There are rumours this morning that Naughty Dog’s The Last Of Us may have had its release date pushed back to June 18th, six weeks from the previously confirmed May 7th release date.
The rumours started after US retailer Best Buy sent out an email to customers who pre-ordered The Last Of Us, informing them that the game had been pushed back to June 18th.
This would give Sony another shot at pushing the game at E3, too.
However, while GameSpot have also listed the game for June, Amazon, GAME and Shopto all still have the release date as May 7th as of this morning. So the question remains whether a couple of US retailers have made a mistake, or if the other shops have yet to update their listings and inform customers. No doubt we’ll hear more on this today.
We’ve contacted Sony for comment and hopefully they’ll be able to confirm if the release date for The Last of Us has been delayed, or that this is a mistake on the retailer’s part.
