Fans are expecting to see a big lineup of quality games in the coming year of 2020, but it looks like there will be a wait for PlayStation exclusive, The Last of Us Part II. Today, Sony officially announced after reports leaked out earlier that one of their most anticipated games of 2020 will be delayed until May 29, 2020. It was only a month ago on September 24th that Naughty Dog & Sony revealed the game coming out in February.
It’s clear that Naughty Dog wants to take the time to polish up the game to make sure its the quality they want it at. Here is a statement from the PlayStation Blog:
“At this point we were faced with two options: compromise parts of the game or get more time. We went with the latter, and this new release date allows us to finish everything to our level of satisfaction while also reducing stress on the team.”
Delaying The Last of Us 2 won’t hurt it at all besides the fact that fans will have to wait a little longer, but its clear Sony has no fear of delaying their first party games. The early part of 2020 is still going to be stacked with games even though Ubisoft delayed Gods & Monsters and Watch Dogs Legion.
