The Last of Us Remastered, a PS4 remake of last-year's award-winning PS3 game, was originally slated for a "Summer 2014" release when it was revealed earlier this month. But it looks like we might have a potentially more precise date to tie to the game.

Target, GameFly, and Best Buy are all listing the game as coming out June 20, 2014. However, Amazon lists the game's release date as December 31, 2014.

The June date may be a placeholder or just a guess from someone entering in release dates for the game, but it's interesting that it matches across three major retailers. We've reached out to the stores and Sony for confirmation, and we'll update this story when we have more details.

The date is notable both for falling on a Friday and coming the week after this year's E3.

The $60 game is being developed internally at Naughty Dog, and they're aiming to have the game to run at 1080p/60fps with "higher resolution character models, better lighting, and better shadows," according to Naughty Dog co-president Evan Wells.
