Naughty Dog has confirmed that The Last of Us has been delayed into June.

According to a statement from the firm, the new release date will be worldwide on June 14.

“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,” a Naughty Dog statement VG247 received via email read. “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 realize 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.”

The same statement is also available on the PS Blog.

The game was announced for a May 7 release during the VGAs in December last year.
