When are remakes and remasters worth it? Especially if the originals are difficult to access. Only expensive on old platforms and on the used market. And ideally, they also benefit from the freshness cure.
The Last of Us doesn’t seem to have any of those traits. Allegedly. Neil Druckman sees it differently, of course, saying the remake is even closer to the vision they had for the original. In addition, the remake “from the ground up” is newly built.
In any case, the game, which isn’t even 10 years old, is now getting its remake whether you like it or not. The rumor mill has been cooking long enough anyway. Included in The Last of Us: Part I is, of course, Left Behind.
Probably the bigger announcement in this regard is that The Last of Us: Part I will also be released for PC. But probably not at the same time as the PS5 version, which is scheduled for September 2, 2022.
In addition, Neil Druckmann also announced a “standalone multiplayer game” in The Last of Us universe, featuring new characters and locations. But there was nothing more than that a piece of art†
