The Last of Us Bucks Gaming Trends by Releasing in the Summer

by Dave Walsh

Something happens to the gaming world in the summer, something ominous and terrible, it is called the “Summer Drought.” It is bound to happen just about every year, where all of a sudden the market dries up for new games while everyone awaits what is usually a busy fall and holiday season for new releases. It follows what is usually a pretty low-key spring and a busy winter, with all of the games that didn’t make the holiday release date coming out in the first few months of the year. It has been this way for as long as I can remember and while looking through this summer’s list of upcoming releases, it doesn’t look to be changing anytime soon.

But, there is still hope, as Naughty Dog will be releasing their heavily-anticipated The Last of Us this June, right near the beginning of the summer season. (PS3, The Last Of Us)

Be warned that there are leaks of spoilers for the last of us going around the net. I advise gamers to avoid articles that try an spoil it for you. Previews should be ok.

There are none in this.

thanks for the warning, dude.

And I hope Naughty Dog starts a new trend by releasing their game in the summer. I'm SICK of summer drought and an overflow of games in the fall. NEEDS to be balanced better so games don't get overshadowed by other titles.
