Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us will not make it out in 2012, Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida has said.
“We are not ready to talk about 2013. But some of the games we showed like God of War and The Last of Us are not coming out this year,” Yoshida told VG247.
“We will talk more about what our line-up of games will be like in 2013. PS Vita we just launched. It’s been just four months.
“It’s its second year next year; it’s a really crucial year for us so we will continue to invest in making games from our first party studio standpoint, and at the same time, we would like to see more publishers do games like Assassin’s Creed III Liberation; that is fantastic.”
Neither Naughty Dog or Sony has ever tied a release date to the title, however, a late 2012 or early 2013 release has been suggested. We can rule out the former, at least.
