The Last of Us should have the right to a remake and today, a leak suggests the possibility of a release this year. The thing is believable given that the adapted HBO series is also slated to air in 2022.
Naughty Dog is reportedly working on a remake of The Last of Us first name. If nothing has been officially disclosed, the leaks are rife. Today, journalist Tom Henserson, who hits the mark often, gives more details.
In a tweet, he claims that the cult game’s remake is nearing completion and that the exit window would be set for the second half of 2022. In his tweet, he also shares a video montage in which he points out the presence of Joel and Ellie (the heroes of the game) in the presentation conference of the PS VR 2. Why put a visual of a 2013 game in a keynote in 2022?
The Last of Us Remake scheduled for this year?
In any case, the release of a remake would make sense. The game, while still excellent, is starting to get old. As a reminder, it was released on PS3 in 2013. There was certainly a remaster in 2014 on PS4, but it remains a relatively old title which now suffers from the comparison with the second installment, technically far above. With a remake, players who were too young at the time could discover this story in optimal conditions. Releasing a remake would also make it possible to surf the broadcast of the adapted series scheduled for this year on HBO. If the latter is a success, the good sales of the remake are assured.

Naughty Dog’s latest game is The Last of Us 2 (2020) and 2022 will be a big year for the studio. In addition to this supposed remake and the series, Uncharted Legacy of Thieves Collection will soon hit PC and PS5. Even more, the movie adaptation starring Tom Holland will hit theaters in February.
In addition to that, Neil Druckmann, the president of the studio, has announced that he is working on multiple projects. One of them would be a multiplayer version of The Last of Us 2. A TLOU 2 Director’s Cut is also in development, according to Henderson.
