Here’s some major disappointing news for PlayStation fans as Sony has confirmed that both The Last of Us Part II and Marvel’s Iron Man VR have been delayed indefinitely. Thiswas  is not the first time both games have been delayed with The Last of Us Part II originally slated to release February 21st, and Marvel’s Iron Man VR was pushed back from its February 28th release date. The Last of Us Part II was going to release on May 29th and Marvel’s Iron Man VR was due on May 15th.

The news came via the PlayStation Twitter account.

The Tweet reads:

Update: SIE has made the difficult decision to delay the launch of The Last of Us Part II and Marvel’s Iron Man VR until further notice. Logistically, the global crisis is preventing us from providing the launch experience our players deserve.

Naughty Dog released its own statement regarding the delay of The Last of Us Part II.

As you’ve likely just seen, the release of The Last of Us Part II has been delayed. We’re sure this news is just as disappointing to you as it is to us. We wanted to reach out to all of you in our community to give you a little more information.

The good news is, we’re nearly done with development of The Last of Us Part II. We are in the midst of fixing our final bugs.

However, even with us finishing the game, we were faced with the reality that due to logistics beyond our control, we couldn’t launch The Last of Us Part II to our satisfaction. We want to make sure everyone gets to play The Last of Us Part II around the same time, ensuring that we’re doing everything possible to preserve the best experience for everyone. This meant delaying the game until such a time where we can solve these logistic issues.

We were bummed about this decision but ultimately understood it’s what’s best and fair to all of our players. We’re hoping that this won’t be a long delay and we’ll update you as soon as we have new information to share.

We wish you all, your families, and your friends the best of health. Thank you for being amazing fans and your continued support.

Stay safe!

– Naughty Dog

From the heady days of the Mega Drive up until the modern day gaming has been my main hobby. I'll give almost any game a go.


  1. They can’t release it digitally to start with?

    • They want everyone to play at the same time.

      • That’s exactly what a digital release would ensure happens.

  2. I wouldn’t be surprised if it was also deemed potentially less appropriate to release the game while the pandemic is at the forefront of everyone’s mind, like that Motorstorm game with the earthquakes was delayed.
