I was kind of hoping this was going to happen but to be honest I’m not surprised. Kotaku reported earlier today that The Last of Us Part II will be delayed indefinitely due to the state-mandated social distancing order. I have a theory that they just want to see how the real-life pandemic plays out for story material.
While certain games aren’t delayed and are releasing really, really soon, *cough*ResidentEvil3*cough*FFVII*cough* it seems that The Last of Us Part II wasn’t far along enough in the pipeline to avoid this. The game is “nearly done” but was delayed mostly for logistical reasons. Hopefully, this will be the end of their crunch. Please, Naughty Dog, no more.
