The PlayStation 4’s grand jewel has been delayed, again.
It was announced today that Naughty Dog’s upcoming blockbuster The Last of Us Part II has been delayed until further notice. This, of course, is due to the global COVID-19 pandemic that is affecting the entire planet. Thus, it comes to us as no surprise that the game would be delayed since production lines have been drastically halted as the world continues to ‘flatten the curve’ of this viral outbreak. The Last of Us Part II was scheduled to release May 29th on PS4. In addition to The Last of Us Part II being delayed, it was also announced that the upcoming Iron Man VR game for PS4 has also been delayed indefinitely.
Update: SIE has made the difficult decision 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.
