Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us Part II, which was set for release on May 29th, has been delayed.
“The good news is, we’re nearly done with development,” Naughty Dog said in a statement. “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 were bummed about this decision but ultimately understood it’s what’s best and fair to all of our players.”
“Extremely sad to deliver this news to y’all,” Neil Druckmann, Vice President of Naughty Dog, wrote on Twitter in response to the announcement. “Ultimately, the situation is out of our control. We hope you understand. Stay safe out there.”
“We’re hoping this won’t be a long delay,” Naughty Dog added.
The game does not currently have a rescheduled release date. We’ll bring you more information as we hear it.
