Sony has today begun to issue refunds for digital purchases of both The Last of Us Part 2 and Iron Man VR. This follows on from both titles being indefinitely delayed earlier this month, due to the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak.
Over on the Sony support website, a notice has emerged about all digital purchases of both games being immediately refunded. "All digital pre-order customers will automatically receive a refund," a banner at the top of the Sony support website reads. "Please check your emails for more details."
This comes just a few days removed from both titles being delayed, which was originally announced by Sony last week. Iron Man VR was originally slated to launch on May 15, and Naughty Dog's The Last of Us Part 2 was meant to launch two weeks after that, on May 29. The latter title has already been delayed once, moved out of launching in February for May instead.
As of right now, there's absolutely no word on when either game will be releasing, hence Sony's decision to refund all digital purchases. Additionally, both titles have been removed from the PSN Store, so you can no longer pre-order either of them digitally.
Late last week, Naughty Dog director Neil Druckmann spoke briefly on Sony's PlayStation Blog Podcast about the current state of The Last of Us Part 2. Druckmann's comments would seem to indicate that the game is practically complete, but the COVID-19 virus has forced Sony to postpone the launch of the sequel regardless.
