The Last of Us for PS4 is Real According to Insider; PS4 Version Listed on GameStop Germany’s System

A couple days ago during a show on CNN Turk, Market Manager at Sony Eurasia Sercan Sülün said that The Last of Us will be coming to PS4. Since then Sony has denied but not really denied, saying that they have “nothing to say” about it.

In the meanwhile industry insider Pete “Famousmortimer” Dodd, that is known to have quite solid sources at Sony and has a good track record with the information he receives from them, mentioned on NeoGAF that the PS4 release of the game is indeed real.

They aren’t going to say anything about it… but it’s true.

A further element has been added by one of our readers, Twitter user IH8YH, that snapped a picture of GameStop Germany’s internal system at his local store.


The release date is an obvious placeholder, as November 16th, 2014 and May 17th, 2015 are used for other games that don’t have a firm release window announced yet. The canceled Star Wars 1313 is also visible, but GameStop isn’t new to leaving canned titles into its system, so I wouldn’t read much into it.

Interestingly enough we can also see “Tomb Raider Arbeitstitel” (Tomb Raider Working Title) listed for PS4, and we do know that a next gen Tomb Raider sequel is currently in the works.

Of course we should still take this with a nice pinch of salt until Sony comes through with an official announcement, but a PS4 version of The Last of Us seems more and more likely. It’d also be unsurprising, as I doubt there’s be many moves that would make more sense than that one for Sony, considered the widespread acclaim from fans and critics the game received.

    The fact that they are not denying or confirming anything speaks volumes IMO.

    In all fairness, this also lists Star Wars 1313…

      “The canceled Star Wars 1313 is also visible, but GameStop isn’t new to leaving canned titles into its system, so I wouldn’t read much into it”

    I wonder if they will release the rumored Uncharted collection this fall 2. That would really make my day.

    • ShaneO

      It`s gonna have to be on more then one Bluray if they do. The filesizes for these games was huge

  • Jecht_Sin

    It would make sense anyway. The team could get some good knowledge and expertise about the PS4 HW without the pressure of delivering a super stellar next gen game (simply because it isn’t. It’s a previous gen game after all!). It will give a chance to the people who switched from the X360 to play this Masterpiece . And there are still people like me who have got stuck with the PS+ backlog of excellent games that didn’t buy it yet! ^_^

      Sony may have outsourced this HD release to another team.

      • PhantomVash808

        I hope it is BluePoint because they have done excellent ports for Sony in the past.

  • DrPhilter

    For the love of all that is holy god please let 1313 be real and come out. Why couldn’t EA just have someone finish it?!

    • Giuseppe Nelva

      Nah, Gamestop never really removes the SKUs for canceled games. I really wouldn’t read anything in that.

      • DrPhilter

        Oh, you don’t understand, anytime something is speculated about a game, 1313 is my answer. “What level do you want in Kingom Hearts 1313” My answer is “Level 1313 of Coruscant”. “What will the next CoD level be?” “Level 1313 of Courscant”. I was so hyped for that game and heartbroken when it was “cancelled”.

  • PCS4-Box U

    Mirror Edge 2, The Order, NHL 15, Battlefront, Tomb Raider all show release dates this year! Man i really do wish they would bring the SW 1313 back to life too, that game looked incredible.

    • Giuseppe Nelva

      Those are all placeholder dates, so I would not read much into it. The Order is confirmed this year, mind you.

      • PCS4-Box U

        Yea, still exciting to see them on the list… I haven’t heard anything about NHL 15 coming to PS4 and since my Blues are dominating the NHL, I’m excited that they’ll be the most badass team in the game for a change, i’m hoping they put TJ Oshie on the cover- he deserves it!
        also… you have earned youself…

  • I will gladly buy The Last of Us once again, if this is confirmed (in the next days or weeks). Just… seeing Star Wars 1313 in this list breaks my heart. Damn you, Disney.

  • Temjin001

    I suppose I should try and finish my PS3 version soon. The game file says I’m 31% complete. It’s been a pretty incredible ride so far. I’m just finishing up on Mass Effect 3 first. And once again, DOA5U has me hooked.

  • John Nemesh

    In related news, Sony Turkey is now hiring for executive management positions! 😉

  • Suzaku Kururugi

    would be cool if there was cross-generation multiplayer

    • oddvintagetaco

      Yeah it would. Also with Minecraft.

  • Fake_of_Silva

    I can already hear the “ka-tching!”

  • You know what I’ve been thinking ever since this rumor started? TLoU would make a hell of an addition to the PS4’s Instant Game Collection….

  • Edward CORE

    Do you know what game would I also like to see on the PS4? Okami HD, the game was released on the PSN for PS3, and was already amazing, and it is said to have internal textures up to 4k resolution. It already ran at 1080p on the PS3, so I can only imagine a butter smooth 60fps on the PS4.

    • shinitaru

      I could have another go at Okami as long as I don’t have to buy it again. This would make 3 times

  • shinitaru

    My heart started racing a bit when I saw Star Wars 1313, now I’m depressed again *sob*

  • Trioptical

    So… how many times does an insider have to be wrong before we stop considering him or her an insider? While it’s seeming very likely The Last of Us is coming to PS4, Dodd’s credibility doesn’t seem as strong as the article suggests, in light of recent revelations.

    • Jecht_Sin

      Well, it has been first stated by a Sony’s VP. And the image from Gamestop is another piece of evidence.

      I consider the fact that Pacther after the many mistakes is still allowed to talk and earn money from his crap much more embarrassing.
