The Last Of Us 2 release is being delayed
Fans expected that The Last of Us Part 2 would be released by the end of this year at the same time the release of the movie Death Stranding until 2020. But the tables got turned when the Sony Interactive Entertainment announced this week that the Death Stranding would be released on November 8 whereas The Last of Us Part 2 release would be delayed till 2020.
“Now, I know what you’re thinking: reports aren’t always accurate. True, but this one comes from one of the most reliable sources in the industry: Kotaku’s Jason Schreier. According to Schreier on Twitter, he heard that originally The Last of Us Part II was poised to release in fall 2019, but was recently pushed back to early 2020, possibly February 2020.”
Scheier doesn’t divulge why the game is being delayed, but it’s presumably to provide Naughty Dog a bit more time to polish the ambitious title. Also, there’s a bit of uncertainty to the claim, so perhaps The Last of Us fans can cling onto that. But, right now, it looks like we won’t be seeing the highly-anticipated sequel until early 2020.
The game, The Last of Us Part II is currently been developed by the PS4 and PS5. People have not been revealed a lot about the speciation of the game but Neil Druckmann, the game’s creative director said, “I can’t tell you how satisfying it is to finally be able to say that Ellie and Joel are back for another intense, harrowing, and emotional adventure. “Like many of you, we have a deep love for the world of The Last of Us and its characters, and while a sequel may have seemed like a foregone conclusion, it wasn’t the case. We knew that it needed to be a story worth telling and, perhaps more importantly, a story worthy of Joel and Ellie. After spending years on different ideas, we finally uncovered a story that felt special—a story that evolved into an epic journey.
