If the title stings more than a bite from a clicker, we are sorry, but The Last of Us 2 from Naughty Dog and Sony, has been delayed by roughly two months. The highly-anticipated PS4 exclusive has supposed to release on 21 February but the developer has revealed that the new release date is 29 May 2020.
This news comes just one month after the first Last of Us 2 release date was revealed at the State of Play from Sony. Developer Naughty Dog took the PlayStation Blog to rip the bandaid off and explain why a new Last of Us 2 release date was needed. In short, the game is huge and the developer needs more time to reach the level of polish that they are known for in their PS4 exclusive titles.
Neil Druckmann, the director on Last of Us 2, started off by getting the delay news out of the way and then talked about the last few months and how great the feedback from the community was, then continued to explain a Last of Us 2 delay had to happen.
Naughty Dog is known for their polish and delivering top-class PS4 exclusive titles, so a two-month delay for The Last of Us 2 to get the game to the level they want it to be isn’t that bad at all.
