The Last of Us Part II delayed once more
Sony claims logistical issues to blame, no new date set
Sony Interactive Entertainment has announced plans to delay the launch of The Last of Us Part II and Marvel’s Iron Man VR until further notice.
"Logistically, the global crisis is preventing us from providing the launch experience our players deserve," said the company in a brief statement.
Developer Naughty Dog also issued a statement, saying: "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."
The Last of Us Part II was first planned to launch in February 2020, before being pushed to May 2020. No new release window was specified with this delay.
The game is planned for launch exclusively on PlayStation 4.
