A new The Last of Us 2 release date has been revealed by Sony just a short while after massive story spoilers have hit the Internet. Additionally, the Ghosts of Tsushima release date has also been revealed, squashing the rumors that it would come out as late as August.
First, an important PSA: If you haven't been keeping up with The Last of Us 2, it's a very good idea to ignore your social media feeds for the game. Some seriously big story spoilers have popped up on the Internet and they're getting shared pretty heavily.
It gets even worse — the /r/thelastofus subreddit has temporarily closed things down and they've warned that some nefarious people are going as far as to send Reddit PMs to people with spoilers. If you've participated in that community (or signaled your interest in The Last of Us 2 in any way), it's probably a very good idea to turn off your PMs. You can read about how to do that at this Reddit submission.
When is the New The Last Of Us 2 Release Date?
Spoilers aside, fans are surely happy to hear that they won't have to wait too much longer following the game's most recent delay due to "shipping difficulties."
As noted in this PlayStation Blog post, the new The Last of Us 2 release date is now June 19, 2020. While the slightly longer wait is certainly disappointing — especially in light of the myriad of spoilers floating around the Internet — it seems that players won't be waiting until the end of the year as some had feared!
When is the Ghost of Tsushima Release Date?
That same PlayStation Blog post also reveals the Ghost of Tsushima release date. You'll be able to enjoy that samurai-turned-ninja action a little more than a month later; it's all set to launch on July 17, 2020.
In the meantime, the best thing you can do is dodge spoilers left and right. If you're one of the few who does know what's going on with The Last of Us 2's story, please be considerate and don't ruin it for anyone else.
