Following a nasty leak that includes major spoilers for the title, Sony have now announced a new release date for The Last of Us 2, including an adjusted timeline for Ghost of Tsushima as well. June 19 and July 17 will be the new dates for The Last of Us 2 and Ghost of Tsushima, respectively.
An announcement by none other than Hermen Hulst himself, Head of Worldwide Studios SIE, was made through the PlayStation Blog, stating that an ease in the global distribution environment has led to confirming the following release dates for both titles.
As our teams at Sony Interactive Entertainment and Worldwide Studios approach development milestones and confront a world changed by COVID-19, we find ourselves having to adapt to today’s ever-changing environment. Amidst some disruptions to our working styles, we wanted to provide an update to PlayStation gamers who are eager to learn when our next exclusive titles will arrive to PlayStation 4.
As we begin to see an ease in the global distribution environment, I am pleased to confirm that The Last of Us Part II will arrive on June 19. And Ghost of Tsushima will follow on July 17.
I want to personally congratulate and thank both the teams at Naughty Dog and Sucker Punch Productions on their achievements, as we know it’s not an easy feat to reach the finish line under these circumstances. Both teams have worked hard to deliver world-class experiences, and we can’t wait to see what you think of them when they release in just a few short months.
And finally, I want to thank the PlayStation Community for their continuous support and patience.
Despite the ongoing worldwide situation, it’s been a heck of a summer for games and gamers. With Resident Evil 3 and Final Fantasy 7 Remake in the bag, expect these 2 titles to take it home for Sony leading into the next generation.
