The Last of Us Part II No longer due out on February 21, 2020

Maybe you can skip this and get the PS5 version at launch instead.

No longer due out on February 21, 2020.



Publisher Sony Interactive Entertainment and developer Naughty Dog have delayed The Last of Us Part II from its previously planned February 21, 2020 release date to May 29, 2020. It will be available for PlayStation 4.

Here is a message from The Last of Us Part II director Neil Druckmann regarding the delay, via the PlayStation Blog:

To our fans,

Let me cut to the chase and get the news out of the way. The Last of Us Part II has a new release date of May 29, 2020.

I know. It was just about a month ago when we had our big blowout for the game, letting media play over two hours of it along with debuting our new story trailer and revealing the release date. The positive response we saw from our community was overwhelming. You can feel the energy among the team members. After working on something for so many years, it’s invigorating to get a glimpse of validation for all the hard work.

However, it was during the last few weeks, as we were closing out sections of the game, that we realized we simply didn’t have enough time to bring the entire game up to a level of polish we would call Naughty Dog quality. At this point we were faced with two options: compromise parts of the game or get more time. We went with the latter, and this new release date allows us to finish everything to our level of satisfaction while also reducing stress on the team.

While we’re relieved that we won’t have to compromise our vision, we’re disappointed that we weren’t able to avoid this exact situation. We wish we could’ve foreseen the amount of polish we needed, but the size and scope of this game got the better of us. We hate disappointing our fans and for that we’re sorry.

We hope you understand that this additional time ensures that The Last of Us Part II lives up to our collective ambition as well as our commitment to the highest level of quality. We know the extra few months will add to what may already be an excruciating wait for all of us. We are grateful for your patience and continued support. Come next May, you will finally rejoin Ellie in The Last of Us Part II.

Assuming it will be there at launch. I think the remaster of the first came after launch. 7 months after launch actually.
So, depends on how bothered you are.

They won't release a remaster because PS5 is backwards compatible with PS4.
