What you need to know

  • The Last of Us Part II was originally scheduled to release in February before being delayed into May.
  • The game has again been delayed, this time indefinitely due to the COVID-19 pandemic
  • You can preorder The Last of Us Part II for $60 at Best Buy.

The Last of Us Part II has again been delayed, this time without a new release date. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, it's certainly understandable, if frustrating. While the extended wait will be annoying, Naughty Dog has released several new screenshots from the game, showing a glimpse of new environments and more.

Since this new delay didn't even give a release window, we honestly don't know when we'll be playing The Last of Us Part II. Whenever we do, it looks like players have one incredible journey ahead of them. The delay was due to the logistics of shipping out physical copies and collector's editions, while the game itself is essentially done. Hopefully we won't be waiting long for an update from Naughty Dog and Sony Interactive Entertainment one when things will straighten out.
