The Last of Us: Part II could be coming soon to PlayStation 5
According to a report from leaker and insider PlayStationSize, a PlayStation 5 version of The Last of Us: Part II was recently added to the PlayStation database, suggesting an announcement and, likely, an imminent release.
The source confirmed to Insider Gaming that this is a native version of the game for Sony's current console, so it would take advantage of its technology. This coincides with hints and rumors about a remaster that surfaced weeks ago.
Various insiders claim that the remaster will be announced this year and will arrive in early 2024 on PS5. It is also said that it will arrive on PC, but approximately 6 months after its debut on consoles. As for its optimizations, there is talk of graphical improvements and DualSense support.

As for the fans, there are gamers excited to relive this adventure with improvements; however, there are also disappointed people, believing that a remastering of such a recent game is not worth it.
