Sony and Naughty Dog have postponed the release of the action adventure The Last of Us 2 indefinitely. Development of the game is almost complete, but logistical problems – probably due to the corona virus – currently leave the teams with no other choice.
After a shift towards the end of last year, the action adventure The Last of Us 2 should actually be released on May 29, 2020 for the PlayStation 4. But the fans will have to be patient for a little longer. As the developer Naughty Dog Productions announced via Twitter, they had to postpone the release again – this time indefinitely. Among other things, the current situation due to the rampant corona virus seems to have a large part in this. At least that's to be read between the lines.
"As you may have seen, we have the release of The Last of Us Part 2 (buy now for € 69.99) postponed. We are sure that this news is as disappointing for you as it is for us. We wanted to target everyone in the community to provide some more detailed information. The good news is that we've almost finished developing The Last of Us Part 2. We are currently fixing the last bugs. Despite all of this, even if we finish the game, we have to face the reality that due to logistical problems beyond our control, it is not possible to publish The Last of Us Part 2 to our satisfaction. We want to make sure that everyone can play The Last of Us Part 2 at about the same time (…) This means that we postpone the game until we can solve the logistical problems. "
So there is no new date for the release of The Last of Us 2. Apparently Sony and Naughty Dog want to watch the development of the current crisis situation very carefully before making a decision in this regard. We will keep you up to date.
