New PS4 release dates confirmed for The Last of Us Part II and Ghost of Tsushima

90 0

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 19th June. And Ghost of Tsushima will follow on 17th July.
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.

  • Very fast response to the leaks!

  • I’m beat the crud outta anyone who tries to spoil these for me. Last AAA game I was actually hyped enough to buy was Spider-Man and that was Sept 2018 so I been waiting a while y’see. Ain’t been much else for me. So I ain’t gonna be tolerant of idiots trying to ruin my fun here.

  • what about ps5 :D

  • I’m happy it comes out in June, but I’d prefer to see it in November as PS5 edition. Might wait for that ;)

    • Don’t get me wrong I’d would love to wait and play The Last Of Us 2 on PS5 in late Autumn instead of the heat of Summer on PS4. But I’m not going to risk the story, for better graphics.

      It’s impossible to avoid spoilers for 6 months, especially for this game. The amount of attention this game will receive worldwide will be off the charts.

    • Remember PS5 backwards compatible Won’t be like Ps3 to PS4 last of us will probably just get a patch for better graphics etc so there probably won’t be a ps5 edition

    • The PS4 version will simply be patched to take advantage of PS5 capabilities.

    • That’s what you all wish for. Was never officially announced which games will be backwards compatible. I’m thinking PS5 edition for another 60 euro in Nov unfortunately, but hopefully no ;)

    • @Ti_dus Pretty much all games are backwards compatible. They just said they tested the top 100, which a lot of people misinterpreted as only 100 games being compatible. TLOU2 will definitely work, no doubt.

    • @Ti_dus

      Trust me The Last Of Us Part 2 will be backwards compatible with the PS5 on Day One. There is no way Sony will charge £50.00 again within six months. Consoles have changed, no need to release remastered editions no more. All it takes now, is a simple patch.

    • If you can make the wait go for it! I will not be waiting, I will be playing this in June

    • Did you forget ps4 games compatible with the ps5?

  • The games story looks atrocious, this is bad.

    • nobody asked! No developer set out to make a bad game or a bad story. If you are not convinced do not buy, but to ruining other people experience :)

    • Ok little xbox troll :)

    • stop talking crap , you have not played the game , what gives you the rights to moan .. IDIOT

    • Xbox troll? Ive been playing playstation longer than you boy.

    • I’m not going to buy it, its literally a mess.

    • Ive seen over 25 minutes of key scenes, its not good.

    • You have seen 25mins of 18hr+ game I’ve seen the leaks and to be honest makes me more excited for the game…you are just trolling last of us is adult game not ment for kids

    • @Bauer007

      Do NOT mention the story or spoilers.

    • Then don’t buy it. Jesus christ i get brain damage reading these comments.

      “wuah wuah i m a little child and i can’t handle not looking at spoilers wuah wuah”

    • Pretty sure no one cares about your opinion of the game. It’s gonna be a massive success no matter how much your negative self wants it to fail

    • You’ve seen 25+ minutes of key scenes, huh? Yeah, sounds like you are trolling.

    • This isn’t some weird homophobia thing is it?

    • Harrisown

      Lol I’m wondering the same. I’m trying to think what could possibly get people on the Internet so riled up and that’s all I can think of

    • Well it is a “zombie” game. Does people really play these for deep original stories anyway?

    • It’s a Sony game, does anyone play those for deep story lines?

      They’re all just a bunch of grey scenes using the same few blatantly obvious lazy plot devices and emotional elements.

      All delivered by croaky slow voice actors in love with their own voices and long pauses.

    • Yeah, it looks really bad. It is going to end up on ps+ sooner or later so I wasn’t going to buy it anyway. I learned my lesson with the 5 other Naughty Dog games we got in the last few months that I had already bought but had not had the time to get to.

    • Yes, it looks bad. And it will definitely be on PS plus eventually.

  • Too late Sony last of us part 2 spoilers are out there know. You can blame naughty dog for that and staff member. Should realse it know or next week because a lot people read spoilers.

  • We have already seen the game. You deleted my comment. No point in hiding it. Watch out people, they are deleting comments.

    • If your comment had spoilers, then they did nothing wrong.

    • They have deleted my comment about the game inevitably ending up on PS plus because we’ve had five games by the same studio on there in the last few months.

  • No bugs or glitches please.

  • After those leaks I cancelled my collectors edition pre-order of TLoU2. I’m sure the actual gameplay will be fine but the story just seems unnecessary and not for me :( hope people still enjoy it at least.

    • you are so sad person , gaming does not need u .

    • Why would you look at spoilers for a game you pre-ordered and presumably are excited for?

    • There was some images that were put on Twitter, unfortunately my own curiosity got the better of me this time and I dug a bit deeper.

      I was hoping it’d “hype” me up a bit more as I didn’t think the original needed a direct sequel but i enjoyed U4 a fair bit so I pre-ordered giving it the benefit of the doubt.

    • bro the reason people are upset is not that they are being spoilt. they are upset by what’s in the spoilers. the spoilers are actually being spread like wildwife by Sony fans themselves because they are angry.

    • @gaara_kage

      Who cares who’s annoyed and who isn’t. Let people make up their own minds. People should be allowed to find things out on their own rather than some guy on the Internet having a tantrum because he was dumb enough to read about the story and didn’t like it. What is wrong with people

    • Ischiasal what was even that dude? Respect orher people opinion, truth to be told game sounds very lame and disapointing… It is very sad to know that since tlou was One of my favourites…

    • I learned my lesson from the FIVE Naughty Dog games realeased on ps+ in the last few months anyway.

    • I cancelled my Pre order too, the gameplay looks amazing no doubt but the story has be so bastardised Ill more than likely not even play it at all from seeing the leaks

  • PS4 Jet Engines Ready!

  • Live Test Submission

  • calculate possible losses from logistics problem due to virus

    calculate possible losses from this leaks

    bring back old release date + this 20 days of unknown

    please find and tear apart this enemy of mankind.

  • PS4 will end with quite a send off with two big games like this althought i am happy i will play them, i am sad knowing that PS4 is coming to an end of its life cycle, no more exclusive games, E3 show anouncments etc. The games will come out for the system sure but once we get our hands on this two games that’s it no more PS4 exclusives the focus is on next gen.. It will be sad day knowing PS4 days are over and that this time next year it will be old console but also i had the best gaming experience of my life on PS4, explored amazing worlds, played throught some amazing story’s and i just loved it..

  • Another Live Test Submission

  • My girlfriend had it preordered to give me as a gift for my birthday on May 30th. That pre order has since been cancelled. I’ll get a different game for my birthday now. Probably just pick this up on PS5 or when it’s on Plus instead.

  • Great news. Only a one month delay. I can live with that.

    Any news on Iron Man VR’s new release date?

  • I loved the first game but I’m skipping this.

  • I think nearly all PS5 Exclusives will start using the Decima Engine, that engine is truly fantastic.

    I hope to see these future PS5 games take advantage of Decima.

    1. The Order 1886 sequel ?

    2. Horizon Zero Dawn 2 ?

    3. Days Gone 2 ?

    4. Hideo Kojimas next game ?

    5. Spider Man 2 ?

    • The people would have to redo the entire game coding just to move to a different engine (that very few have experience with) for no actual benefit. So it’s unlikely.

      Also, the engine isn’t exactly better than other engines and has several issues, like the noticeable distance popup, and things like really bad facial animation/weird physics (though DS didn’t suffer so badly).

  • So looking forward to Ghost of Tsushima

  • How about doing a whole new The Last of Us 2 on PS5 now that it has been completely leaked on PS4?

  • Ehh! So what was the point of Sony cancelling the digital preorders when it has only been further delayed by a few weeks? Was it in the hope that we would spend the money on something else then fork out again for the pre-order?

  • Leak is sad but i will get this no matter what. Despite all the cloud of uncertainty, have to support the series ! I am against crunch or exploitation, i will stand by DEVs hard work and contribute with my little fund i spend on it.

  • Finally good news for the last of us 2 can’t wait for 19 of June

  • Why delaying Ghost of Tsushima? Just to fix the leaking of the “I don’t give a rat’s furry ass about TLOU”?

  • Let’s make it clear.

    When you buy The Last Of Us Part 2 on PS4, it will be playable on PS5 on Day One.

    The PS4 version will take advantage of PS5 capabilities with a simple patch.

    The PS5 version will likely have exclusive content for PS5, like co-op multiplayer. And have its own edition at launch. But no need to buy the game again if you already own it on PS4.

    I would love to wait and play The Last Of Us Part 2 on a quiet PS5 in Nov/Dec time when the weather is cooler. It will certainly beat the experience playing for the first time on a noisy PS4 at the start of Summer.

    However I can’t take that gamble and wait for the PS5. Its impossible to avoid spoilers for six months, the story is to important to risk in favour of graphics.

  • Trials Of Mana is the last console game I plan on buying. Not getting any new consoles. Will just stick to PC in the future

  • The Last Of Us Part 2 PS4 Summer Release = ?????

    The Last Of Us Part 2 PS5 Autumn Release =❄️?????

  • Please someone says to me that delays are not true , cuz I’m so sad I’ve been waiting for years than you ruin my fun , please give me hope or something you understand

  • That’s actually quite sooner than I’d expected, given the circumstances. Can’t wait for either of them!

  • I hope it stays that way. Im still upset that the last of us part 2 is not gonna be may 29th. Its been a very long time that these release dates keep changing everytime. I enjoyed playing the first last of us and I really looking forward to play part 2.

  • I’d like to take this time to personally thank Naughty Dog for coming out with a sequel in just a shade under a decade and cutting half the game. *Slow clap*

  • Don’t read the comments. We never know who’s gonna post a spoiler. IRON MAN DIES!

  • Hmm my best console better than Xbox.but the problem is psplus i can’t get psplus because my country not supported to ps4…than i can’t use debit or credit my country sri lanka

  • Ghost of Tsushima is going to release on my Birthday!!! ??

  • Guys, I won’t spoil the game but please don’t waste your money on this. All wokeness aside, the story is a complete mess. This will probably be deleted, but if you read this, save your money for a better game like Ghosts of Tsushima.

  • I’m so excited for Ghost of Tsushima

  • Probably another delay before June…again…

  • I highly doubt anyone from Naughty dog reads these blogs, but my heart goes out to them.

    Years of work needlessly thrown out onto the internet because an employee with an axe to grind decides not only was the company not worth their respect, but neither was any fan of TLOU by posting the story online.

    I seriously hope who ever it was never works in the games industry again.

    I refuse to read or watch anything concerning the leaks, but I can only imagine many couldn’t help themselves and have ruined the experience for themselves.

    I look forward to not only playing TLOU P2 in June, but can’t wait to get hands on with Ghost of Tsushima too.

  • So where do stand as Sony has now refunded pre-orders and store as of 28 Apr 2020 does not have The Last of Us 2 to re-order…

  • I already preordered TLOU 2 again and can’t wait to play it. And yes, I read the leaks.

  • Why are ppl angry I just don’t look to spoilers I just wait and play if it comes if it’s bad so be it but ppl that are angry cuss of spoilers even if they are bad it Wil make other ppl feel bad to just stay silent about it and refund your pay if you don’t like it
