One of Naughty Dog’s lead animators have taken to Twitter to make a short and sweet announcement: The Last of Us Remastered has gone gold for the PlayStation 4. What does that mean? It means that the game’s development is done and complete and that it’s prepping to release on a retailer’s store shelf near you.
Sony had previously made it known that the game would be arriving for the PlayStation 4 before the summer would be out. It looks like they’re sticking true to their promise, as lead animator Mike Yosh posted the following on Twitter.
For those of you not in the know and have absolutely no idea what that means, it’s quite simple: The Last of Us Remastered for the PlayStation 4 (the words in the hashtags) is gold (represented by the gold bar in the image).
In design terms, this means that development on The Last of Us Remastered is finished and the game’s gold master disc used for production and manufacturing prints has been burned. This means that the game is prepping to ship to retailers once the SKUs (stock keeping units) have been fully manufactured and shipped off to retailers.
So when can you expect The Last of Us Remastered to arrive on your PlayStation 4? Maybe in another few weeks. We’ll see.
For now, you can expect one of the best games released during the seventh generation of gaming to arrive on the fast-selling PS4 before the fall envelops you in its chills, thrills and preparatory seasonal advancements toward that dreaded thing we call winter.
