If a video on Turkish website Multiplayer is any indication, The Last of Us is coming to PlayStation 4 this summer, and it will come packing single-player DLC Left Behind.

According to NeoGAF user Quirah (via user chadskin), Sercan Sulun, PlayStation’s Eurasian software market manager, says that while a sequel to The Last of Us may not be forthcoming any time soon, the “first game will be released this summer for PS4 as a physical and digital copy, with enhanced graphics.”

If this is true (and it appears that it is, as Sulun is a high-ranking member of Sony that’s been with the company since August of 2012) then this would be a huge win for PS4 gamers hungry for some first party content.

Other than Infamous: Second Son, Driveclub, MLB 14: The Show, and The Order: 1886, no triple-A first party games have been announced in PlayStation 4's 2014 calendar.

The Last of Us launched exclusively on PlayStation 3 in June of 2013. As of mid-March, The Last of Us has sold over six million copies.

UPDATE:  A Turkish speaker has provided IGN with a more thorough translation of what Sercan Sulun told Multiplayer.

"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 PS4 version will also include the DLC so you will be able to play 'Left Behind' as well."
