PlayStation confirms The Last of Us Part II and Ghost of Tsushima release dates

As a result of COVID-19 affecting the status of the world, many previously announced titles had their release dates pushed back. Including Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us Part II, which tells the story of a world that was heavily impacted by a pandemic no less. However, as of today, PlayStation has confirmed new release dates for both The Last of Us Part II and Ghost of Tsushima 

The often delayed The Last of Us Part II will arrive this June 19, 2020, followed by Ghost of Tsushima one month later, on July 17, 2020, which was originally slated for a May 2020 release. That gives you one month to finish up one masterpiece and to get ready for yet another one.

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.

I can only imagine the logistics nightmare on PlayStation’s end for all of this, but thankfully the light at the end of the tunnel is getting brighter. As for all my gaming friends and readers, we’re almost there, it’s not too much longer.

I also know when my vacation from work is going to start now. Thanks, PlayStation!
