Rumor has it that The Last of Us Part II will be coming out later this year. According to an online retailer, we may already have our hands on The Last of Us 2 release date.
When is The Last of Us 2 coming out?
On April 20, European retailer ProGamingShop added a release date to their Cyberpunk 2077 listing. Eager fans have now also spotted that a Last of Us Part 2 release date has been added. Interestingly, this PS4 exclusive is detailed as September 27, 2019.
There are a number of reasons as to why this leak may have some legitimacy. For a start, Naughty Dog’s Neil Druckmann has already confirmed that The Last of Us 2 has wrapped up its final scene. Since this was confirmed, an earlier release date was expected than the previously predicted late 2019 release.
September 27 falls on a Friday this year, and this is a day that new games are usually released. Sony have also released new games on Friday in the past. Furthermore, Sony currently have no big releases for their Fall 2019 release schedule. This would certainly fill the void.
Alternatively, The Last of Us was released closer to the launch of the PS4 which brought great success. With a PS5 release date being ruled out for this year, a September 27 release may seem strange to some.
It’s important to bear in mind that this could be a placeholder date. ProGamingShop have also added a release date to their Cyberpunk 2077 listing as November 28. This seems far fetched also and doesn’t make The Last of Us 2 release date leak of September 27 sound promising.
While this hasn’t been confirmed, we advise all fans to remain highly skeptical. Prior to getting your hopes up, please await Naughty Dog’s confirmation.
With the recent PS5 pastebin post that has surfaced, the earliest possible PS5 release date appears to be March 2020. We’d expect The Last of Us Part 2 to be released closer to this time. We can also bear in mind that even though the final scene has been filmed, it can still be some time until the official game is released.
