After entering a long period of development for five years, The Last of Us Part II is finally getting closer to its release date. Since it was announced through the PlayStation Experience in 2016, this game has indeed become the spotlight of many gamers around the world who can not wait for its release.
This anticipation is reinforced by the fact that the original series The Last of Us has entered the ranks of the best games for the past decade, so the expectation for the sequel will certainly be even higher.
This game has already been announced to be released on February 21 next year, but for some reason, unfortunately, the Naughty Dog had to postpone the game’s release to May 29.
This announcement was made via a recent post from the director Neil Druckmann on PlayStation.Blog. He also posted it via Twitter and offered his apologies to the fans.
The Last of Us Part II Postponed to May, because?
Regarding the reasons for the cancellation itself, Druckmann explained that during the last few weeks the development team was facing pressure to polish the game.
To complete this process and achieve the expected quality, unfortunately, they did not have enough time to force Druckmann and his team to postpone the release for several months. Of course, they feel disappointed because they can not pursue the expected release target, but the quality of the game is a more important priority for them.
From the blog post, The Last of Us Part II is planned to be released on May 29, 2020, exclusively for PlayStation 4.
