The Last of Us PC release delayed by three weeks

The PC release will now arrive two weeks after the end of the first season of HBO's The Last of Us live-action series.

PC gamers will be disappointed to learn that Naughty Dog's remake of the 2013 game The Last of Us will be delayed by three weeks.

The PC version of the action-adventure game, titled The Last of Us Part I, which was scheduled to launch on March 3, will instead launch on March 28. The news was announced on Twitter by the game's creator, Naughty Dog.

Let’s get right into it: We initially announced The Last of Us Part I PC release would be March 3, but we’ve decided to push its launch date out by just a few weeks — it will now be released on March 28. We at the studio have been completely blown away by the outpouring of love and support for The Last of Us these last few weeks.

Hearing your love for the HBO adaptation, seeing your beautiful Photo Mode shots, and learning about how the world and characters our studio created nearly a decade ago continue to reach new and old fans alike floors us every day. We know a lot of you have been revisiting the story that started it all with TLOU Part I on the PlayStation 5 console, and we realize many of you have been excited to jump in — some for the first time — when Part I hits PC.

And so, we want to make sure that The Last of Us Part I PC debut is in the best shape possible. These additional few weeks will allow us to ensure this version of The Last of Us lives up to your, and our, standards. We are so excited to bring The Last of Us Part I to a new platform, reaching new and returning players with Joel and Ellie’s unforgettable story of survival, and we hope that you’ll continue to look forward to its PC release on March 28. The Naughty Dog team appreciates your support and enthusiasm, and we look forward to sharing more about Part I PC version soon.

The Last of Us Part I received nominations at the Game Awards and Golden Joystick Awards.

The Last of Us Part I was announced in June of last year and launched for the PlayStation 5 on September 2. The remake features revised gameplay, including enhanced combat and exploration, and expanded accessibility options. The PC delay means that the game will be released two weeks after the conclusion of Season 1 of the HBO live-action series.

Speaking of The Last of Us, HBO has had great success with the first season of the live-action series. Despite the fact that Episode 3 received mixed reviews due to its deviation from the game, viewership has steadily climbed, with Episode 3 drawing 12% more viewers than Episode 1.
