Last Month during Playstation’s State of Play Naughty Dog announced The Last of Us II would be released on February 21, 2020. They had a 3 hour demo available for some industry influencers to make write ups. They announced they had no plans for multiplayer so they can focus entirely on the single player narrative. All seemed well, until this morning.
In a blog post on the Playstation Blog (posted below) Naughty Dog head Neil Druckmann writes that over the last couple of weeks while reviewing sections before the game goes gold, they noticed not everything was at the level of polish that they consider Naughty Dog quality. Neil states this created two scenarios: Compromise their artistic vision to release in February or ask for more time. Luckily they chose the latter and because of that we’ll still be getting NaugNaughty’s fully intended sequel which is supposedly their biggest game to date.
Hopefully this keeps the developers from going into crunch. And with it being so far now what will happen to Ghost of Tsushima? We’ll just have to keep an eye out as The Last of Us II Now releases on May 29th, 2020!
