About a week ago, Sony Interactive Entertainment announced that the release of The Last of Us 2 will be delayed indefinitely because of the Covid19 crisis. The publisher has not yet officially confirmed a new date, however, a listing from Amazon suggests that the title of Naughty Dog will arrive in June 2020.
According to Amazon, The Last of Us 2 is said to release on June 26, 2020. The survival action-adventure title was originally scheduled to release in stores on May 29th. The date specified by Amazon would be less than a month later, which could make the game appear earlier than some fans suspect. Nevertheless, you should enjoy the information with extreme caution.
Many fans know that Ghost of Tsushima is supposed to release on June 26, 2020. We believe that both the samurai game of Sucker Punch and The Last of Us 2 will be released on the same day, simply because this decision would be uneconomical for Sony.
Neil Druckmann has also emphasized that they want to release the game as soon as possible in one of his tweets. A possible scenario, therefore, emerges that The Last of Us 2 takes the release slot of Ghost of Tsushima on June 26, 2020, and the latter is again delayed for a few weeks. On the other hand, shortly after the delay of TloU 2, Sony emphasized that nothing should change in the release date of Ghost of Tsushima.
The date on Amazon could simply be a placeholder. We always have to keep that in mind with such listings. Nevertheless, we will urge everyone to take this news with a pinch of salt and wait for the official confirmation from the publishers.
