Last Of Us remake animator hits back at cash grab complaints

As fans remain divided on the Last Of Us remake, one of the game’s animators has refuted criticism of it being a mere cash grab.

Even if its announcement hadn’t been leaked prior, capping off the Summer Game Fest presentation with the remake of The Last Of Us would have elicited the same level of apathy from a sizable chunk of the audience.

Officially titled The Last Of Us Part 1, there are two major points of contention people have with the remake. The first is that it’s being sold at £70 (the PlayStation 4 remaster is still easily available at only £15) and the second is that the original game isn’t even 10 years old yet, and still looks great.

As a result there have been many accusations that this remake is nothing more than a cash grab, something which a developer on the game has taken umbrage with.

Robert Morrison, who was a cinematic animator for the remake at PlayStation Studios Visual Arts, issued a defence of the remake on his personal Twitter, saying ‘Actually it’s the most meticulously built and crafted project that I have ever seen or been a part of in my entire career. The highest level of care and attention to detail possible.’

He briefly touches on the game’s price tag as well, saying that it’s ultimately up to the individual whether they think it’s worth it.

‘The price of the game is out of my control and worth is subjective to each individual. You can decide for yourself if you want it or not,’ he says. ‘All I’m saying is I am in awe of the work that an amazing group of people did on the project. A tremendous amount of passion was put into it.’

In fact, the remake will lack the original game’s multiplayer, meaning it offers less content.
