While we were all looking forward to The Last of Us 2 this May, it seems we’re going to have to wait yet again. Naughty Dog has announced The Last of Us 2 delayed news today.
Over on Twitter, Naughty Dog announced that while they are the midst of fixing the game’s final bugs, and that they are facing logistic issues beyond their control.
As you’ve likely just seen, the release of The Last of Us Part II has been delayed. We’re sure this news is just as disappointing to you as it is to us. We wanted to reach out to all of you in our community to give you a little more information.
The good news is, we’re nearly done with development of The Last of Us Part II. We are in the midst of fixing our final bugs.
However, even with us finishing the game, we were faced with the reality that due to logistics beyond our control, we couldn’t launch The Last of Us Part II to our satisfaction. We want to make sure everyone gets to play The Last of us Part II around the same time, ensuring that we’re doing everything poissible to preserve the best experience for everyone. This meant delaying the game until such time where we can solve these logistic issues.
We were bummed about this decision but ultimately understood it’s what’s best and fair to all of our players. We’re hoping that this won’t be a long delay and we’ll update you as soon as we havenew information to share.
We wish you all, your families, and your friends the best of health. Thank you for being amazing fans and your continued support.
Unfortunately, there’s no date or timeframe when we should expect the game to ship. That said, given they are in the final stages of bug fixing, it shouldn’t be that long.
