Is The Last of Us Remake on Steam?

When The Last of Us Part 1 drops on consoles Friday, PC players will be left out in the cold. However, Naughty Dog has confirmed a PC release is in the works, and shouldn't be too far behind the PS5 release.

The latest news on the PC version comes courtesy of Naughty Dog senior environment texture artist Jonathan Benainous. When a Twitter user commented on the the eventual PC release, Benainous replied: "Glad to hear you're hyped man! PC version should come out a bit later, but very soon after the PS5 release!"

Although that's hardly a firm timeline, it does provide PC players with some hope that they'll be sneaking around the lushly remastered environments of The Last of Us Part 1 in the near future.
