Naughty Dog definitely got fans excited when they revealed their new work-in-progress to the world last year. An apocalyptic setting, where two survivors set out against a population that has been decimated by a modern plague, The Last of Us is definitely a game to look forward to on the PS3.
Though Naughty Dog hasn’t been forthcoming with the game’s release date. Recently, EBGames has put a date on The Last of Us, and has it scheduled for November 9th, 2012. Do they know something that other retailers don’t? Other online shops like Amazon.com still have the game listed for Dec 31,2012, which in most cases means a date hasn’t been announced.
If true, that could be yet another PlayStation 3 exclusive to start budgeting your time for this fall. It does seems like a perfectly logical spot to release the game. It would stack The Last of Us against Microsoft’s Halo 4 and Activision’s Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 in one of the biggest release weeks ever. Last year at that time, Naughty Dog was releasing Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception against stiff competition.
