During an interview with the Turkish CNN, Sercan Sulun, Software Marketing Manager of Sony’s Eurasian division, had a bit of a lip-slip. The game has also been accidentally listed on a Spanish game retail site.
Wondering what exactly Sercan Sulun said? Here you go:
There is no information about a new The Last of Us game but I can share this knowledge: As of this summer, The Last of Us will be on the PS4. Both on PSN and physically
He afterwards added that the game would include the Left Behind DLC, have improved graphics (it’s going to be beautiful), and most importantly, it would be a definitive version.
What was Sony’s reaction to this? When approached by Joystiq, they spoke out with the usual corporate style of denial:
At no time have we announced that The Last of Us is coming to PS4 and therefore, have nothing to say on the subject.
Oh really? Then why Sony, was a The Last of Us PS4 version listed for pre-order on a Spanish game retail site?
XtraLife, before taking it down, had the game listed as The Last of Us “Complete Edition” for €65 ($89.66) with a release date of June 19. The game included the Left Behind DLC and a one-strap backpack. Now, when you navigate to the URL where the game was listed, you get redirected to the sites main page.
Eventually, Sony caved in and announced on their blog yesterday that yes, the Last of US is coming to the PS4, in “Summer 2014″.
