The rumors were right. Naughty Dog and Sony have indeed planned to give a second life to the first The Last Of Us. Indeed, the manufacturer spilled the beans by mistake on the Playstation Direct site. The remake is expected on PS5 and PC on September 2, 2022.
On the Playstation Direct site, players can buy consoles, accessories and games from Playstation studios directly from the manufacturer. From time to time, the site updates its catalog, sometimes voluntarily, and others not…
As reported by our colleagues from the specialized site Kotaku, Sony has mistakenly published the product sheet of the remake of the first The Last Of Us, thus leaving no doubt about the existence of this redesign. Of course, all information was quickly deleted, but the Internet never forgets anything. Here is what we could read on the page of the game on Playstation Direct.

“Experience the moving storytelling and unforgettable characters of Joel and Ellie in The Last of Us, winner of over 200 Game of the Year awards and now rebuilt for Playstation 5. Enjoy a total overhaul of the original experience, faithfully reproduced but incorporating modernized gameplay, improved controls and expanded accessibility options. Plus, feel immersed with enhanced effects and enhanced exploration and combat,” announced Sony.
A collector’s edition, which will be called The Last of Us Part 1 Firefly Editionwill include the game’s full campaign plus the additional Left Behind chapter, a limited-edition SteelBook box set, the reissue of The Last of Us: American Dreams comic book, and early in-game unlocks.
As a reminder, the first rumors about the remake of The Last of Us date from April 2021. According to renowned journalist Jason Schreier, the project was in the hands of Visual Arts Service Group, a small team based in San Diego who used to lend a hand to major Sony studios, such as Naughty Dog or Santa Monica.
But according to the journalist, Sony would have finally decided to withdraw the management of the project from Visual Arts Service Group for the benefit of Naughty Dog, the dads of The Last of Us Part 1 and Part 2. The surprise being spoiled, we suspect that Sony will soon officially reveal the existence of the remake of The Last Of Us. Maybe tonight during the Summer Game Fest who knows?
