Robert Morrison, who currently acts as the cinematic animator at PlayStation Studios Visual Arts, recently posted a number of Tweets (via Okami13_) saying that the studio has 8220;some bangers coming out this year8221; and that he is not working on God of War Ragnarok. It8217;s also a project that has been in the works for three to five years. The studio is believed to be working on a PlayStation 5 remake of The Last of Us.
Multiple reports earlier this year (via VGC) began to circulate online that Sony is currently working on a remake for The Last of Us, though nothing official has been announced at this time. These comments seem to further hint at the game8217;s existence and a release date for 2022.

The Last of Us was originally released in June 2013 before going on to become one of the most acclaimed video games of all time and has amassed over 17 million in sales. The Last of Us Part II then subsequently launched in 2020 and again found similar success with over four million copies sold in its opening weekend alone.
The video game is currently being adapted to a TV series by HBO Max starring Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey as lead characters Joel and Ellie, respectively. The series is being helmed by Chernobyl creator Craig Mazin with The Last of Us game director Neil Druckmann heavily involved.
Most recently, a number of The Last of Us TV series images leaked from the filming, giving us our best look at the main characters yet.
