The Last Of Us Remastered Development Began Immediately After PS3 Version Was Finished

Posted 2014/04/10 by Christopher Bowen in Gaming

Are Naughty Dog fortune tellers? It seems that way with the information that has just surfaced about the PlayStation 4 version of The Last Of Us. In a video interview, Co-President of Naughty Dog Evan Wells made this statement about the development of the remastered version.

“We had a lot of people on the forums saying ‘can I play this on PlayStation 4?’ We had actually been anticipating that, and started working on it pretty much as soon as we finished the PlayStation 3 [version],” “We weren’t sure if it was going to go anywhere, but when we saw the fans clamouring for it we doubled-down, and put more effort behind it.” “The graphic fidelity has been turned up to eleven. We’ve got 1080p, we’re pushing the draw distances further, we’re creating higher resolution character models, better lighting, better shadows.”

Wells also went on to say that while the studio expressed how there would be no PS4 version of The Last Of Us to the fans and media, this was surely not true. So we ask the question once again, are Naughty Dog fortune tellers? It almost seems like they foreseen the future of how successful The Last Of Us would become. Every since it’s 2013 summer launch, fans have been asking for a PlayStation 4 version to be created. For a while, Naughty Dog stated that if you wanted to experience The Last Of Us on next generation consoles, that you would have to experience it through Sony‘s upcoming Gaikai powered video game streaming service, PlayStation Now. Naughty Dog has stated that they will keep us updated on more details as we come closer to the release, but you can check out all the details here about the upcoming PS4 remastered version of The Last Of Us here.
