The Last of Us Part 1, suffers a slight delay on PC, will arrive on March 28
Naughty Dog announced through of their social networks that the remastering of The Last of Us, in its version for PC, has suffered a delay. Although this game was going to arrive on Steam and the Epic Games Store the next March 3rdfinally it will on March 28. In other words, the game will now arrive two weeks after the end of the first season of the series based on the game on HBO.
According to the studio, The Last of Us Part 1 will face an extended stage of polishing. In other words, the game was not as optimized as they believed. With the series in mind, the developers indicated that they wanted the game to live up to it. Of course, you have to remember that This game already arrived last year on PlayStation 5 (September 22). In this way it is strange that they still require more additional time to polish the PC version. Perhaps that explains why today, we don’t know the requirements yet of this game for PC
The new date of The Last of Us Part 1 is March 28
In this way, the game almost 3 weeks late. It is clear that we are behind a great study, and a title that now seeks to make money for PC users. Given the game market, a delay is always appreciated, rather than launching a game with problems. Of course, let’s hope that the PC version offers improvements compared to the PlayStation 5 version at the level of visual quality.
It will be time to wait for the company announce game requirements to get an idea of what we can expect at the level of optimization. In essence, judging the visual quality of the trailers against the demand of the hardware.
