According to IGN, Best Buy has changed the release date from May 7th to June 18th. All the other retailers have not made the changes yet. After contacting Sony for confirmation, they got a response confirming the release date being pushed back. The release date, however, isn’t the 18th but will instead be on June 14th. And yes, that is a Friday worldwide release.

Naughty Dog released the following:

As a team we pride ourselves on setting a very high quality bar for every aspect of our games – gameplay, story, art, design, technology and more. We want to make sure The Last of Us raises that bar even further – for ourselves, and most importantly, our fans.

As we entered the final phase of development for The Last of Us, we came to realize just how massive Joel and Ellie’s journey is. But instead of cutting corners or compromising our vision, we came to the tough decision that the game deserved a few extra weeks to ensure every detail of The Last of Us was up to Naughty Dog’s internal high standards.
