A recent leak has just been confirmed by HBO. “The Last of Us” is set to debut at the very start of next year, meaning fans can prepare for a story that features Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey in the lead roles.
Naughty Dog universe fans may be preparing for a blockbuster attraction. We will see the first episode of “The Last of Us” on January 16, 2023 – with the story coming to HBO and HBO Max, and audiences will be able to see the action in 4K quality.
HBO has also confirmed that the “first season” of the series is divided into 9 episodes – basically a clear acknowledgement of plans to tell more stories related to this IP.
In the following weeks, we can expect PlayStation, Naughty Dog and, of course, HBO to launch a particular promotion of the story – The Game Awards would seem to be the perfect place to demonstrate an extended trailer.
