Sad news for The Last Of Us fans. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, The Last Of Us 2 has been delayed indefinitely. It was slated for a release date on May 29, 2020, after being pulled back initially from February.
PlayStation released a statement to confirm the news, citing that the pandemic is “preventing us from providing the launch experience our players deserve.”
Naughty Dog, the developers, also issued a statement on Twitter.
“The good news is, we’re nearly done with development of The Last of Us Part II,” the developers said. “However, even with us finishing the game, we were faced with the reality that due to logistics beyond our control, we couldn’t launch The Last of Us Part II to our satisfaction.”
