Sony had warned stakeholders last week that there was a potential "risk of delays" to first and third-party PlayStation games due to the disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The developer noted that it's in the final stages of bug fixing, suggesting that the game is nearly ready to roll out, but it seems that distribution issues have delayed it until further notice.
In a follow-up statement, developer Naughty Dog explained that while the game was almost complete, there were still a few issues that needed to be fixed. It is entirely understandable why this has happened, however.
When is the Release Date of The last of Us Part II?
Developer Naughty Dog took to Twitter to issue a statement on the delay.
The Last of Us Part II has officially entered Winds of Winter territory.
The PlayStation Twitter account followed this announcement up with another message, noting that for now, these are the only two game launches impacted by the situation.
As you've possible simply seen, the discharge of The Last of Us Part II has been delayed.
This is disappointing news, but with The Last of Us Part II so close to completion, a new release date shouldn't be too far behind.
The two companies indicated the game is merely delayed, not cancelled, until they can solve logistic issues. We'll keep you updated on the new release date soon.
Maybe it's not the worst thing in the world that a game about the terrifyingly violent breakdown of human society in the wake of a global pandemic won't release smack in the middle of a terrifying global pandemic.
It was originally announced in 2016, and has already won several "Most Anticipated" game awards.
