The long awaited Part II of The Last of Us had been scheduled for release on PlayStation 4 on February 21, 2020. However, because it is not yet up to the manufacturer's standards, it will be postponed to May 29, 2020.
The news came from Neil Druckmann, creative director of Naughty Dog. “At this point we face two options: compromising parts of the game or asking for more time,” reads the post.
The second option was chosen, as the new release date allows to end everything with the “level of satisfaction” that the producer wants, reducing also the “stress on the team.
Right now it turns out to be a mixed feeling for the team that makes the game, according to Druckman. On the one hand, they are relieved that they have more time to improve the game, but at the same time are disappointed that they have to resort to a postponement.
Team feels the game has exceeded production expectations
Druckman really liked to have anticipated the amount of improvement the game needed, but feels that the game has "outdone itself". However, he apologized to fans who are looking forward to the new title. However, they will not be too concerned as they will want the best game possible.
Remember that the The Last of Us It was a Sony exclusive released in 2013 for PlayStation 3. The game has been widely awarded, and the second part brings back such striking characters as Joel or Ellie in this sequel in a post-apocalyptic scenario.
