Sorry if you have to read that headline two or three times for it to makes sense. I had to several times as well before remembering that Turkey is indeed a country that has its own PlayStation branch. In fact, that branch of PlayStation has a Vice President named Sercan Sulun who might have just blown the secret on one of Sony’s most requested projects, an enhanced port of The Last of Us on PlayStation 4.
In an interview with CNN Turk, Sulun very clearly states in his native language that the re-release will be coming out this summer in response to a question about the sequel.
“No, a sequel is not coming right now as far as I know. But I can say that first game will be released this summer for PlayStation 4 as a physical and digital copy, with enhanced graphics.”
Again, this is just a big rumor and nothing official has been confirmed yet. Sulun is a very high ranking guy at a foreign branch of PlayStation though, so we’ll have to wait and see how his comments pan out. We’ll be keeping an eye out for any announcements from Sony in the coming weeks.
Would you be willing to buy an upgrade to Naughty Dog’s universally praised survival horror game? I haven’t had the chance to let the nostalgia set in like with Final Fantasy X, which just saw an upgraded port over a decade after the original release. I need time for these things to sink in, but that never seems to happen for Western developed games.
I wonder why that is.
When asked, Sony issued an official statement through Joystiq, reading ”‘At no time have we announced that The Last of Us is coming to PS4 and therefore, have nothing to say on the subject.”
