With The Last of Us: Part II set to go big during next week's State of Play broadcast, many eager PlayStation fans are hoping for a release date. After all, it's been over a year since we last saw Naughty Dog's sequel in action.
As it turns out, the release date may have arrived early. An updated product page for The Last of Us: Part II on Swiss website Softridge has the title pegged for launch on the 28th February, 2020. However, said product page appears to have been taken down -- perhaps because it really was a leak? We won't know for sure until State of Play rolls around on Tuesday, but it's worth noting that a February 2020 release date falls in line with what we've heard before.
Back in June, The Last of Us star Ashley Johnson almost let the release date slip in an interview, hinting that February was the month that Naughty Dog was targeting. On top of that, numerous sources came together in July, saying that The Last of Us: Part II was, again, set for February 2020.
In any case, a 28th February release date would put The Last of Us: Part II just a few days ahead of Final Fantasy VII Remake. What a week that would be!
Do you think this is the release date? Place your bets in the comments section below.
If leak is true then i was off by 4 days. I forgot big games like to release on Fridays anymore. I forgot to take that to account but the 5 month rule still good when it comes to sony games the trand continues.
My birthday! Haha. Word of a February launch has been going around for so long, it'd almost be weird if it was earlier or later.
PS5 version wont matter when you can just play the Ps4 version on the Ps5
@PhantomXIII I'd imagine the PS4 will just have a patch for PS5 with it being backwards compatible
I'm really hoping rereleases from the previous gen become a thing past on the PS5/neXtBox
I have no problem with a February release date. Would prefer an early Feb date since it's a little further away from a loaded March/April lol.
Sounds about right, I doubt i’ll get it immediately with it being so close to FF7 and then Cyberpunk but I never know how I’m gunna be feeling one day to the next 🤪
🅾🅺🅰🆈 when you think about it! All Playstation first party have released 2 games this Gen right? Kill zone and horizon zero daw. ( naughty ಠᴥಠ dog uncharted and last of us.) but sucker punch is taking it time. Only released infamous..?? If ghost of toshima released I doubt it tho... 😉. And. You got god of war
This and FF7 gon be easy day ones and a massive hiatus from work lol
Is next year a leap year??
@Ridwaano wow. You should maybe do a little research on what Sony 1st party has pumped out this gen
@Frigate Wrong Comment Sorry ;]
Early 2019 is starting to look pretty crazy.
February is a perfect time to release, given the theme of the game..
I've heard from a few of my own sources within Sony that this release date isn't true. It's a placeholder that's been around for a while. Despite how popular the February 2020 prediction has been, they said that Naughty Dog are aiming for May.
I'm still taking this with a heavy grain of salt, because February makes more sense to me than May. And I'd prefer it come out in February so I can play it sooner.
My source said the game is cancelled, and they're working on Knack 3 instead.
@Octane Is your source able to say if Ice Knack is back or not?
I'm not getting too excited as I feel it might be later, but February would be awesome
I dont believe it (yet). Would Sony really release it within days of its exclusive partnership with Square for FF7 Remake. Cant imagine Square would be happy and i dont see the benefit in splitting consumer base
I think this is placeholder. Still banking on 14th February.
Talking about triple aaa
@get2sammyb yes i agree with you : February 14 or 21
I hope it's released a bit sooner. Give me at least a week to finish it before FFVII is out, otherwise I'll probably leave it until after Cyberpunk...
I am genuinely quite gutted that, if true, this and FF7 Remake are out so close together. My oldest best game of all time vs my newest best game of all time?! And to top it all off, if it releases on the 14th Feb, that is the due date of my third child!! I have serious decisions to make come Feb/March......
My sources say April and it’ll be a straight to plus freebie..... a thank you to all us sony fans for making this gen a one horse race...
My source was my milkman has he was drunk at the time but hey he is as legit as most sources people claim to have on comment sections
Perhaps naughty dog will come clean that they unable to reach expectations about LOU2. Cancel it and release a new game based on a cross between space invaders and populous... FTS.. Hype is doing me in..
At that point I'd probably just wait 6 months and play it on the ps5. I've waited this long so why not wait just a bit longer for what will easily be a better version.
@Stocksy believe the milkman, he's my dad. Or so my mum tells me.
Like some others have said, that'd just mean I'm not gonna get it until much later thanks to FFVII and Cyberpunk.
Yea I think it was a real leak of a true rumour from a serious site of a fake date and pic.
What's funny is if they announce the release for a later month then all these gaming sites will absolutely not admit they got it wrong. Instead they ll go with the narrative that the game has been delayed many times as a fact from then on, somehow in the same way they did for Days Gone.
I still think it would release in June because of my whynot source haha
It will be February, I believe. Also by March we should have a look at the PS5 so it releases in like October or November
@Matroska Bigger chance for me that the other games come later Last of Us 2 stands higher for me and im a Final Fantasy 7 megafan. But Square Enix made a lot of annoying choices this generation.
@KnightWolf Not quite. They could have better lighting effects, 3D audio, and improved textures to legitimize the existence of a PS5 'definitive' edition.
Don't care when it comes out, going to have to get it day of release so it doesn't get spoiled by any of you lot .
FOMO - who needs it? Why do gamers have to own and finish every game the week it’s released?
Patience... the games are still there!
I cannot wait, well I can ‘cos I have to lol, but I think the wait has been quite long enough now. This is the biggest game I’m looking forward to other than Death Stranding. It’s going to be a whoppa!
