The Last of Us Remake could get a release rather soon as Sony has pushed God of War Ragnarok from its expected internal date of Q3 to Q4 2022.
First, to explain this new rumor, we need to talk about its credibility. This comes from the same source who had leaked the State of Play presentation that Sony had planned earlier this June. The leaker had listed almost every single announcement that was a part of the State of Play event including Resident Evil 4 Remake.

The user was able to share the details of the State of Play before it even begin. They also shared the name of the new horror game that is being developed by Kojima Productions. It is called Overdose as we saw later through a leak revealed by Tom Henderson.

The latest leak from the same user reveals that The Last of Us Part 1 is coming to PC and Consoles in September. They mention a release date of September 9, 2022, for Part 1. It has been rumored for a while that The Last of Us Remake and a Director’s Cut of The Last of Us 2 is releasing later in 2022.

Another update regarding an upcoming Sony PlayStation exclusive came for God of War Ragnarok. Its release date was moved internally from September 30, 2022, to December 31, 2022. This suggests that it might have been pushed to Q4 2022, perhaps to make place for The Last of Us Remake.
Tom Henderson, who is a reliable leaker, also appears to suggest that this might mean God of War Ragnarok could have been delayed internally.

There is no official announcement regarding both of these two games but there is a Summer Games Fest planned for later this week which will also have announcements potentially from Sony and other third-party developers. Capcom is also planning to host their own showcase on June 13 which is rumored to have an announcement of a next-generation patch of Resident Evil 2, 3, and 7.
