Iron Man VR too

The inevitable has finally happened. Amidst everyone working from home and having drastically changing workflows, PlayStation and Naughty Dog have been forced to delay The Last of Us Part II again.

PlayStation announced the setback in no time to tweet this afternoon. It says "[Sony Interactive Entertainment] has made the difficult decision to delay the launch of The Last of Us Part II and Marvel's Iron Man VR until further Fallen. Logistically, the global crisis prevents us from delivering the experience of launch that our players deserve.”

The Last of Us Part II was finally set to launch on May 29. It's been delayed often - first unofficially as Naughty Dog missed its 2022 target and pushed the game into 2022, then officially as it was delayed from February to May. . As PlayStation mentions, there is no new release date to look forward to. Given the uncertainty of everything at the moment, it is quite difficult to predict the timelines for the completion of projects.

However, there is something of a silver lining. PlayStation also says it has no more delays aside from The Last of Us Part II and Marvel's Iron Man VR.

[Update: Naughty Dog also released the following statement where the developer says: the game is almost done but they are working on final bug fixes; the COVID-19 pandemic makes it logistically difficult to launch the game almost simultaneously across the globe, and he wants to be able to do that; and that the studio hopes this delay will not be long.]
