While Sony hasn’t announced a release date of The Last of Us Remastered, several retailers have already posted their own dates across both sides of the Atlantic Ocean.
In the United States both Best Buy and Target now list the game for a June 20th release. On the other hand, and on the other side of the pond, the British retailer Shopto and the Italian branch of GameStop both have the release date pegged on June 27th.
The prominent British retail chain Game, on the other hand, keeps the street date more generic but still matching, indicating simply “June 2014”
Interestingly enough GameStop Spain lists the game one week on the opposite side of the North American release: June 13th.
The discrepancy in the specific launch day could have a couple of logical explanations. Retailers may have been given reason to believe in a June date, and they went with what each viewed as the most logical date, or we might be looking at slightly different release dates for North America and Europe. It wouldn’t be the first time.
Interestingly enough, all the dates were added by each retailer very recently, possibly indicating that they might have been given information around the same time.
Of course, since we haven’t received any official announcement from Sony Computer Entertainment, we should take all the dates mentioned above with a grain of salt and consider them rumors. It’ll be interesting to see which one of them will catch the bulls-eye, if any.
