The Last of Us Part 2 new release date confirmed for June

The Last of Us Part 2 has a new release date: 19 June.

The news came from Sony Interactive Entertainment’s Head of Worldwide Studios, Hermen Hulst, who also confirmed that Ghost of Tsushima would be delayed into July, likely to make room for Naughty Dog’s highly anticipated title.

Hulst said he wanted to “personally congratulate and thank both the teams at Naughty Dog and Sucker Punch Productions on their achievements, as we know it’s not an easy feat to reach the finish line under these circumstances. Both teams have worked hard to deliver world-class experiences, and we can’t wait to see what you think of them when they release in just a few short months.”

The news comes as Naughty Dog has confirmed that story spoilers for The Last of Us Part 2 have leaked, effectively confirming they’re accurate at the same time.

Expect The Last of Us Part 2 on PS4 from 19 June.
