The launch of the series The Last of Us is imminent on HBO Max and it looks daunting. The chain has even more disproportionate ambitions than for Game of Thrones.
Series The Last of Us will be available on January 15 on HBO Max across the Atlantic and as with all adaptations, the fans of the first hour are worried. New information should nevertheless reassure them a little.

For example, we learned that violence would be less but for a good cause or that we should discover one of the game’s greatest secrets. only.
The magazine The New Yorker reveals to us that HBO has granted a simply colossal budget.

A rumor suggests that Amazon Prime Video could assume the interim while waiting for a more permanent solution, but it would not be for now given that the series The Last of Us is not listed in the January releases.
