The Last of Us: Remastered Started Development After PS3 Version Released
Despite Naughty Dog denying the same for months on end.
Though it initially denied that it was in development, Naughty Dog has apparently been developing The Last of Us: Remastered for the PS4 since the original game was completed.
In a recent interview with PlayStation Access, Naughty Dog co-president Evan Wells stated, “We had a lot of people on the forums saying ‘can I play this on PlayStation 4?’ We had actually been anticipating that, and started working on it pretty much as soon as we finished the PlayStation 3 [version]. We weren’t sure if it was going to go anywhere, but when we saw the fans clamouring for it we doubled-down, and put more effort behind it.
“The graphic fidelity has been turned up to eleven. We’ve got 1080p, we’re pushing the draw distances further, we’re creating higher resolution character models, better lighting, better shadows.”
The Last of Us: Remastered will be out this Summer and will include all the DLC released till now, including the recently released Left Behind.
