Naughty Dog revealed earlier today that the highly anticipated video game, The Last of Us Part II, has been delayed indefinitely.
Originally set for a February release, the game had already been bumped to the later release date of May 29th 2020. Now due to the ongoing shitshow CoVid-19 is currently causing worldwide, Naughty Dog has decided to delay the game indefinitely with no current release date.
They issued the following statement via their social media channels earlier.
"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. 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 possible to preserve the best experience for everyone. This meant delaying the game until such a time where we cam resolve these logistic issues. We were bummed about this decision but ultimately understood it's what's best and fair to all our players. We're hoping that this won't be a long delay and we'll update you as soon as we have new 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. Stay safe!"
Fingers crossed the delay isn't long and we get to play the game sooner rather than later. We'll keep you updated as best we can.
