‘The Last of Us Part 2’ Release Date, Latest News: How True is the Slovakian Retailer Leak?

Yet another release date rumor involving the “The Last of Us Part 2” is making its round on the web, this time the narrative coming from a Slovakian retailer. According to the leak, the sequel will supposedly come out on Sept. 27, 2019, Comicbook reported.

So is there any truth to this claim? Seeing that game retailer leaks don’t usually transition into a reality, it’s best to take this one with a grain of salt. This is especially true since the filming of Troy Baker and Ashley Johnson just recently wrapped up, which means there’s still work to be done for “The Last of Us Part 2.”

This isn’t the first time that a game retailer leaked the release date for the sequel. Just last month, a Peruvian retailer claimed that “The Last of Us Part 2” will be coming this October, which got the fans hyped up. Fast forward several weeks later and Naughty Dog hasn’t confirmed the story. The fact of the matter is that the only people who know when the game will hit the shelves are the team behind its development.

As long as Naughty Dog remains mum about the matter, it’s best to take these supposed “leaks” with skepticism. Having said that, there have been hints out there suggesting that “The Last of Us Part 2” will indeed be coming out this year, with speculations pointing at a late 2019 release.

Composer Gustavo Santaolalla previously made an off-the-cuff comment about the sequel, saying that the title will be coming out very soon. IGN host Alanah Pearce also made a similar statement on Twitter, which she promptly deleted after word got out. To put briefly, Pearce was wondering why “The Last of Us Part 2” wasn’t included in the most anticipated titles coming out this year. After several people pointed out that Naughty Dog hasn’t announced anything yet, Pearce had this to say:

“Yeah if you can’t find anything official [about ‘The Last of Us Part 2’] then it’s just my brain firmly remembering something and assuming it was public. A genuinely difficult part of games media is remembering what you are and aren’t allowed to know, and when,” the host tweeted.

So when can we expect “The Last of Us Part 2” to come out? Well, a 2020 release date is still the safest bet at the moment given the actors’ filming just recently finished. And this should be fine. Keep in mind that a delayed game is only temporary but a rush game will be permanent. If Naughty Dog needs more time to polish the game, then it’s best to let them do their job. After all, it would be a shame if the game comes out with a lot of issues, similar to other titles that have been rushed in the past.
