Industry insider Jeff Grubb has heard that The Last of Us could be remastered for a PC and PS5 release. The official announcement is expected to arrive on September 2. Update: A PlayStation Store listing has confirmed the launch date and the existence of the PS5 version.

UPDATE: A leaked PlayStation Store listing has confirmed that The Last of Us remake will be available for the PS5.

Horizon Zero Dawn paved the way for many Sony exclusives' PC launches, such as Days Gone, God of War and Marvel's Spider-man. Ghost of Tsushima and Returnal are in the pipeline, too, but their exact launch timelines are unknown. However, the next PlayStation exclusive coming to PC could be The Last of Us, according to industry insider Jeff Grubb.

Sources familiar with the matter have told Jeff that a remastered version of The Last of Us will be announced for PC and PS5 on September 2 and that the game is in advanced stages of development. Like the games that came before it, The Last of Us remake will bundle together all the in-game DLC, including the Left Behind story arc that looks into Ellie's past.

The Last of Us remake will likely bring multiple visual improvements, almost certainly more than what the PS4 port of the game offered. It could be designed to fully take advantage of the processing power offered by modern-day PCs/consoles, and include computationally intensive features like real-time raytracing. Initially launched on the PS3 in 2013, The Last of Us is quite dated by modern standards, although it still looks gorgeous even now.

While Jeff has had a decent track record with leaks, a grain of salt is always in order, especially in this instance. The Last of Us 2 is yet to get its multiplayer expansion, now rumoured to be a standalone game. It would be logical to assume that Naughty Dog would push out content for a 2020 game before announcing a remaster for a nearly decade-old title.
