There have been several rumors that point to the release of The Last of Us Remake in 2022. Now a journalist at GamesBeat, during the latest episode of the Kinda Funny Podcast, quoted several sources who mention that the PlayStation 5 remake of The Last of Us will be released later this year in the holiday season.
The Last of Us Remake To Release This Holiday Season
We are still waiting for an official announcement of The Last of Us Remake, but the game keeps coming back in the rumor circuit. Reportedly, it seems that Naughty Dog is working on the game and according to journalist Jeff Grubb, the game is slated for release at the end of this year.
“I keep hearing that’s coming out this year,” Jeff Grubb declared on this latest episode of Kinda Funny Gamescast. “The Last of Us remake this holiday. I’m pretty confident about that too.”
According to reports, Grubb is not the only person to mention the existence of the remake of the game. During the start of this year, Tom Henderson, another insider, came up with a similar message.
In addition, Bloomberg reported in April last year that Sony was developing a remake of 2013’s The Last of Us for the PS3. The project would be in the hands of the PlayStation Visual Arts Service Group, before moving on to Naughty Dog. The studio of the original game has been working on the remake since June 2020, following the release of The Last of Us Part 2.
This isn’t the first time the topic of a The Last of Us remake release has come up – previous rumors also pointed to a release later this year. With several sources pointing in the same direction, the possibility of having a remake of The Last of Us at the end of the year becomes stronger, a good period for major releases.
It is worth mentioning that the news this time is about a thorough remake, so it’s likely that the jump between the new version and previous releases will be much larger than between the original PlayStation 3 title and the PS4 remaster.
