It looks like The Last of Us Part 2 is about to be finished and might be released sooner, than expected. But still, the Naughty Dog doesn’t give us any hints about when the launch lands.
Final Stage & Assumable Lauch Date
Anthony Newman, the Lead Game Designer at Naughty Dog, tweeted that the studio needs more staff like animators and programmers to finish the final stage and polish the game. They have recently done capturing the motion on The Last of Us Part II, we probably can hope that game will be launched in November 2019, since the last Naughty Dog’s release has happened 7 months after they’ve finished wrapping its final motion capture. Speaking of set date revealing, unfortunately Sony will not hold a conference at E3 2019 this year which would be a good chance to finally give us that information.
The first announce of the game was in 2016 on PlayStation Experience event in a form of short trailer showing older versions of Ellie and Joel. The gap between the first and the second parts is five years during which the mysterious cult was formed on the infected land. The second and the third demonstrations have happened on the 2017 Paris Games Week even and during Sony’s conference at E3 2018.
There are more games on PlayStation 4 platform that can be released in a year time, but don’t have its launch date set. Probably Sony is saving some information for the PlayStation Experience event that might be brought back after skipping one year.
The Last of Us Part 2 release is highly expected by the prequel fans, we hope developers’ teasing tweets are related to the soon release.
That’s all for now, you can satisfy your appetite a litlle watching the gameplay trailer below.
