A version far from improbable on PS6

In one way or another, thing is far from improbable. The first The Last Of Us debuted on PS3 in June 2013, and a year later, in July 2014, it was released on PS4 with a Remastered version. On the other hand, one has to take into account the time it takes to develop a AAA game today, as renowned journalist Jason Schreier reminds: “Fun fact: Video game production cycles have taken so long that if a big-budget game studio were to start working on a brand new project, it would probably be for the Playstation 6″.

on his side, Paul Tassi from Forbes also wants The Last of Us Part 3 to be published in 2026 : “The Last of Us came out in June 2013. The Last of Us Part II came out in June 2020, but in the meantime Uncharted 4 and Uncharted Lost Legacy were made. So, of course, a potential 2026 release date for The Last of Us Part 3 lines up pretty well and aligns with the apparent plans for the HBO series.” He is writing a new article on the topic.
