When is The Last of Us: Part II coming out? People seem to be split on whether the hotly anticipated sequel will be arriving this year or next. Rumours and hearsay have suggested a 2019 release for Naughty Dog's latest, but it's almost impossible to call it one way or the other right now.
The latest hint that the game will launch sooner rather than later comes directly from Gustavo Santaolalla, the composer for both The Last of Us titles. During a live concert, the musician told the crowd he'd be playing some of his work from the original game, but also from The Last of Us: Part II, which he added "is coming very soon." Some have taken this to mean it's launching in 2019, but realistically, "very soon" could mean more or less anything. The composer has obviously been working closely with Naughty Dog, but we don't really know how much insider information he'll have on things like release dates.
What do you think? Is The Last of Us: Part II arriving this year? Is Santaolalla simply playing the crowd, or does he know something we don't know? Let the speculation continue in the comments below.

Hmm,maybe that leaked date from amazon.it a while back is true for march 29.
According to this article (3rd paragraph down) developers start the soundtrack process at various stages of development. It just depends on the game and developer as to when it starts, so I would say it's very hard to tell when it will be out. https://uk.ign.com/articles/2012/09/18/behind-the-music-how-video-game-soundtracks-are-made
Its not this year, i would say spring 2020.
@hulkie That seems incredibly unlikely for SEVERAL reasons
Be a surprise announcement on 1st April and no one will believe it.
Please Sony make it ps5 launch title this game will be so much better next gen console.
I happen to know the exact date of release. I'll tell you all very soon.
2019 has been hinted too many times, while its obvious that Ghost Of Tsushima is in 2020 with PS5.
last of us will release after days gone around e3 2019.that game will be PlayStation main event.word up son
August or september. Give days gone a couple months
to be fair, god of war and spiderman had their release dates announced with only 3 months to go.
I'm thinking 3Q or 4Q of 2019 is quite possible (at least for one of the 3 between Death Stranding, Ghost of Tushima and TLOUII)
And we have already seen gameplay of the TLOUII so yeah, my guess is 2019
or maybe he literally meant that a little bit of his work from the last of us ii will be coming soon.. perhaps a few tracks from the soundtrack will be available for people to listen on spotify or whatever.
@hulkie that would be quite the birthday for me Brexit shenanigans and TLOU2 😂
"very soon" in gaming terms could be years away!
@NintendoFan4Lyf yeah that will be amazing.and I believe it will come around.but then again .they can change the release date to holiday 2019 around Thanksgiving .word up son
My moneys on this year... Either march (hoping) or October
I'm hoping for this year, but I'm betting on next year. I think this is gonna be the PS4's swan song.
I'm expecting both Death Stranding and Last of Us: Part II to release in the last half of this year (with Ghost of Tsushima coming next year), though I may just be being overly optimistic because I'm looking forward to them so much! Seriously though, how many more teaser dynamic themes are Naughty Dog gonna dangle in front of us before they announce a release window/date?! 😜
Agree that coming soon could mean any time. But as it's only January and most any sane person would hear coming soon and think of a time frame of 12 months or less that's 2019, unless you think January 2020 is a good time.
And as others have alluded Days Gone is a thing. They can't risk announcing the release date for TLOU2 until after that has some time to sell. Once that gets dated it will be in the news cycle 24/7 drowning out DG. And it's not like TLOU2 needs a long lead time. Have a big blowout in June, release in Sept/Oct. That'll work.
I'm cautiously optimistic that it will come in 2019. However I thin k GoT should come out soon as well, since Sucker Punch haven't released a game since 2014.
More and more things are starting to suggest it will be this year. I guess technically pre-production would have started in late 2013 early 2014, so maybe it is possible?
Yea, the PS5 is coming 'soon' too.
That doesn't mean anything.
This can't be for nothing.
Tail end of this year, I reckon... maybe in time for Christmas. Then probably some firm PS5 news in the first 3 months of 2020, with a launch around November.
No disrespect to a composer but ... would they really be in on a release date to one of the most anticipated PS game? The less folks know the better is probably what Naughty Dog are thinking...
@Badboyfx86 I say no. Ghost of..... will come out this year!
Still think it could be this year, but wouldn't bet the house on it! It's easily my most anticipated game, but I'm in no rush for it. If it's next year, then so be it.
Retailers say it's coming this year. Apparently, Animal Crossing has a placeholder date and the guy from GameStop said it can come sooner. So, there's no real reason not to believe it won't come this year.
He says, the musician told the crowd he'd be playing some of his work from the original game, but also from The Last of Us: Part II, which he added "is coming very soon." Which I think he means the piece of music will be coming soon more than an actual game.
@ApostateMage Don't if you're serious but if you are Don't say it let ND do it
