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.
