Hey, were you looking forward to Naughty Dog's May 7 release of The Last of Us? So were we. Now it looks like we're going to be waiting a bit longer for the day the title hits shelves.

June 14, 2013 is the new street date according to GameSpot. Naughty Dog confirmed the delay with this small postscript explaining the decision.

"...We pride ourselves on setting a very high quality bar for every aspect of our games -- gameplay, story, art, design, technology and more. We want to make sure The Last of Us raises that bar even further -- for ourselves, and most importantly, our fans."

"As we entered the final phase of development for The Last of Us, we came to realize just how massive Joel and Ellie’s journey is. But instead of cutting corners or compromising our vision, we came to the tough decision that the game deserved a few extra weeks to ensure every detail of The Last of Us was up to Naughty Dog’s internal high standards."

Sucks. Let us know if this is going to impact your decision to pick up the game.
