A developer involved with The Last Of Us Part 1 has suggested that the PC port of the remake will be out sooner than expected. After a fan congratulated the studio on the upcoming release of the remake, senior environment texture artist Jonathan Benaino responded to the praise – noting that the PC version “should come out a bit later, but very soon after the PS5 release.”
In June, Naughty Dog revealed the remake during a spot at the Summer Game Fest 2022. With The Last Of Us Part 1 scheduled for release on September 2, there’s a chance we could expect the PC port to launch sometime later in the year. Any news until then should be taken with a pinch of salt – at least until Naughty Dog makes an official announcement.
The official trailer for The Last Of Us Part 1 does indicate that the PC port is in active development. Historically, PC ports for Playstation titles often launch far later beyond their console counterpart – from God Of War – released on PC more than three years later, and Days Gone, up to two years after.
Glad to hear you're hyped man! PC version should come out a bit later, but very soon after the PS5 release!

It’ll be the first time a series from Naughty Dog has transitioned onto another platform other than Playstation. 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.
As previously reported by GameLuster, Naughty Dog shared details on the gameplay and technical upgrades for The Last Of Us Part 1. The remake will incorporate motion matching technology and become the first PlayStation-made game with audio description options in cutscenes.
