Naughty Dog revealed that The Last of Us Part I, a remake of 2013 classic, will come to PC “very soon” after it launches on PS5 first. One developer took to Twitter to share the news, but didn’t offer exactly how soon we’ll receive the game’s PC version which was announced with the game’s reveal.
Naughty Dog Senior Environment Texture Artist, Jonathan Benainous, responded to a fan on Twitter stating, “Glad to hear you’re hyped man! PC version should come out a bit later, but very soon after the PS5 release!” The remake will launch on PS5 first this September with the PC version to follow shortly after.
Some fans believe that it could arrive on PC by November or December this year, which would make sense as the holiday season means big sales for Sony. Another major PlayStation exclusive, God of War Ragnarok, is expected to launch this November too, though that probably won’t release on PC for some time.
Sony continues to push plenty of its major console exclusives to PC. Currently, PC players can enjoy the likes of Horizon Zero Dawn, Days Gone and 2018’s God of War, among others. Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered is scheduled to launch on PC via Steam on 12 August 2022, with Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales to follow soon after.
The Last of Us Part I is touted by PlayStation as a ground-up remake, overhauling the game’s visuals, models and mechanics as well as making some gameplay tweaks to bring it closer to The Last of Us Part II. The remake will launch on PS5 and PC – the first time that Sony confirmed both platforms during one of its new game announcements.
The Last of Us Part I launches on 2 September 2022 for PS5, with a PC version to follow shortly after.
