Update: The Last of Us Part 1 is now confirmed. Details on Digital Deluxe and Firefly Editions down below.
The leaks before were true: The Last of Us Part 1 just got leaked today and it comes from Sony Interactive Entertainment.
The Last of Us Part 1 Leak Yesterday Confirmed!
Leaker The Snitch revealed yesterday the release date of the possible (at that time) remake of The Last of Us and only some believed it to be true. Now, a day later, it seems someone from SIE might have slipped up and revealed it fully for the public to devour. It is now going to be called The Last of Us Part 1.
According to Twitter user Nibel, the leak appeared suddenly on PlayStation Direct page with a new reveal trailer, which can be viewed here. It shows the all too familiar scenes and locations from the original game, now on its PS5 version.
It seems to be almost similar to the original, but there are differences in visuals especially on how the characters’ faces express themselves during scenes. There is more emotion now and almost lifelike compared to before.
Release Date and Platforms. Yes, Platforms.
According to the leaked video, The Last of Us Part 1 will be launching on September 2, 2022 for PS5. This just proved The Snitch’s leaked info yesterday. It also confirmed that this game will be on PC as well, which the video says the PC version is currently in development. (PC master race, rejoice!)

According to Twitter user Warrio64, the game will include the full game plus the Left Behind DLC.
There was a pre-order page but it seems to have been taken down. The game has the Standard Edition and the special Firefly Edition. The former costs $69.99 while the latter costs $99.99. No word on what contents will be included on the Firefly Edition.
