Ghost Of Tsushima Release Date Delay

Sony has officially confirmed a delay for Ghost of Tsushima. The PlayStation 4 exclusive was previously set to launch on the 26th June 2020, but it's been pushed back to the 17th July 2020 due to the ongoing coronavirus situation. Fortunately it's not a particularly big delay, which suggests that the game is still on track and pretty much finished.

This isn't the only big news that Sony has locked in today. It's also revealed that The Last of Us: Part II will be joining Ghost of Tsushima on PS4 this summer with a new release date.

Writing on Twitter, Sucker Punch explained that it will use the additional time to polish its forthcoming samurai open worlder: "There have certainly been challenges in adapting to game development in a Work From Home environment, but thanks to an incredible effort by our worldwide team, Ghost is nearly ready for release. There are a few finishing touches to apply and bugs to squash – so we’ll put these extra couple weeks to good use."

Earlier this month, we published a poll asking whether you thought Ghost of Tsushima would be delayed. 46 per cent of you said yes, while 25 per cent said they weren't sure. An interesting read given the news.
