Naughty Dog’s Playstation-exclusive ‘The Last of Us Part II’ is out in just two weeks from now.
The game has been in development since 2014 and was officially announced during the Playstation Experince in December 2016 and confirmed to be a sequel to the original 2013 release. That trailer revealed the return of both Ellie and Joel.
Five years have passed since the first game and Ellie is now 19 years old, also the main character, who already in the first game was playable for some sections, though Joel (who should by now be in his mid-fifties) was the primary playable character.
‘The Last of Us Part 2’ has been delayed twice, first for further development and then due to logistical problems arising from the COVID-19 pandemic. The initial targeted date was February, 21st (2020) but pushed back and aimed for May 29th (2020).
No further delays will occur, so mark your calendars for June, 19th.
You probably remember ‘The Last of Us’, THE title that proved to be a major hit with audiences and critics. It was described as a technical masterpiece and was released just months before the release of current gen consoles.
It got a remaster on the PS4, BUT everyone, and I really mean EVERYONE have been waiting for the sequel since rumors regarding its development started spreading.

It will be released on June 19th.
