Release Date Updates For The Last of Us Part II, Ghost of Tsushima

Both Naughty Dog's and Sucker Punch Productions' PS4 titles will launch this summer.

As our teams at Sony Interactive Entertainment and Worldwide Studios approach development milestones and confront a world changed by COVID-19, we find ourselves having to adapt to today’s ever-changing environment. Amidst some disruptions to our working styles, we wanted to provide an update to PlayStation gamers who are eager to learn when our next exclusive titles will arrive to PlayStation 4.

As we begin to see an ease in the global distribution environment, I am pleased to confirm that The Last of Us Part II will arrive on June 19. And Ghost of Tsushima will follow on July 17

I want 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.

And finally, I want to thank the PlayStation Community for their continuous support and patience.

  • Finally Thank you

    • I only hope there’s a fix in time for all those gamers impacted by firmware 7.50 with the infinite boot loop and BD disc drive not reading games.

    • Well, there goes $120 of my hard earned money! Thanks Sony! Thanks!!!!!

    • I will not be getting The Last of Us part 2. I will be getting Ghost of Tsushima.

      How could you do this to the franchise Naughty Dog? How exactly are you going to justify yourself for the story you have written there?

      It is awful. Disgusting. If you release this game as it is right now… It’s going to flop, and it’s going to flob hard, very hard. What a fall from grace. You used to be the best, now you’re the worst.

      What players would have wanted is to play half the game as Joel, the other half as Ellie. That’s it. It’s not hard to grasp that concept.

  • Will TLOU really have a factions mp?

    • not every game needs mp. the janky gimmick in the first game was a waste of resources that could of gone else where.

    • No Kihkdoabc, Naughty Dog had confirmed on Twitter a couple of months ago that there won’t be a Factions MP mode due to the scale of the single player campaign. However before this decision was made, the team had such a large ambition for MP that they have stated that Factions will return in the future, and apparently from another source; as a standalone game and not a add-on or DLC

    • You already know it won’t.
      They said it won’t have it and that they are planning on standalone multiplayer project in the future.

    • With the lame situation of Naughty Dog right now, I doubt they release a new MP ever.

    • Question if I pre ordered the game ahead of time before the delay for may 29 is last of us 2 still be counted for purchase if its not on shop

    • Google is you’re friend, we are not.

    • Jisatsu_Kiddo, you have no idea what you are talking about. It wasn’t a gimmick, it was one of the best multiplayer experiences out there.

      It still has a strong community to this day. Not everything needs multiplayer, but when you make something special people would like to see it continued.

    • zekececil14, I have to agree, the MP is much more fun than many other MP only games, it is fun, strategic, satisfying, and super addicting. I would pay full price just for that mode alone. I would it is definitely in my top 5 MP experiences.

    • Jisatsu_Kiddo You’re either clueless or just playing dumb. Factions had and still has to this day a big following. It’s a solid MP.

    • I heard that they are making a stand-alone multiplayer.

    • No I’m glad TLOU 2 won’t have multiplayer

    • I love all the kids telling tales on here about a dead feature. have fun playing the same 6 people in a broken and useless mode that added nothing.

    • Jisatsu_Kiddo Regardless of what you think, Factions was well recieved and a very welcomed addition to the original TLOU. It was widly popular and stayed very active for years. Can’t speak about it’s state today though. Also referring to people who are calling out your take as “kids”, kinda makes you look like one.

    • No Faction at launch.

      @jisatsu_kiddo: faction is considered to be one of the best MP. May be you like call of duty or fort nite.

      But just because you didn’t like it doesn’t mean others didn’t. To this day it has a big following.

    • “faction is considered to be one of the best MP.” No…not even close.

      “May be you like call of duty or fort nite. ” Ahhh the you tell the truth so you must play these games that have a stigma.

    • @ Jisatsu_Kiddo – True that not every game needs online and most are better without it but be quiet about things you dunno about ok?…TLoU online was one of the best and it’ll always be,it had a solid playerbase for years but it was underrated and ignored by a lotta people who were simply interested in the story and as strong as it was made most think the online was bad,something tackled on.Just don’t spit crap please.

    • @Welmosca “most are better without it but be quiet about things you dunno about ok?” You state it is better without wasted resources, I do know that is why all these kids and you are angry. Years worth of players… yea no it was dead in record time. The crappy Uncharted MP lasted longer. As you say please think before you post when you have no idea what you are talking about.

    • MP is not included in the game.
      That’s a good thing.

  • What about Iron Man VR?

  • Of this year I suppose ?

  • Thank you so much.
    Take care, guys. Can’t wait to play this future masterpiece.

  • Since TLoU II was fully spoiled online because of an employee i am looking forward to Ghost of Tsushima.

    • Really hope they go after that guy with everything.

    • Did us all a solid. What a load of tripe that game will be.

    • Normally I would be just as upset with the leaks as anyone. But in this case, I am glad those leaks are out there.

      It seems TLOU2 is all about shock/exploitation/”subverting expections”/etc. And that’s just not what I want to see from this series or these beloved characters.

    • A game that checks game journalist/Twitter boxes? Nah. These leaks have saved me money and if any of you are skeptical I suggest you vote with your wallet.

      I’m more excited for Ghost

  • TLOU2 was already released this weekend. The box has been opened and the cat is dead.

  • Can’t wait.

  • Can’t wait !!!!

  • drugs are bad for you.

  • True Exclusives these First Party Games will close the PS4 8th Generation with a big bang!

  • let’s gooo. Can’t wait for The Last of Us!!!

  • Ahazy: The definition of entitlement

  • It’s unfortunate that TLoU Part II got leaked, I happened to accidentally see one of the major ones. My experience w/ that scene won’t be the same. But hopefully I can endure and survive the next fifty-sum days XD XD

  • Una pregunta, serán lanzamientos únicamente digitales o también físicos, y las ediciones especiales serán comercializadas?

  • Think I wont hold my breath on this. If it gets released then good. Been let down too many times lol

    • You right, at this point is only a matter of wait and see if this date is going to be the real one without any expectations

  • Thank you Sony For This Great News and lightning A Hope In The Dark 🤍👍🏽🔥

  • the last of us 2 platinado por youtube.

  • TLOU 2 plot is garbage

  • ‘Delayed indefinitely’ to ‘a few weeks delay’. Did the coronavirus situation really change that much since the original delay announcement?

    Not that it matters much anyway with the leaks and all. I’ll be looking forward to GoT now.

  • Yeah it definitely feels like the leaks forced Sony and ND’s hand here. Based on the reactions to those leaks, it’s going to cost them hundreds of millions.

  • what about those who hasn’t been given the refund yet? I pre ordered the game for 29/05 and I still do not have my refund. Is it still valid? you must answer and give us information. I spedt 70 dollars on this game. TELL ME WHAT I HAVE TO DO NOW

    • Why did you preorder digitally? Were you afraid they’d run out of gigabytes? STFU

    • I had the same problem. Countdown still shows may 29th. Tried going to the ps store and preordering again and it says you are not eligible. Not sure what to make of that??

      Oh and @weaslegrub, **** you!

  • Cause the leaks.

  • i wonder how many of these people that are excited for TLOU2 will actually enjoy the ending of it. the leaks have killed my desire to buy this game brand new.

  • That’s a stupid comment… The game was supposed to release in 1 month, leaks would have hit anyways, use your brain

  • so what about those who didnt recieve the cancelation emails like me??? im talking bout the digital edition…,
    the date on my pre order is still 05/27, all those who pre order and didnt recieve the cancelation email will still get the game on the new release date?

    • Why did you preorder digitally? Were you afraid they’d run out of gigabytes?

    • @Weaselgrub, some people like to make their purchases and get them out of the way.

    • @Weaselgrub, why you acting like a little beotch. Just because you want to have your disc in hand doesn’t mean being able to download there copy doesn’t make you cool. Grow up butterball!

  • We are at least a month out from the original date so this grievance is almost null and void (defos not discounting the possibility that this was a play by someone out there to force Sony’s hand)

  • So about the last of us…

  • it’s time to update your online service and provide it for free at once. I changed the psplus for psnow and I am surprised that I do not have online in my games, how much disappointment sony

  • ghost of tsushima 😍

  • I´m a bit concerned about those abrupt releasing dates of AAA titles. Got really sad about the leak footages of TLoU 2 over YouTube and hope Sony and developer’s studios get their things straight up on future releases. Because, The worst thing is lose trust on a brand you enjoy and fustrations can follows you through other gens just by bad PR decisions.

  • Looks like all the haters were wrong yet again. No matter how much they want to believe that TLOU Part II looks like a pure PS5 game only, sorry, nope, still a PS4 game. And that goes for the mind blowing Ghost of Tsushima too.

    They weren’t PS5 games only in 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 due for a release in 2022 and they still aren’t in 2020 either.

  • excellent news !!!!

  • is it digital only or both becaus i dont know anymore

  • Thankyou major leak :)

  • Lol. It’s pretty hard to avoid spoilers when you see a story that says “massive spoilers for TLOU2 leak,” click on that story, and then read said story. If you avoid the click and read part, it’s pretty easy though. How do I know this? I’ve somehow been able to avoid spoilers for game, movies, and tv shows.

  • Question if I pre ordered the game ahead of time before the delay for may 29 is last of us 2 still be counted for purchase if its not on shop

  • Thanks but no thanks because of what naughty dog did to the characters. Cancelled all my preorders. Tlou ended with the first game.

  • I wonder if this was in response to the leaks

  • I never got a refund for TLOU2, lol. I also had it spoiled. What a mess. I can’t wait to play it, though. Hats off to Naughty Dog. I love you guys. Your games are beautiful. I can’t say that I love the direction you took with TLOU2, but I respect it. Much love. ✌️♥️

  • Didn’t TLOU2 just launch?

  • So does that mean that anyone that didn’t receive their refund back from PlayStation still have their pre-order or not? Because if not, I have a serious problem.

  • I’m well aware of the leaked footage and I’m glad I didn’t watch anything. Looking forward to playing both of these titles during the Summer.

  • Somehow, after ‘The Last Of Us 2’ Spoiler accident, suddenly global distribution environment is good now??

    Are you joking Sony? lol

    That’s really pathetic.

    • I hate to say it, but you’re right. If the game wasn’t leaked, than no one would be getting this game anytime soon. It’s bananas. BUT I’m still somewhat excited for my collector’s edition ( even after seeing a major leak :( )

  • Im really hoping that tlou2 has mp the first one was addictive as hell especailly when you did private matches against friends me and my friends done like a tournament every week to see who was gonna win so that would be good.im thinking of doing it again in preperation for the 2nd one

  • Another Month for Jin…Alright then

  • Love ya Herman, but thanks for having a game released on my birthday to no longer being the case… =(

  • This is going to be a great summer.

  • I pre ordered it but will it still give the game to me even though it’s not on the PS STORE anymore? I don’t wanna lose my 80$ money’s is tight for me right now and I can’t afford to spend that much money on it again so I hope I’m okay so glad to finally know this is coming soon though😁

  • Thank you. Looking forward to these games. Hopefully things get better for all of us til then and afterwards.
