The Last of Us and The Last of Us Part II Director's Cut teased by insider

By Kes Eylers-Stephenson,
The Last of Us and its controversial sequel, The Last of Us Part II, have been rumoured for a PS5 remaster for some time, but insider Tom Henderson has suggested that both will receive a Director's Cut and could be set for late 2022.


Tom Henderson is a reliable industry insider, currently writing for VGC. Yesterday, he reported that he had "Heard from multiple people now that the TLOU remake is nearly finished and could release during the latter half of 2022." In a follow-up tweet, Henderson added that "With TLOU2 MP and TLOU 2 Director's Cut — I've heard they are coming too — but I don't know exactly when/how." Henderson is talking about the rumoured Factions mode that Naughty Dog has confirmed that it is working on alongside other "unannounced game projects."

The PlayStation Studio had been rumoured to have taken a The Last of Us or Uncharted Remake project away from an unnamed development team (thanks, Bloomberg) that was working out of PlayStation's San Diego Studio.

It seems likely that this would be true given the persistence of the rumours, but also the fact that Naughty Dog likes to try its hand at remake and remaster projects to get used to new hardware as was the case with The Last of Us Remastered for PS4. Let us know what you think in the comments below, and we will see you there!

Hey, I'm Kes! I'm a Staff Writer, and I've been here since 2021. What do I like? The Outer Wilds is top notch. The Witcher 3 blew my mind over the course of five years completing it. I want Burnout back — I really miss crunching mechanical wonders into walls to the sound of Guns N' Roses. Cool, now we are acquainted, I'll see you around.
