Earlier today, Naughty Dog announced that The Last of Us Part I’s PC port has been delayed a few weeks to March 28. Originally set to launch March 3, the reasoning behind the delay was vague, but it just sounds like Naughty Dog needs a few more weeks for polish. The delay also means that the first full season of the television adaptation of The Last of Us on HBO Max will fully air, since the final episode is set for March 12. Cue all the tinfoil hat theories that Naughty Dog is intentionally letting the full season of the show air first, before releasing the PC port. But seriously, it probably just has some bugs.

The Last of Us Part I is a remake of the award-winning PS3 game that had already gotten a remaster for the PS4. It was originally released on September 22, 2022 for the PS5, but PC gamers will finally get to experience the game in late March.

The Last of Us fans,

Let’s get right to it: We initially announced The Last of Us Part I PC release would be March 3, but we’ve decided to push its launch date out by just a few weeks; it will now be released on March 28. We at the studio have been completely blown away by the outpouring of love and support for The Last of Us these last few weeks. Hearing your love for the HBO adaptation, seeing your beautiful Photo Mode shots, and learning about how the world and characters our studio created nearly a decade ago continue to reach new and old fans alike floors us every day. We know a lot of you have been revisiting the story that started it all with The Last of Us Part I on PlayStation 5 console, and we realize many of you have been excited to jump in — some for the first time — when Part I hits PC.

And so we want to make sure that The Last of Us Part I PC debut is in the best shape possible. These additional few weeks will allow us to ensure this version of The Last of Us lives up to your, and our, standards. We are so excited to bring The Last of Us Part I to a new platform, reaching new and returning players with Joel and Ellie’s unforgettable story of survival, and we hope that you’ll continue to look forward to its PC release on March 28. The Naughty Dog team appreciates your support and enthusiasm, and we look forward to sharing more about The Last of Us Part I PC version soon.

Endure and Survive,

Naughty Dog
