The Last of Us Remastered release date tipped for August 7

The Last of Us Remastered release date has been tipped for August 7 by one retailer.

Despite quite a few retailers in Europe suggesting the full HD version of The Last of Us will arrive around June 20, the latest indicator points to a delayed August 7 launch.

New Zealand-based retailer Mighty Ape has released an email to its customers with pre-orders in place for the game suggesting it might not arrive until early August.

“Just letting you know that our suppliers have advised us today that the estimated New Zealand release date for The Last of Us Remastered – PS4 has changed from 13/06/2014 to 07/08/2014 today”.

What is interesting is that this was the release date tipped by NeoGAF user ShdwDrake. This user correctly predicted The Last of Us Remastered launch claiming to have received insider information.

This date was originally dismissed due to the majority of retailers listing a June release, but this could well be more in-line with what Naughty Dog have in mind.

Sometimes New Zealand and Australian sources get details like this ahead of time thanks to the time difference, with the countries being at least nine hours ahead of the UK and 15 ahead of the US.

Sony has yet to develop the original Summer 2014 release date window, but we’ll keep you posted if there are any developments.

The Last of Us Remastered is a full 1080p HD version of the game exclusive to the PS4, which will come bundled with all the existing DLC content including the additional Left Behind single-player campaign.

“Moving our efforts to the PS4 has allowed us to remaster an already phenomenal looking The Last of US in 1080p with a list of upgrades including higher resolution character models, improved shadows and lighting, upgraded textures, along with even more improvements,” said Arne Meyer, Naughty Dog’s Community Strategist said when announcing the game.
