‘The Last of Us 2’ release date, pre-orders
Sony had to temporarily stop accepting pre-orders when it decided to cancel the game’s May 29 launch as COVID-19 made it logistically impossible. But the company appears to have remedied that, and “The Last of Us 2” is finally set to go live on Friday, June 19 exclusively on PlayStation 4.
Pre-orders for both digital and physical copies have also been reopened. Players can also buy “The Last of Us 2” discs on launch day from authorized retail stores. However, the global COVID-19 pandemic might not make this option available to some regions. Luckily, fans can know beforehand if the nearest gaming store will be selling physical copies of the action-adventure.

Those using VPN might want to briefly disable it so the website could provide accurate results. The Standard Edition costs $60, while special bundles that include exclusive and limited-edition collectibles can go up to $230.
