The Last of Us PS5 Remake Is Apparently in the Works

A Jason Schreier report in Bloomberg reported that a remake of The Last of Us is in development for the PS5. Work on the project began in 2018 with a group led by Visual Arts Service Group Founder Michael Mumbauer. However, the group that originally worked on it doesn’t exist, following Naughty Dog taking over the game.

The report, which also focused on Sony’s desire to focus on and support big “blockbusters,” mentioned that Mumbauer’s group almost made an Uncharted remake. A The Last of Us remake won out due to concerns about the amount of effort and money needed and to go along with The Last of Us Part 2. According to Schreier’s sources, Sony then didn’t provide Mumbauer’s team with the resources needed.

When The Last of Us Part 2’s ended up delayed is when things began to shift. Sony had people from Visual Arts Service Group, which included The Last of Us PS5 remake team members, work on the sequel. After that game shift, Sony essentially gave the remake to Naughty Dog.

This remake would make the third version of The Last of Us. The game debuted on the PS3 in 2013. Then, a year later in 2014, Sony and Naughty Dog released The Last of Us Remastered for the PS4.
