Neil Druckmann the director of The Last of Us Part 2 announced on the PlayStation blog today that the Last of Us 2 has been delayed until May 29th 2020.
According to the post:
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.
As fans of the series we are disappointed but understand the need to delay the game to add a ‘level of polish’.We can’t wait to Spring!
