PS4 The Last of Us Remastered Release Date Moved to August 7th by Retailer due to Info from Supplier

by on May 11, 2014 7:47 PM 75

Quite a few retailers, especially in the Europe/Oceania area have The Last of Us: Retailer pegged for release on June 13th, but today New Zealander historucal retailer Mighty Ape sent a mail to its customers that pre-ordered the game, warning them that the estimated release date has been changed to August 7th.

Just letting you know that our suppliers have advised us today that the estimated New Zealand release date for The Last of Us Remastered ~ PS4 has changed from 13/06/2014 to 07/08/2014 today. [in New Zealand the date format is day/month/year]

This date is actually quite interesting. Back when The Last of Us: Remastered was announced, NeoGAF user ShdwDrake correctly predicted the reveal in advance, proving to the moderators to have insider information on it. He also mentioned that the release date would have been August 8th.

That date was pretty much overlooked because most retailers pegged the game to June 13th or June 20th, but it matches almost perfectly with the new date set by Mighty Ape.

It wouldn’t be the first time that this kind of details trickle down to New Zealand or Australia first, considering that they are nine hours ahead of the UK and fifteen in the future compared to the US.

Of course, since no official announcement has been made yet by Sony, this should be considered a rumor. We’ll have to stand by and see if it’ll be confirmed in the future.

    Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!

    Like you said, just chalk it up as rumor for now until Sony gives a release date.

  • Delsin Rowe

    i’m placing my bet in june :)
    ready to go , just gives us the release date. i’m guessing it will happen at E3 2014.

  • MTM2

    Kinda makes sense, June/July will have sales already boosted by E3 hype and increased public interest – summer is always the ‘drought’ period for any games console since devs all wait until the Xmas season to drop their own games.

    Filling that drought with the TLOU makes sense to keep the PS4′s sales momentum up during that dry period.

    • Yisa Yussuf

      thats good for sony but…. if one more game gets delayed i may trade in my PS4… cant cope

      • MTM2

        And then what?

        Watch all the good games start coming out that you’ll want to play meaning you’ll have to buy a PS4 again losing you money

  • Jordan

    This ticks me off. I was all excited to play this during the summer. Now…fuck… i guess i have some backlog Ps3 games that need Platinums. :/

  • Raven Nafariea

    Damnit! Too many games coming out around then. Please be a mistake and move this back to June!

  • Anonymous

    sucks. just don’t release it if they’re gonna delay it so far.
    the game should have came out in 2011 with it’s dated apocalypse and twilight references.
    by the time it’s out we’ll have real PS4 games to play.

  • Johnnie

    Bullshit

  • LittleBigSpikey

    Considering I live in New Zealand and frequently purchase from Mighty Ape, I believe this will most likely be wrong. For instance, I wanted to order the Sly Trilogy on Vita from them a few weeks ago and they said it would be out 31st July yet all the shops said 17th April. After I had purchased it from a retail place on the 17th, the site STILL said the 31st, and a few weeks later changed to “In Stock.” This is not the only time that they’ve been wrong with dates so take this with a grain of salt and wait till Sony and Naughty Dog officially give a date, I highly doubt this’ll be delayed till August.

  • PS3_PS4

    later better…lol

  • superkarma

    Wow, I didn’t even know it was set/estimated to be released in June. Not sure how I didn’t hear about that by now. But yeah, if this delay turns out to be true, that would suck. For me, it doesn’t really bother me, since I just now found out about the June date. I just always figured it was going to be a Fall/Winter release for some reason.

  • CervantesPR

    should be june man, i hope this isnt true

  • You are flat out wrong

    Placeholder release date speculation is so fun.

    Retailers should just put “This game will be out around this time” and be done with it.

  • Gamist
    • Raven Nafariea

      Don’t jinks it! (Sits in the corner holding my knees to my chest, bobbing my head up and down and creepily chanting)… It’s still coming in June, It’s still coming in June, It’s still coming in June, It’s still coming in June…

      • Gamist

        Hahaha, you’re funny, Raven! I really hope they’re wrong and it gets released during E3 week like they did for the PS3 version!

        • Raven Nafariea

          Um, yes… I was just joking…. …. ….. It’s still coming in June. =P

          I agree, I am hoping they just wanted to announce it at E3 also and wanted to make a huge thing out of it and that it is still coming. Fingers crossed though!

          Of course it is going to be so cruel when they show all the glorious HD game play and then say…. Not coming till AUGUST!!! I really will be like Darth Vader at the end of Revenge of the Sith then. =P

          • Gamist

            Sure, better delayed than rushed, but it would be perfect for them to release in June. I was thinking, “3 months shouldn’t be so bad.” Then I realized, as fan, that’s an eternity!

          • Raven Nafariea

            IT is! I miss playing it. I will make it through somehow though. Watch_Dogs will help for sure!

          • Gamist

            Yes, it’s been a while for me as well. I saw a plant today and it looked like a clicker (cactus?), lol. I should have taken a picture of it. Oh well…

          • Raven Nafariea

            Ha, awesome! Don’t get any spores on you!!! (Pulls out gasmask) =P

          • Gamist

            I co-splayed as Joel at last years Halloween so, yes, I am protected. XD

          • Raven Nafariea

            Oh wow, awesome! Did everyone notice who you were at first? I think I would make a good Ellie. I am short and thin and kind of have her style.

          • Gamist

            Well, they did recognize me because there were 4 other Joels running around, lol. Short, tall, over weight, you name it, All types of Joels, lol. You know, i have Ellie’s shirt from last years E3, but it’s a large though.;)

          • Raven Nafariea

            4 Other Joel’s, that is so cool! Oh man, I need to get a shirt like Ellie’s. The backpack and the switch blade also! =P I never get to dress up for Halloween though, I always stay home and watch the Halloween movies back to back than the Friday the 13th’s. lol

          • Gamist

            i think if you attend one of those gaming cons or any nerdy cons, you’ll run into Ellies, Joels, and maybe some clcikers, lol. It doesn’t have to be Halloween!

          • http://www.twitch.tv/MC_A_DOT A DOT ASANTE

            Yer I hope this isn’t true but If it is it’s all good. I’m sure watch dogs will keep me stuck to my PS4 for a while :-d

          • Raven Nafariea

            Watch_Dogs!!!! =D

            2 weeks! WTH?… Tick, Tock… Tick, Tock…

          • http://www.twitch.tv/MC_A_DOT A DOT ASANTE

            Seriously the wait is killing me. I’m going to the midnight launch and booking the day off work so I’ll be on alllllllllllllllll day!

          • Raven Nafariea

            Nice! I know I won’t be sleeping for a couple of days straight that is for sure. Watch_Dogs looks amazing! Going to play through the single player first then try the online. I am usually not to excited about online games but I am for this one, looks so fun!

          • Marquis Regalia

            Guess you’re not a fan of FF Vs 13 :D I wouldn’t mind a 3 mos. delay but it coming out earlier is always better as long as there’s not corners cut :)

          • Gamist

            Yes, totally not a fan of companies cutting corners on their games even though sometimes it’s not in their control.

      • IncognitosX

        Looking forward to my first play through but I’ve waited this long so what’s another few months (no jinks).

  • Jeff Maxwell

    even a remastered version is delayed…. its not like they have to build the game from scratch im sorry but aren’t you guys sick of it? sure a bit of extra time to get things right but you’ve loked at 6 month delays its not small. If KZ and knack and that was delayed you wouldn’t of had any games at all at launch, driveclub delayed by a year and has microtransactions in it now… amazing

    • Jecht_Sin

      Wait a minute!! GANNICUS!! Is it you?! the level of stupidity on this post is equal only to his ones. For example: how can anything be delayed if it NEVER had an official release date?!

      • Raven Nafariea

        Sounds like Gannicus, smells like his same BS as Gannicus,… Probably Gannicus. lol

        • Jecht_Sin

          He does, doesn’t he? ^_^

        • Jeff Maxwell

          whose Gannicus? It is true though they have bin delayed a long time, any game that gets delayed that long you’ve got ask why is it that long?

          • Jecht_Sin

            Gannicus is a supreme PC idiotic defender who has been violently banned for drinking and spilling crap on a most sensitive article about a boy with a serious disease playing his PS4 games in the hospital with the PS Vita remote play.

            The problem is that his posting style and content was exactly like yours. Not to mention that he has been banned more or less when you started posting.

          • Jeff Maxwell

            oh right fair enough

        • 3rdworldgamer

          did he get banned? i haven’t seen him here

          • Raven Nafariea

            Yep, he did a while back ago. I think shortly after Easter he did. =)

      • Jeff Maxwell

        yeah I spose if it never had a release date but still its a lot longer than when it was supposed to be out.

        • Jecht_Sin

          That game was not even supposed to be revealed so early. It’s only because a Sony exec spoke too much that we knew about it.

          • Jeff Maxwell

            Driveclub?

          • Jecht_Sin

            Driveclub what? Do you want to bring also Watch Dogs and The Crew in the equation? We are talking about The Last of Us Remastered. It hasn’t been delayed because its release date has never been announced. End of story.

          • Jeff Maxwell

            alright fair enough

          • YroBalboa

            A non existend official release date cant be delayed, why dont you get it xboner? Did all the 720p resolution fried your brain?

          • Jeff Maxwell

            why do you assume I have an xbox?

          • YroBalboa

            Because you seem unhappy with everything Playstation does. You are bored and disappointed by your xbone, and now u want to troll us PS fans, we are not guilty that we are happy with ou favorite console ;)
            But M$ is, they did too much faults this gen :)

          • YroBalboa

            Will be a great game, yes!

      • superkarma

        Actually, now that you mention it…I’m willing to bet anything that is Gannicus. It makes perfect sense. Jeff Maxwell is constantly bragging about PC being better than PS4, PC this, PC that.

        • Sucka Free

          if it is, we’ll just have to wait till Friday for him to get sloppy drunk and start posting gibberish…

          • Raven Nafariea

            I thought he did that everyday. =P

          • Sucka Free

            Sometimes, but almost always on the weekend, started usually early Friday evening and got progressively less coherent on through Sat. Usually wouldn’t see him on Sunday, lol

    • YroBalboa

      I gues, you own both consoles, but you prefer every thing about the xbone? And your Ps4 ( you dont own one ) is collecting dust since the realese?

    • Craig Sloan

      Delayed? Wasn’t aware it was given an official release date. Oh you mean the leaked rumor of a release date? Yeah there’s a difference use your two brain cells.

    • IncognitosX

      Titanfall was delayed for the 360 and the last I checked the earth was still spinning and life continued . . . I think you’ll be ok. I can tell you’re extremely anxious but take deep breaths, everything will be ok.

  • Matt Doria

    It doesn’t really matter for me since I wouldn’t be able to get it around August anyway (have to save my moneys for parents’ birthdays, girlfriend’s birthday and our anniversary >_<) but this sucks for everyone who was keen to get it straight away if it's true :( Still holding out hope it makes it's June date for you all!

  • Gamingboy 321

    I would actually like a mid-July Release, I can’t wait to play it again but I have watch dogs coming up, And that game is going to be massive and very time consuming and plus by the time I finish the game I would also have enough money to get this one. But I know most of us and me can’t wait to play it again !

  • Yisa Yussuf

    Drive Club, Watch Dogs, The Witcher 3, Elder Scrolls Online, Planet Side 2, now this…. 2014 is definitely the year of the delay. #GreatnessAwaits…..and waits… and waits…. then waits some more because it got delayed

    • YroBalboa

      PS4 GreatnessAwaits
      Xbone Greatness never came

    • superkarma

      Considering TLOU: Remastered never had an official release date, it wasn’t delayed.

      Many games (many multi-plats) have been delayed. My guess is because they were all riding the E3 hype last year, but realized they couldn’t deliver in time. As much as it annoys me about a game getting delayed, I’d much rather have a polished game than one that requires many patches just because they rushed it. BF4 is a perfect example of a rushed game and look what happened with that.

      • Yisa Yussuf

        True, if i had a ton of other games to play I wouldn’t mind…. but i don’t… it hurts! But i hear you with BF4… I hate that EA has all the biggest titles just because they can afford them… Star Wars Battle Front would be on my number one list but the fact that its another Dice/Ea colab doesn’t excite me at all

        • superkarma

          Yeah, the lack of heavy hitting games (for both consoles) is pretty rough right now. Fortunately, we’ll be getting some nice games pretty soon. Wolfenstein in a week, Watch Dogs in 2 weeks, Destiny beta in about a month, Oddworld in probably a month, etc. That’ll be enough to keep me busy until the fall when the other big games come out :)

    • YroBalboa

      And btw, Witcher, Elder Scrolls and Watch Dogs arent Sony games, they got delayed for the xbone too, and yeah i know its hurting you, but all of those delayed games, will be better on Playstation :)

      • Yisa Yussuf

        i know what multiplats are… that doesn’t matter.. the fact i have to wait longer matters to me.. i need games!

  • Real Rick Grimes

    Damn that sucks, was really hoping for June.. Still holding out!

  • Eggyhead85

    I’ll be in the states that month. I can pick up a copy before I buy my PS4 after returning to Japan!

  • Kevin

    FFS, I just bought a PS4 getting ready to play it all summer :@

  • Ahmed

    I can’t wait all that that time

  • Christopher Columbus

    This is LAME. I was so excited that today was the first day of June because I was thinking “sweet in a few weeks Last Of Us will be out… that will give me reason to use my PS4!”

    I knew this was going to happen because the PSN store still has the placeholder date of “12/31/14″ which made me think it’ll probably be later in the summer. It seemed to quick after their announcement for it to be released.

    The extra wait BETTER be because they are going to improve the game even more.

  • sd

    Hopefully it won’t be too long as this is my reason to buy a ps4.
