The Last of Us Remake Targeting Holiday Release Window Per Insider
The remake could be arriving by the end of this year!
The heavily rumoured remake of Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us could soon be announced as a credible industry insider believes a release window of Holiday 2022 is likely.
Although the original Last of Us isn’t even 10 years old yet, Naughty Dog is reportedly nearing the end of development on a remake. Not to be confused with the previously remastered version, which launched in 2014 for the PlayStation 4.
Fans are also patiently waiting for news of The Last of Us: Part II Multiplayer after a leaker revealed that it was initially designed as a Battle Royale mode. The mode was then scrapped before being completely rebooted, according to an insider. But the only official confirmation we’ve had from Naughty Dog comes in the form of a blog post, in which they state that they are “working on it”.
It looks as though it could be all hands on deck at Naughty Dog, with the team rumoured to not only be hard at work on a Multiplayer mode for The Last of Us: Part II, but a complete remake of the original game too.

The Last of Us Remake Could Release This Holiday Season
The news comes from industry insider and journalist, Jeff Grubb, who recently appeared on the Kinda Funny Games podcast. During the hour-long discussion, the topic of The Last of Us Remake was brought up, to which Grubb reiterated that it’s likely set to release during the Holiday period. Grubb said, “this holiday is what I keep hearing, I’m pretty confident about that too”.
With the likes of Hogwarts Legacy, God of War: Ragnarok, Stray, and more still set to launch by the end of this year, it could be an expensive year for PlayStation fans.
Plus, that’s not all fans have to look forward to when it comes to The Last of Us. HBO is currently hard at work on the production of a TV adaptation starring Pedro Pascal, Bella Ramsey, and Nick Offerman. As well as a possible Multiplayer mode for The Last of Us: Part II.
Of course, we recommend taking this with a grain of salt, as Naughty Dog are still yet to confirm that a remake even exists.
