    Initially planned for a February 2020 release, the highly anticipated title from Naughty Dog, The Last of Us Part II, has been pushed back a few months. Neil Druckmann, the game's director, made the official announcement via a post on PlayStation Blog today.

    "It was during the last few weeks, as we were closing out sections of the game, that we realized we simply didn’t have enough time to bring the entire game up to a level of polish we would call Naughty Dog quality," writes Druckmann. "At this point we were faced with two options: compromise parts of the game or get more time. We went with the latter, and this new release date allows us to finish everything to our level of satisfaction while also reducing stress on the team."

    The new release date for The Last of Us Part II is May 29, 2020. You can read Neil Druckmann's full blog post in the source below.

    Probably trying to figure out the lighting of the hair of certain characters in certain scenes again, so they're properly "represented". So woke.

    As long as they are going to released in early 2020 not the latest holiday 2020 then that's fine. Can't wait!

    It's not a Sony first-party title if it doesn't get at least one delay.

    Doesn't bother me. You know how the saying goes. . . Still a day one buy.

    I do admire that the saying is now generally the consensus, that's one good thing out of these kinds of things.

    While it isn't as big as a crazy occurrence, a delay to a game as critically acclaimed as the first one is in no way not worthy...

    If a dev team has released 10 or so games, you'd think they'd already properly do project estimates from their baseline estimates. It's so rare for teams to release/complete a game a few months earlier than their planned release.
