Naughty Dog to rename Outbreak Day during the pandemic

Makes sense.

Naughty Dog will change the name of The Last of Us’ celebratory Outbreak Day in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, the studio has recently declared.

“For the last 7 years, September 26 has been our opportunity to recognize and celebrate the incredible passion of The Last of Us community,” Naughty Dog wrote on Twitter. “However, as we though about the events of the last year and the challenges we all continue to face, we didn’t feel right continuing on under the ‘Outbreak Day’ banner.”

As such, 26 September will simply be The Last of Us Day.

The Last of Us Remastered and The Last of Us Part 2 are currently available on PS4.
