“Will we see a The Last of Us sequel soon?” asked the CNN Turk TV presenter as he interviewed Sercan Sulun, PlayStation Turkey’s VP, on local TV. A seemingly innocuous question, and one which you would ordinarily expect to get a total non-answer to, but Sercan gave a slightly more surprising answer.
“No, a sequel is not coming right now as far as I know,” he replied “but I can say that the first game will be released this summer for PS4 as a physical and digital copy, with enchanced graphics.”
The news reaches our shores by way of translation by NeoGAF user Quirah, confirmed by a second user, as he noted the plainly stated revelation during the 36th minute of the broadcast which, just in case you can speak Turkish, can be found on multiplayer.com.tr.
I’m sure that fingers are now being firmly crossed that Sercan did not get his facts wrong and that we will in fact get an even prettier version of TLOU to enjoy this summer. Keep them crossed overnight, and we’ll ask Sony in the morning for some further details.
Until then, sleep tight and mind the clickers don’t bite.
UPDATE: “At no time have we announced that The Last of Us is coming to PS4 and therefore, have nothing to say on the subject,” a Sony Computer Entertainment Europe spokesperson told Eurogamer.
