The Last of Us Part 2 and Iron Man VR Have Been Delayed Indefinitely

"Logistically, the global crisis is preventing us from providing the launch experience our players deserve."

The COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic has already led to delays for a few high-profile titles, but none that loom as large as The Last of Us Part 2. Having already been delayed once from February to May for extra polish, Sony has just announced that both it and Camouflaj's Marvel's Iron Man VR are delayed "until further notice."

On its website, Naughty Dog released a new statement regarding the indefinite delay for The Last of Us Part 2. "We're sure this news is just as disappointing to you as it is to us," it reads. "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 2. We are in the midst of fixing our final bugs. [...] due to logistics beyond our control, we couldn't launch The Last of Us Part 2 to our satisfaction. We want to make sure everyone gets to play The Last of Us Part 2 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."

USgamer has reached out to Sony for additional comment.
