Sony has delayed Naughty Dog’s highly anticipated The Last of Us Part II due to the COVID-19 emergency.

The sequel to the acclaimed 2013 action-adventure game was due to launch on May 29. However, Sony has now revealed an indefinite postponement. In a statement posted on the official PlayStation Twitter page, the company blamed logistical problems caused by the global pandemic.

“[Faced] with the reality that due to logistics beyond our control, we couldn’t launch The Last of Us Part II to our satisfaction,” Naughty Dog explained in a statement. “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.”

This is not the first time that Sony has delayed The Last of Us Part II. Back in October of last year, Naughty Dog pushed back the release from the original date of February 21, 2020.

The delay of such a high profile game has also led to speculation about Ghost of Tsushima. A release date for the game was only revealed in March, with the title expected to launch on June 26, 2020.

According to Sony, the Ghost of Tsushima launch schedule has no changes. In a follow-up tweet, the company confirmed it had no plans to delay any other games at this time. Of course, things could change over the next few weeks and months.

  1. Uhh yeah! I really don’t get this delay! I don’t see how the coronavirus is preventing Naughty Dog from relasing the last of us 2 on june 26th, other big games like cyberpunk 2077 and ghosts of tushima are releasing on schedule. Do you think that tlou 2 will possibly release in the fall? I really hope so. Also i hope we still get a playstation 4 version of tlou 2 too, if Naughty Dog makes tlou 2 exclusive to ps5 only i’m gonna be effing ticked!
