Naughty Dog: "no plans" for The Last of Us on PS4

The idea would have been infectious.

The Last of Us developer Naughty Dog has said it isn't planning a PlayStation 4 port of its late-in-the-generation PS3 classic.

Despite releasing this summer to critical praise and commercial success, Naughty Dog isn't considering an enhanced version for Sony's next-gen console.

"We have no plans to do that," Naughty Dog's community strategist Eric Monacelli explained on the US PlayStation blog (thanks, Videogamer).

Naughty Dog told Eurogamer earlier this year that it was already working on higher-than-PS3 textures for the game, suggesting a next-gen release was technically possible.

"We always create our assets at a higher resolution than what you see in-game," explained Naughty Dog co-president Christophe Balestra. "A lot of our pipelines are already ready to move to something superior to the PS3."

The developer just released The Last of Us' first slice of DLC - a map pack for the game's multiplayer mode. A new single-player chapter is currently in development for release in December or January, before a final multiplayer add-on later next year. You might think a Game of the Year edition could then release on PS4 at some point - but apparently not.
