The Last of Us Part 2’s New Release Date
The Last of Us 2’s recent delay from its May 29 release date resulted in the issuing of automatic refunds. Director Neil Druckmann at Naughty Dog explained that the global pandemic had meant physical copies couldn’t be guaranteed, which limit Last of Us 2’s release to locations with good internet infrastructure.
Ghost of Tsushima, the samurai open-world game by Infamous creator Sucker Punch, was originally scheduled for June 26 but has also been delayed back to allow The Last of Us Part 2 some breathing room. Ghost of Tsushima will likely be the last major Sony exclusive for PS4 ahead of the release of PS5 planned for the last quarter of this 2020.
With Last of Us 2 story spoilers leaking today, the newly confirmed, relatively short, wait time to avoid said spoilers is most welcome. You can also pass the time with our hands-on with The Last of Us’ long-awaited sequel, and our conversation with Druckmann about Joel’s role in The Last of Us Part 2, why The Last of Us Part 2 isn’t an open world game, and how dogs affect stealth and combat in The Last of Us sequel.
