Insider Says Director’s Cut And Original Remake Of The Last Of Us Part 2 Could Come This Year

We’ll get the PlayStation stuff out of the way first and it looks like The Last of Us Part 2: Director’s Cut and the rumored remake of the original could be released this year. This is according to insider Tom Henderson, who claims that he has heard from various people that The Last of Us Remake is “almost finished.” There’s not much more to it than that, but apparently The Last of Us 2: Director’s Cut and the game’s multiplayer could also launch at the same time.

Former Sony Bend CEO Jeff Ross says Days Gone sold more than 8 million copies in a year and a half

The Days Gone community has gone wild today. Days Gone director Jeff Ross revealed that the game sold more than 8 million copies in just over a year and a half, but claimed they were led to believe the game was a “disappointment.” A release for Days Gone 2 was rejected, with many claiming that Sony’s obsession with critically acclaimed blockbusters was the cause, and calls for a sequel have escalated thanks to today’s news.

Latest Horizon Forbidden West Trailer Reveals New Tribes Riding On Old Enemies

Our latest Sony-related story today is the news that Horizon Forbidden West has a new trailer that focuses on some of the tribes Aloy will encounter on his journey. There are some familiar names like Oseram and Carja that appeared in the first game, although we also take a look at two new tribes: Utaru and Tenakth. We don’t know if there are more tribes to gather, but we just have to wait another month to find out.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order 2 to be released before E3

Outside of Sony, we’ve also gotten some news from trusted whistleblower and GamesBeat reporter Jeff Grubb, who hopes to hear about a Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order sequel in a “meaningful” way before E3 this year. Grubb also claims that Respawn has a pencil release date for the end of this year, though that could slide to 2023 if things don’t go well. There’s likely a sequel to Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, but not many expected it to drop this year.

E3 will be online in 2022 for obvious reasons

Speaking of E3, we also found out today that E3 2022 will be an online-only event this year due to growing concerns about Covid-19. This is the second time E3 has been forced to switch online and it feels like the death sentence for in-person events in the future. In fact, there are even reports (from video game author and business analyst Mike Futter) that the E3 in-person event had already been canceled prior to the surge in Omicron variants in the US.

You have to wait 75 seconds.
