The Last of Us Part II and Ghosts of Tsushima are (finally) arriving this summer.
Sony has just announced that the highly anticipated Naughty Dog game The Last of Us Part II will be releasing on June 19th after the initial May 29th release date has been postponed indefinitely due to the coronavirus health crisis. In a blog post, Hermen Hulst, Head of SIE Worldwide Studios said, “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.”
The announcement follows The Last of Us Part II’s recent leak that went viral online. Parts of the game’s cutscenes along with other details were posted on Reddit, which reveals some spoilers about the game’s highly-guarded storyline.

This also prompted Naughty Dog to issue a statement advising users to avoid spoilers and stop sharing with others. “No matter what you see and hear, the final experience will be worth it,” the developers said.
Sony also added that Ghosts of Tsushima will be released on July 17th, which is only a couple of weeks delayed from its original June 26th release date. The action-adventure title is developed by Sucker Punch.
