It’s been a while since we’ve heard from Sony or Naughty Dog about The Last of Us. Even though 2013 is getting closer and closer with every passing day, we still don’t have a release date to mark on our calendars yet. Could this new teaser trailer finally be the one that tells us?

Nope. Sony’s trailer does announce a date, but rather than for the actual game which everyone seems to want, the date is for yet another trailer which Naughty Dog is calling a “Story Trailer.” How much story do we really need? A man and a young girl struggle to survive in a harsh post-apocalyptic world. This isn’t exactly Shakespeare here. Quit patting yourselves on the back Naughty Dog and just tell us the date already.

It seems like every time we have a nationally televised event like E3 or the VGAs, which will be airing in three days on December 7th, The Last of Us pops up on everyone’s radar, and yet it vanishes almost as quickly. At this point, I think we are all decided as to whether we want it or not. There isn’t much of a need to drag this out any further. I do have a sneaking suspicion this is going to be pushed further into the year due to the spring already being crowded with huge releases. We’ll see…

Sony does plan to show off a new character at the VGAs this year, so expect yet another bum rush of excitement again.

The Last of Us will be release exclusively for the PlayStation 3 sometime in 2013.
