The Naughty Dog title will reportedly be out summer of 2014, says a Sony executive. However, upon further prodding by gaming sites, a spokesperson for Sony Computer Entertainment Europe says otherwise.

News of The Last of Us and its rumored summer 2014 release first broke out after PlayStation Turkey Vice President Sercan Sulun confirmed the release in a CNN interview.

Translated by IGN, Sulun allegedly said, "There is no information about a new The Last of Us game but I can share this knowledge; as of this summer, The Last of Us will be on the PS4. Both on PSN and physically."

The Sony Turkey executive also added, "The PS4 version will also include the DLC so you will be able to play Left Behind as well."

However, Eurogamer reports that The Last of Us has not been confirmed for a summer 2014 release. "At no time have we announced that The Last of Us is coming to PS4 and therefore, have nothing to say on the subject," a Sony Computer Entertainment Europe spokesperson told the outlet.

Eurogamer also notes that the spokesperson insists there was no accidental announcement for the Naughty Dog title. Kotaku says that Sulun might have slipped up, saying that he might have "announced The Last of Us for PS4 before the PR schedule dictated that it was okay, and Sony is trying to deny that by saying they haven't really announced it even though a Sony executive just did."

Sulun has been an employee of Sony since 2012, notes Eurogamer. He "should know what he's talking about," the outlet adds. On the other hand, Naughty Dog has not talked about any release date for The Last of Us on the PS4.

"We're just getting our Naughty Dog engine up and running on PS4 as we work on the next Uncharted project. We will see what the future brings!" community manager Eric Monacelli commented in a February blog.
