According to insider Tom Henderson, who is known for accurately reporting news before it’s announced, there are a number of new Last of Us games in the works, and there could be at least one in 2022.
Henderson wrote on Twitter that “several people” have confirmed that the rumored remake of The Last of Us for PS5 is “almost done” and may launch in the second half of 2022.
Separately, VGC said it heard the same thing from its own sources about a remake of The Last of Us for PS5 set to launch in the second half of 2022. In April 2021, Bloomberg reported that a remake of The Last of Us was in the works for PS5, so there’s plenty of evidence of its existence.
Additionally, Henderson said a director’s cut of The Last of Us: Part II and the standalone Last of Us multiplayer game is real and coming. However, Henderson said it’s unclear “exactly when/how” they might be released.
Henderson said the idea with all these Last of Us-related projects is to “blow up the hype” for the upcoming Last of Us TV show for HBO starring Pedro Pascal as Joel and Bella Ramsey as Ellie. The show is now in production but has no release date. Nick Offerman recently joined the cast as Bill.
At CES 2022 this week, Naughty Dog’s Neil Druckmann said the studio was “on the brink of death” to show off the multiple games it has in development. GameSpot has reached out to Sony in an effort to get more details about these rumours.
Naughty Dog’s next release is Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection, out January 28 for PS5 and later for PC. This includes updated versions of Uncharted 4 and Lost Legacy, as well as a ticket to see the Tom Holland/Mark Wahlberg Uncharted movie in February.
In other PlayStation news, the director of Days Gone recently revealed that the game sold 9 million copies and was labeled a disappointment by local management.
