‘The Last of Us Part 2’ Release Date: Sequel Rumored to Come out in February 2020; How Likely Is It?

The hype surrounding the “The Last of Us Part 2” still hasn’t died down even though it made no appearance during this year’s E3. As can be expected, one of the most talked about aspect of the sequel is when is it going to come out.

Last month, renowned gaming journalist Jason Schreier said that it’s highly unlikely that “The Last of Us Part 2” will come out this year given that “Death Stranding” will be hitting the shelves on Nov. 8. This pushed the narrative to a 2020 timeline, with Schreier suggesting that it may come out in February.

Now, Ashley Johnson – the voice actor of Ellie – has supposedly let slip that February is indeed the release date of “The Last of Us Part 2.” In an interview with Critical Role creative producer Brian Foster, the host asked Johnson for hints when the sequel is coming out. She then started to say February but cut herself short and only got to “feh.” You can watch the exchange here.

It’s unclear whether this is a genuine gaffe on Johnson’s part or she was simply goofing around. She is being interviewed by her fiancé, after all. But it is quite curious that she would mouth off that specific month following Schreier’s tweet. Adding fuel to the fire is game analyst Daniel Ahmad who wrote on a Resetera thread that February is indeed the internal release date for “The Last of Us Part 2.”

So does this mean that the title will come out in early 2020? Not quite. Co-game director Anthony Newman tweeted last month that there’s still work to be done on “The Last of Us Part 2.” Newman said that they need talented people who will help them finish close the game. And since Naughty Dog itself has yet to announce anything, it’s best to be skeptical for now. Of course, many are hoping that this claim is true on account that they’ve been waiting more than six years for the sequel to come out.
