Dog confirmed today via the PlayStation Blog that the game was in fact being delayed until June 14, 2013.

They said, "As we entered the final phase of development for The Last of Us, we came to realize 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."
"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, for you, our fans."
At least we wont have to wait too extra long to enjoy this wonderful looking game. Hopefully this will give Naughty Dog the extra time needed to make it a masterpiece.
