The Last Of Us Part 1 Goes Gold

Ahead of its release, Naughty Dog has confirmed that The Last Of Us Part 1 has gone gold. The studio announced the news via their Twitter channel on Monday afternoon, congratulating the development team and PlayStation for their contributions and efforts leading to the milestone. 

For those unfamiliar with the jargon, “gone gold” typically refers to when first-party companies approve the game for publishing on their consoles. The main development stage of the game has been completed, which leads to the manufacturing stage. However, the studio can still refine and add final, polished touches to the remake before September. Along with the post, the studio added a shortened version of the announcement trailer – which can be seen below.


The Last Of Us was released on the PS3 on June 14th, 2013, with the PS4 Remastered version arriving one year later on July 29th, 2014. Naughty Dog released the sequel, The Last Of Us Part II, on June 19th, 2020. Now we can add September 2nd, 2022 as another Last of Us release date to our diaries. The Last Of Us Part 1 will launch on the PS5 on September 2, with a PC version coming at an unspecified date in the future. 

In other Naughty Dog-related news, GameLuster reported that Uncharted could become a franchise. Sony are reportedly attempting to secure a deal with Tom Holland, who bought the live-action version of Nathan Drake to the big screen. In a memo to colleagues on President’s Day, the CEO of Sony Pictures, Tom Rothman “seemed excited” about the idea of future films in the series.

For all future updates on The Last of Us, including a standalone multiplayer title coming next year, stay tuned right here at GameLuster.
