Yesterday, European retailer ProGamingShop updated its listing of Cyberpunk 2077 with a release date, and now some eagle-eyed PlayStation fans have noticed that the retailer also has a release date attached to its listing of ] The Last of Us Part II claiming the highly anticipated PlayStation 4 exclusive is releasing September 27, 2019. Now, on the surface level, this date is plausible. It's a Friday, and along with Tuesday, Friday is the most common day for big games to release. Not only has Sony Interactive Entertainment released on Friday in the past, but it also has a hole in its Fall 201
That's all said, while there have been few reports and leaks claiming The Last of Us Part II will release this year, the general consensus is that it will hit in 2020. And given that Naughty Dog is just starting to wrap motion capture work on the game, this is probably a pretty safe bet
There is also the series' history to take into account. The Last of Us was released in June 2013, closer to the launch of the PS4. And this worked out well for Sony. So, why would you change a winning formula? Would not it be wise to plan the development of the game so it releases closer to launching the PS5?
All of this is to say, take this with a grain of salt. Either The Last of Us Part II is releasing sooner than expected, and Sony has already started telling retailers the date, or this listing is a mistake, an estimation of sorts, or just an attempt to get some site traffic
The Last of Us Part II is in development for the PS4 and possibly the PS5.
