This past week, we learned that one of the most anticipated titles of 2013 had been delayed.
But although we're mildly disappointed that we have to wait five extra weeks for Naughty Dog's The Last Of Us , we understand that the developers want to produce the best possible adventure.
Even more encouraging is the fact that it's supposedly longer than any game Naughty Dog has produced in the past, which of course includes the acclaimed Uncharted franchise. Creative director Neil Druckmann appeared to confirm this fact :
"In many ways [The Last of Us] Naughty Dog is the most ambitious project is. It is a brand new universe with new characters, groundbreaking technology, a new genre, and by far the longest campaign that Naughty Dog has ever made."
Well, that's certainly good to hear. Personally, I never had any problem with the 10-12-hour Uncharted adventures; they could be completed in less time, of course, but I always wanted to savor those masterpieces. So if I can savor an even longer campaign by being patient – The Last Of Us is now set for June 14 – then I gots no problem with the delay.
