Looks like July 4th is full of good news at Naughty Dog, as the studio is giving the finishing touches to two of their current projects, The Last of Us: Remastered and the 30th anniversary artbook promised back in April.
Lead Programmer Jason Gregory tweeted about the gold release candidate build if The Last of Us Remastered hitting final format QA, also posting an interesting picture of what seems to be the end of the authoring process.
Great work @Naughty_Dog! Gold release candidate for #TheLastofUsRemastered #PS4 is in final format QA. Now we wait…
It’s important to mention that this doesn’t mean that the game has gone gold. Final format QA is the last stage before that, and it will go gold if it passes the final testing phase.
On the other hand, the official account of the studio promised that the 30th anniversary artbook which will be published in collaboration with Dark Horse Comics is in its final stages as well, and further news will come as soon as it’s ready:
We’re just wrapping it up and determining exact timing yet. News once it’s ready!
Considering the quality of Naughty Dog’s artwork, I honestly can’t wait for the artbook. You can expect to hear about its release as soon as Naughty Dog or Dark Horse send in the news.
