PlayStation Turkey boss Sercan Sulun mentions on camera that The Last of Us with enhanced graphics and its single-player DLC, Left Behind, is coming to the PS4 this summer.
Update: A Sony Computer Entertainment Europe rep has issued the following statement to Joystiq:
At no time have we announced that The Last of Us is coming to PS4 and therefore, have nothing to say on the subject.
What’s interesting here is the rep didn’t exactly deny that The Last of Us is coming to the PS4; just that they haven’t announced anything yet. Take from that what you will, but my guess? It’s just a matter of time before Sony confirms this officially — and I wouldn’t be surprised if Sulun got a rather heated phone call from someone high up in the PlayStation food chain once the story gained some traction.
Rumors of Naughty Dog’s opus, The Last of Us, hitting the PlayStation 4 just won’t end, and this time, an executive “confirmed” the game’s existence, and on camera, too, no less. Speaking during an interview with Turkish website Multiplayer, PlayStation Turkey VP Sercan Sulun was asked whether we’ll see a The Last of Us sequel soon, to which the exec replied with, “There is no information about a new The Last of Us game but I can share this knowledge; as of this summer, The Last of Us will be on the PS4. Both on PSN and physically…. The PS4 version will also include the DLC so you will be able to play ‘Left Behind‘ as well.”
The actual revelation comes around the 36-minute mark of the video, but it is in Turkish.
Keep in mind that this isn’t a 100% confirmation, but seeing as Sulun is a high-ranking member of the PlayStation family that’s been with the company since 2012, he might know a thing or two that’s not made public yet. Has Sulun jumped the gun when it comes to one of Sony’s big reveals? We’ve reached out to Sony to ask for a statement and will update the post once a representative has replied.
If you’ve played The Last of Us on the PS3, are you willing to double dip to see the game with “enhanced graphics?” Or should Sony offer some sort of upgrade program for those who have already bought the post-apocalyptic action game?
Regarding a sequel, Naughty Dog has already mentioned that there is a 50/50 chance of The Last of Us 2 happening, and don’t forget, Sony is turning its hit PS3 game into a movie that could further flesh out the property’s universe.
