Neil Druckmann has confirmed that The Last of Us Part II does not meet its original February 21 release. In a post on the PlayStation blog, Druckmann announced the new release date of the game: May 29.
Despite the "blast" announcement during the game state last month, The Last of Us Part II may not be as finished as Naughty Dog originally expected. In his post, Druckmann states: "We realized that we simply did not have enough time to take the whole game to a polishing level that we would call Naughty Dog quality."
This may disappoint many fans, but there is comfort in knowing that the final game is not going to cut any corners.
