The Last Of Us: Part II

The Last Of Us Part II Has Been Delayed Indefinitely

Even though video games seemed to be the last normal thing left at the moment, delays were always going to be inevitable, and that’s exactly what’s happened this morning with The Last Of Us Part II being delayed indefinitely.

This is the second time the game has been delayed after it moved from its original release date of February 21 to May 29th. As of now, the game has no new release date. Naughty Dog has said in a statement that this delay is due to logistics beyond their control, so it’s unclear how long it’ll be before we see the game, but as it’s due to COVID-19, it will likely be the later end of the year.

The statement reads:

As you’ve likely just seen, the release of The Last Of Us Part II has been delayed. We’re sure the news is just as disappointing to you as it is to us. We wanted to reach out to all of you in our community to give you a little more information.

The good news is, we’re nearly done with development of The Last Of Us Part II. We are in the midst of fixing our final bugs.

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. We want to make sure everyone gets to play The Last Of Us Part II around the same time, ensuring that we’re doing everything possible to preserve the best experience for everyone. This meant delaying the game until such a time where we can solve these logistic issues.

We were bummed about this decision but ultimately understood it’s what’s best and fair to all players. We’re hoping that this won’t be a long delay and we’ll update you as soon as we have more information to share.

We wish you all, your families and your friends the best of health. Thank you for being amazing fans and your continued support.

Stay Safe!

-Naughty Dog
