The Last of Us Part II has been in the works for a long time now and fans of the original game have been waiting patiently (and not-so patiently in some cases) for the next installment. Sadly, they will have to wait a bit longer since director Neil Druckmann recently made a blog update about the game. He announced that the release of the game has been pushed to May 29, 2020. The original release date, along with a trailer, was announced almost a month ago.
Druckmann writes that they had to face the choice of either releasing a game they didn’t feel were up to “Naughty Dog quality”, or push the release back a few months. He mentions how disappointed the team is about not being able to deliver the game up to their standards at the original release date, but says that the extra time will enable them to make this game live up to their collective ambition and high level of quality.
While we all settle in for a few extra months of waiting, you can check out the trailer below and pre-order the game here.
