Sony announced updates for The Last of Us 2 release date and the Ghost of Tsushima release date. TLOU2 will now launch June 19, while Ghost of Tsushima‘s new release date is July 17.
The news comes from a new PlayStation Blog post from earlier today.
It follows Naughty Dog’s long-awaited sequel being delayed indefinitely last month, with the developer citing distribution concerns as the reason. It initially seemed the delay might be much longer, seeing as Sony also started issuing refunds for TLOU2 digital purchases.
Ghost of Tsushima was originally planned for a June 26 release date. Given the current delay environment, many speculated we’d hear about a Ghost of Tsushima delay sooner or later.
Hermen Hulst, head of Sony Worldwide Studios, reminded readers how difficult finishing any product is for developers, saying:
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.
The original post is over on the PlayStation Blog.
