Naughty Dog Reps Tell Jimmy Fallon That The Last Of Us Will Be A 2013 Release

Did you watch Late Night With Jimmy Fallon last night? If so, then you’re in the know. But, if not, you missed a live demo of The Last Of Us, the apocalyptic shooter from Uncharted developer Naughty Dog. The game’s creative director (Neil Druckmann) and its game director (Bruce Straley) took to the talk show’s popular stage to give its colourful host an up-close-and-personal look at their E3 demo. As can be expected, Fallon ended up adding his own commentary to the intense and gritty action portrayed on-screen.

During the trio’s discussion about what is one of the industry’s most talked-about projects, the all-important release date topic came up. Instead of stating what we’d heard before, which is that “The Last Of Us will launch in late 2012 or early 2013,” the two Naughty Dog representatives only mentioned 2013. What that means is that early 2013 has become incredibly crowded, while holiday 2012 has lost another potential masterpiece.
