Sony Sending Refunds for Digital Last of Us 2, Iron Man VR Orders

The refunds are in response to TLoU2 and Iron Man VR's indefinite delays.

Sony announced it's issuing automatic refunds for digital copies of The Last of Us Part 2 and Iron Man VR. The announcement follows last week's news that both games are delayed indefinitely on account of coronavirus-related shipping issues.

The news was originally posted on Sony's Support web page as a small banner, and IGN picked up the story. If you pre-ordered either title's digital version, you should be receiving an email from Sony with further information. We reached out to Sony for more information on when emails and refunds would begin going out, but we did not hear back by press time.  

Both games were set for May launches: May 29 for The Last of Us Part 2 and May 15 for Iron Man VR. As you'd expect, that means both games are also pretty much finished.

Naughty Dog's Neil Druckmann said TLoU2 is "at the one-yard line" during a recent PlayStation Blogcast episode. However, the studio isn't considering a digital-only release at this time, since it wants everyone to experience the long-awaited next chapter in Elie's journey at the same time.

It's been a long journey for TLoU2 as well. It was first delayed to February and then to May so the team could give it "extra polish."

How this will affect The Last of Us TV series HBO and Naughty Dog are working on together, we don't know. Previously, the show's director Craig Mazin said filming can't start until TLoU2 is finished.

The original story is over on IGN. Stay tuned to GameSkinny for more The Last of Us Part 2 and Iron Man VR news as it develops.

You'll usually find him playing RPGs, strategy games, or platformers, but he's up for almost anything that seems interesting.
