Rumor: The Last of Us Remastered Launches June 20

Sony has made it clear that The Last of Us Remastered would launch sometime during summer 2014.  However, they have not specified when in the summer we’d be playing The Last of Us on PS4.  Now, a release date might have been leaked.

GameSpot has noted that Best Buy, Target and Gamefly all stated that The Last of Us Remastered launches June 20.  Amazon has the December 31, 2014 placeholder date.  It’s interesting to note that Target and Gamefly have changed the June 20 date to the December 31 placeholder, but Best Buy continues to display June 20.

There is a strong possibility that June 20 is the release date of The Last of Us Remastered.  June 20 is a Friday, the day Sony titles typically launch, and it’s the week after E3 2014.  Naughty Dog launched The Last of Us on PS3 Friday June 14, the day right after E3 2013 ended.  There’s some correlation between the dates to suggest this rumor is correct.

Take this with a grain of salt.  If the release date is indeed June 20 then we should get an official statement from Sony soon.
