Sony has taken to Twitter today to break the news that their highly anticipated sequel exclusive title, The Last of Us Part 2 is getting delayed until further notice.
This comes to a shock to some of us as the game was set to release late next month. However, as we all know, the growing Coronavirus pandemic has made normal living a thing of the past, and Sony has decided to hold back from releasing the game due to logistic reasons.
Developer Naughty Dog shortly after took to Twitter to update the community, and as they state, the game is nearly done development and ready to go. They are currently just ironing out some of the final bugs, but it is out of their control to release the game, which is totally understandable.
We see retail issues happening with Square Enix’s upcoming remake title – –Final Fantasy 7; the last thing Naughty Dog wants are players missing out on the game day one. So instead of compromising the launch, the developer and publisher have delayed the game until further notice.
