It has been confirmed that Naughty Dog’s PS3 exclusive The Last of Us has been delayed by a month, as previously suggested by major retailers.

PlayStation confirmed this with CVG.  The game was originally scheduled for worldwide release on 7 May, but will now launch on 14 June.

“As a team we pride ourselves on setting a very high quality bar for every aspect of our games – gameplay, story, art, design, technology and more,” said California based developer Naughty Dog.

“We want to make sure The Last of Us raises that bar even further – for ourselves, and most importantly, for our fans.”
