The Last of Us shares GTA 5 release window, possibly
It’s been a while since we have heard any news on The last of Us, one because Naughty Dog did not have much to share, and two because the likes of Halo 4 and Black Ops 2 have taken a lions share of the attention of late. However, we might have something that could get you a little excited, and that’s a possible release window for The Last of Us, which coincidentally is similar to Grand Theft Auto 5.
Rockstar has confirmed that GTA 5 will be released in the spring of 2013, and we’re now hearing that this could also be the fact for The Last of Us, but we have to warn that currently it’s just Wal-mart that started to take reservations for the game, so not like official proof like that of GTA V.
While Wal-mart do show reservations cards for Spring 2013, it’s worth noting that it’s subject to change. We’re told that this is just speculation as no such release date for The Last of Us has been finalized, but then again it could be the real deal, as the likes of Tesco’s in the UK showed a Spring release for GTA 5, and they were right on the money there – although not certain if an end of March release is correct.
We already know that Naughty Dog’s next title will be released in 2013, and while there were rumors that it would be a next-gen title, we can safely say that this will not be the case.
Let’s say for arguments sake that Sony were to release The Last of Us in the same week as Grand Theft Auto V, what do you think the outcome would be? We’re sure the latter would be the more popular of the two, but not everyone will want GTA 5.
It’s been a while since Naughty Dog released a trailer for The Last of Us, so great to see them release a new one (see below), which is a build-up to a story trailer due for release on December 10th.
