When is The Last of Us 2 releasing? Well, this is a million dollar question, isn’t it? The Last of Us 2 was announced two years ago at PlayStation Experience and since then we have seen very little of it. And since we have seen very little of it, it is hard to imagine is releasing anytime soon. However, a highly credible source, a former IGN editor, has revealed that the game is coming out in 2019.
It all started when PlayStation posted a video for upcoming 2019 games. The video titled “Upcoming 2019 Attractions” featured not only The Last of Us 2 but Ghost of Tsushima and Death Stranding as well. This isn’t the first time PlayStation has posted such videos and every time it did, the company claimed it was a mistake to include some of the games in the videos.
Speculations soon started to make rounds over the internet about the release of Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us 2. Naughty Dog is yet to announce anything related to the release date of the game but, a former IGN editor posted about it on social media. Soon after PlayStation’s 2019 games video went live one of the Twitter users asked her about it.
Alanah Pearce stated that The Last of Us 2 is “100%” confirmed for 2019. The game is releasing this year on PS4 and PS4 Pro. If this is indeed true, we can expect an announcement in the coming weeks with a possible release window of Fall 2019. Sony normally shares its AAA release plans at E3, however, the company is skipping this year’s event.
Previously, Amazon also confirmed The Last of Us 2 for 2019. According to a recent listing, the game would release before Summer 2019. We will have to wait and see what becomes to these leaks.
