The Last of Us is coming to PlayStation 4 this northern hemisphere summer (New Zealand winter), according to a PlayStation marketing executive.

Eurasian software market manager Sercan Sulun told Turkish site Multiplayer (translated by IGN) that a new-gen version of the game was on the way.

"There is no information about a new The Last of Us game but I can share this knowledge; as of this summer, The Last of Us will be on the PS4. Both on PSN and physically," Sulun said.

"The PS4 version will also include the DLC so you will be able to play Left Behind as well."

When approached for a statement, Sony told, "At no time have we announced that The Last of Us is coming to PS4 and therefore, have nothing to say on the subject."
