Last night Sony and Naughty Dog announced the release date for The Last of Us 2. Ellie’s adventure will continue early next year on 21 February.
The news was announced during the PlayStation State of Play livestream, which included a new trailer for the game. I’m not going to explain anything in the trailer, just watch it for yourself.
The release date isn’t a big surprise, with many suspecting an early 2020 release date and a there even being a suggestion that Sony and Naughty Dog delayed the release to give Death Stranding a chance as the big PS4 exclusive for the holidays.
Expect more information about The Last of Us 2 in the next while as there is a media event happening overseas with a few sites getting extended hands-on time with the game. Until then, watch the trailer and let the questions start building up as we get some more information and something to think about.
