In response to a question asked on the official Playstation Blog regarding a PS4 version of the PS3 classic The Last of Us, Naughty Dog’s community strategist Eric Monacelli said that the developer had no plans of porting the game over to the forthcoming next-generation console.
This certainly comes as a disappointment, given the critical praise and commercial success of the PS3 exclusive. It’s likely that a confirmation is being held back for a more formal announcement at a future public event. Spike TV’s VGAs would make a likely candidate for such an announcement, should it take place within the next few months.
Stay tuned for further updates on The Last of Us’ potential next-gen port.
