The Last of Us PS4 has been in development since PS3 version wrapped

The developer behind The Last of Us has said that it has been working on the PlayStation 4 version of the post-apocalyptic adventure since the original version wrapped.

Naughty Dog co-president Evan Wells revealed on PlayStation Access that the studio had anticipated a desire from fans to play the game on Sony’s latest home console.

“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,” he said.

“The graphic fidelity has been turned up to eleven,” Wells added, “we’ve got 1080p, we’re pushing the draw distances further, we’re creating higher resolution character models, better lighting, better shadows.”

The Last of Us Remastered was formally announced yesterday and will be released this summer. The game contains a graphical overhaul of the original critically-acclaimed title, as well as all existing DLC.
