The Last of Us PS5 Remake Could Be In Development With Naughty Dog

The Last of Us Part I was a groundbreaking game when it came to storytelling and cinematography. So, maybe it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise to hear that the game is possibly getting a remake for the PlayStation 5, in order to capitalise from a new audience  But is there still a market for the game eight years after its launch, or would the studio’s second choice have proven the better fit?


The Last of Us Part I was a revolutionary release all those years ago. But in a similar vein to Grand Theft Auto V, the studio believes there is still life in the old (Naughty) Dog yet. As a result, it is apparently in receipt of a facelift as it undergoes a PlayStation 5 remake – beating Nathan Drake’s game in the process. But is there really that much of a call for it?

That’s debatable.

Now, it can’t be denied that the demand for remakes and remasters is high right now. In fact, some of my favourite games from the last couple of years were on on their second launch at least. But the process is usually best reserved for games that have been out of the limelight for a lot longer than The Last of Us Part I, and that could actually benefit from an improvement. Something which is certainly not true here.

I mean, could you actually better it? Its awards record certainly suggests not…

Jason Schreier of Bloomberg made the announcement, in a report that also told the tale of how the remake was taken away from Sony’s San Diego Studio (who valiantly stepped in to keep the second game on schedule for its delayed launch). And according to the feature piece, a remake of the game Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune was actually overlooked in favour of this project, and now Naughty Dog has full responsibility for ‘T1X’ – which is The Last of Us Part 1 remake’s codename.
