Release Date Updates For The Last of Us Part II, Ghost of Tsushima
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.
《The Last of Us Part II》推出再受阻 因疫情無奈宣布無限延期
Sony 與 Naughty Dog 今日共同宣布，原訂五月發售的《最後生還者：第II章》（The Last of Us Part II）將會再次延期到官方正式發售日為止，意即進入無限期延期。
根據 PlayStation 官推表示，SIE 做出艱難決定，將《最後生還者：二部曲》與《漫威鋼鐵人 VR》（Marvel’s Iron Man VR）發售推遲，直到另行通知，影響來自於全球面對的疫情衝擊，無法提供玩家發售時的遊戲體驗。而隨後 Naughty Dog 聲明中表示，好消息是遊戲已經進入最後收尾階段，修復了許多最終的 bug 問題，但即使是開發告捷，但是在全球發行通路受影響的情況下，沒辦法確認玩家同步都能玩到遊戲。

Naughty Dog 表示不滿意延期決定，但也理解到這是對玩家最公平的決策，未來有新資訊隨時將與玩家分享，最後希望玩家的家人以及好友都能在這波疫情下保持健康，感謝粉絲持續的支持。《最後生還者：二部曲》因為疫情問題也還無法在公開場合展示實機遊玩，因此官方改以釋出 PS4 Pro 運算下的遊戲畫面讓玩家先行一睹。

The Last of Us 2 leaked gameplay footage spoils full story [UPDATED]
The Last of Us 2 leaked gameplay footage spoils full story [UPDATED] It should go without saying: Spoiler warning ahead for The Last of Us 2 as a number of lengthy videos of unseen gameplay footage from the game were recently leaked.
Updated (4/27/2020 - 11:02AM PT): The videos that were originally posted in the thread on r/Games subreddit have since been taken down.
Original Story: Some things just can’t stay a secret. It looks like recently, a large portion of unseen The Last of Us 2 gameplay footage was leaked online. Originally put up on YouTube, viewers have since spread it elsewhere. The footage contains large portions of story from the game including Joel and Ellie’s reunion, more of Ellie’s relationship with Dina, and other unseen previously unseen parts of the game. It goes without saying, there are spoilers ahead.
The footage was apparently discovered on YouTube late on April 26, 2020, which has since been taken down. However, viewers grabbed the swath of videos and uploaded them elsewhere, such as Twitter and the r/Games subreddit. Allegedly, the leaks came from a dev build of the game which likely implies that someone working on or closely with the game put the videos up before they were taken offline. However, by then the damage had already been done and they’ve been spreading since. The videos show a lot having to do with late game events around Joel, Ellie, and Ellie’s lover, Dina.
The Last of Us 2 leaked gameplay footage videos show off a lot of major story points with major characters Joel, Ellie, and Dina.
It’s unfortunate to say the least. The Last of Us Part 2 had suffered a number of delays that pushed it from the possibility of a hinted February 2020 release, to a confirmed, yet delayed May 2020 release, to delayed indefinitely due to logistical issues with the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic. That’s in addition to crunch and other work-related issues Naughty Dog has apparently had with the game, as reported by Kotaku. With this recent Last of Us 2 leaked gameplay footage, it’s another hit to the game for sure. Even so, The Last of Us 2 remains one of the most anticipated games of 2020.
It’s safe to say that if you don’t want to see the spoilers, it might be good to steer clear of The Last of Us 2 for a bit as we await further information such as a new release date for the game. Otherwise, if you’re curious, the videos can be found in the Reddit link posted above.
