The Last of Us 2: Will It Be on PS5?
The Last of Us 2 will be playable on PS5 thanks to the next-gen system's backwards compatibility functionality. Sony's said that 1,000s of PS4 games will run on the new console at launch, and given the sequel's status it's all but guaranteed that it will be among the supported software. You can find out more about backwards compatibility in our PS5 guide.
While the backwards compatible version will likely utilise PS5's hardware to improve loading times and clean up any performance issues, Sony's yet to comment on whether there will be an upgraded next-gen version designed to take advantage of the new hardware. The Last of Us Remastered launched on PS4 shortly after the console's launch, and its sequel could follow a similar trajectory on PS5.
