Well, it looks like we have to grab some bag of patience as The Last of Us Part II got delayed. One of the most anticipated games from Naughty Dog is delayed from February 21, 2020, to May 29, 2020. So, let’s wait for a while for the comeback of Ellie in the video game industry in May 2020.

Check out the statement from The Last of Us game director Neil Druckmann below via PlayStation Blog.

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.

For a brief background, this game is a post-apocalyptic, action-adventure survival game developed by Naughty Dog and published by Sony Interactive Entertainment. This is the sequel to the first game, The Last of Us, which garnered multiple accolades including the Game of the Year in 2013.

The game sets five years after the first game. After the dangerous journey across the post-apocalyptic United States, the main protagonists Ellie and Joel have settled down in Wyoming. However, danger arrives once again as a constant threat of the infected is emerging as more survivors want to save their lives desperately. With this, Ellie takes on the journey alone to find out the truth behind and fights for justice. However, as she hunts closer to the truth, her actions are confronted by the physical and emotional repercussions.

    lulz, I bet PlayAsia loved hearing this! Anything to smear P.S and Xbox will have their staff jumping for joy.
    The bias is real and the thirst for Nintendo D is beyond ridiculous for y’all.
