The Last of Us

Naughty Dog's upcoming postapocalyptic PlayStation 3 exclusive The Last of Us has been delayed until June 14, Sony has announced.

The game was previously scheduled to be released on May 7 but has now been delayed an additional five weeks. The June 14 release date is worldwide.

In a statement issued by Naughty Dog, the developer said, "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, our fans."

"As we entered the final phase of development for The Last of Us, we came to realise 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."
