“We’re happy to share that The Last of Us Part II has sold through more than 10 million copies globally, as of this Spring. Knowing the support we have, our studio continues to see exciting, new avenues to introduce curious audiences and galvanize fans. With that opportunity in mind, let’s talk about the immense future of The Last of Us.”

Further into the blog post, Druckmann talks about the Naughty Dog team working on the remake.

“The Last of Us was released almost a decade ago on the PlayStation 3 console, and it’s left an indelible mark on our studio. Joel and Ellie’s story continues to be powerfully evocative with players worldwide, and we’re humbled these characters continue to leave an impression,” says Druckmann. “With leaps in technology and hardware that allow us to push the limits of the visual fidelity and interactivity, we’re thrilled to announce this complete remake of The Last of Us, releasing September 2, 2022, for the PlayStation 5 console and in development for PC.”

The gameplay has been modernized with improved controls and expanded accessibility options for more people to enjoy the game. Also, the effects, exploration, and combat have been retooled and enhanced. Using the raw power of the PlayStation 5 gives Naughty Dog the opportunity to add 3D Audio, haptics, and adaptive triggers.
