The Last of Us Part I is getting remade for PlayStation 5 and PC
It's official, The Last of Us Part I is getting a remake, overhauling the original with modernised gameplay, improved controls, expanded accessibility options, improved visuals, and enhanced exploration and combat.
Most The Last of Us fans will already know that The Last of Us' original PS3 version has already been remastered for PlayStation 4, and has also recieved a 4K resolution boost with PlayStation 4 Pro. This will make The Last of Us Part I the third time that Sony has re-released The Last of Us, but this time the game is getting a lot more than a resolution/framerate boost.
The Last of Us Part I is coming to PlayStation 5 on September 2nd 2022, and is "in development for PC". That means that the Last of Us franchise is coming to PC, but it will arrive on PC after that game's PlayStation 5 release.
Sony is going all-in on PC gaming
Sony has already confirmed that Marvel's Spider-Man: Remastered and Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales is coming to PC this year, and that Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection is also coming to PC in the near future. With The Last of Us Part I getting a PC release, it is clear that Sony is investing heavily in the platform, but that PlayStation 5 will remain a priority for Sony moving forward.
With the PC releases of God of War and Horizon: Zero Dawn being huge successes on PC, it is easy to see why Sony is bringing more of its games to the platform. If Sony wants to remain the king of console gaming, they need money to invest in larger AAA blockbuster titles, and post-PlayStation PC launches for their games is an easy way for the company to generate a larger income from their IP.
