"We are not ready to talk about 2013. But some of the games we showed like God of War and The Last of Us are not coming out this year," he said.

The Last of Us was announced in December 2011 with no release window, but in February, a Game Informer report indicated the game would ship in either late 2012 or early 2013.

The Last of Us is Naughty Dog's first game outside of the Uncharted universe since 2005. It is a postapocalyptic survival game set in the United States that follows the efforts of main characters Joel and Ellie as they fight to survive.
