Naughty Dog has no plans to port its PlayStation 3 game The Last of Us to the PlayStation 4, the developer has said.

Asked by a fan on the PlayStation Blog (via Videogamer) if Naughty Dog would consider bringing the postapocalyptic action game to the next-generation console, community strategist Eric Monacelli said, "We have no plans to do that."

The Last of Us was released in June to a positive critical reception and initial shipments of 3 million copies. New multiplayer downloadable content for the game was released yesterday, while a single-player expansion is due out later this year or early next.

It was confirmed at the 2013 Electronic Entertainment Expo in June that Naughty Dog is now working on a PS4 game, though no details about this project have come to light yet.

I was seriously expecting the ol' super duper extended GOTY limited deluxe director's slut edition announcement of this game for the PS4, so I never bought it. Now that I've waited this long, I may not bother at all with X One and PS4 right around the corner. I wonder how many others were waiting.

It's a smart move they said that. If it was for PS4, their sales would decline because those who haven't played would just wait for the PS4 version instead.

You do know that this game came out in June, right? Do you think that there are many people who have been waiting to hear this news so that they can meke the decision? I doubt it. The game has sold very well and there are hardly any potential buyers left today, so if they wanted they could move the project to PS4 as well.

I don't see many PS3 games getting ported with Gakai streaming supposedly on the way. If the stream quality is good, and overall Gakai works well, it's a far better choice than spending the money to do an actual port.

It would be a waste of time to bring this game on PS4.

That's a shame. Would have been nice to see this game in full 1080p. The game's beautifully depressing design deserved it.

<< LINK REMOVED >> While new IP would be great they came out with The Last of Us not too long ago and I imagine that's their main focus.


I wouldn't mind if they want to rotate IP releases (I'm excited for anything from Naughty Dog), but I'd much rather them to focus on The Last of Us, do all they plan to do with it, and then move on to the next IP. I'm probably a bit biased though, I'm dying to continue on Joel and Ellie's journey.

No surprise there, but I can say one thing, and I think everyone will agree - this game would benefit from it.

I mean, this game painfuly showed that this console cycle was way, way too long and it should've ended at least 2 years ago. I mean, when top-notch Sony studio that pushed the graphics with Uncharted 2 and 3, can't make a game with consistent 30 FPS, you know something is very wrong.

But I hope there will be more patches to fix the bugs and not only multiplayer things

<< LINK REMOVED >>while working on a new IP is fine but...

I from many people... are not tired about Uncharted. Is someone forcing you to play ? no ? then you should skip the game when theres a new Uncharted AND not buying it. Simple as 1,2, and 3....

<< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >> It's not as if Uncharted is getting boring. Every sequel improves upon the next such as better motion capture, huger landscapes, jaw dropping moments, unique story, better mechanics. Personally, I prefer U2 than U3, but U3 is just as amazing if you think about the Tanker, the Mansion, the Air Plane, the Desert, etc.

Naughty Dog seems to be the leading innovator in the third person shooter genre, so I believe they'll live up to expectations if there is a U5 (don't forget Golden Abyss).

@00LiteYear @roman4545 @bubba_1988 That air plane mission was bullshit. It was expecting something a long the lines of the building collapse in U2, instead what we got was firefight behind some crates and a cut scene of parachuting. Not taking anything away from ND, but I think MGS games are far more innovative.

Why not? My friend could avoid picking up a ps3 and play this wonderful game on the ps4. If they could have made ps4 backwards compatible we wouldn't even need to be asking for this.

Like someone else said, some one else might make this happen anyway right? I could see this on psn as a download for either console later down the line.

That's great news. Just give us the god damn SP DLC that has been haunting our dreams for months, and move to PS4. Not that the MP is bad, it's excellent, but SP is the reason you got my money. The MP is good if you play 20 matches every couple of days. (Although the new Customization Items have ridiculous unlocking requirements.)

The Last of Us belongs on PS3; it was the greatest send-off the system could ever ask for. A sequel with new characters though I would love to see along with an Uncharted and Jak 4 on next gen.

I'd rather they focused on making next-gen games instead of porting existing ones.

Too bad for them. I like many people, don't have a PS3 and so I won't be able to play this unless they bring it to the PS4.

<< LINK REMOVED >> Sorry guy, you're a minority. PS3 was the second best-selling console this gen, and I'm certain that people that own a Wii exclusively never really cared for games like this.

They don't need to do a direct sequel with Joel and Ellen Page...err I mean Ellie. They could follow the same time line of another family, scientist or even some college kid stuck in his dorm trying to ride it out (remember that in TLoU? lol)

There are so many options and variations. Imagine how awesome another version of TLoU could be on the next gen. Naughty Dog would be foolish not to consider it.

I agree with people when they say they don't want any more additions to the Joel and Ellie story that could ruin it. Because lets face it, it was fine the way it was. But I think there's more to be had from The Last of Us universe. And lets not forget the surprise success of the online multiplayer. Imagine what they could do to improve that.

Too bad because I haven't owned a PS3 in about 3 years and I "was" an Xbox 360 user. This game was the ONLY PS3 game that interested me but not enough to buy a whole new console. I am disappointed to not have played this or will ever be able to. This is the bullshit of console exclusivity.

It doesn't need a port. The game is already visually stunning. Just wait for the next gen sequel.

That's a good decision because majority of gamers would want to see a new IP to come to PS4 from ND rather than the same PS3 game on a PS4.
