‘The Last of Us Part 2’ Release Date, Latest News, Update: Sequel to Come Out in 2019, Latest Rumor Suggests
As the information drought surrounding “The Last of Us Part 2” persists, fans of the franchise have been scrounging the web for details about the upcoming apocalyptic shooter. The latest rumor that has sprouted this week involves the release date of the sequel.
According to the Reddit post by user fetemucke, “The Last of Us Part 2” could come out in the last quarter of 2019. The speculation is rooted in the image provided by fetemucke where it showed that the game has been listed in the “coming soon” section of the U.S., U.K., Germany, and Italy PSN Store. Other games included in the list are “Control,” “Days Gone,” and “Concrete Genie” – all of which are set to come out this year.
Of course, since Naughty Dog hasn’t officially announced anything yet, it’s best to remain skeptical about this matter. However, the speculation does go in line with the other rumor that came out last month claiming that the “The Last of Us Part 2” will be hitting the shelves this coming October.
That rumor came from a Peruvian game retailer called LawGamers. A promotional photo for “The Last of Us Part 2” has been released by the retailer where a text at the bottom of the image read “Launching: October 2019.” Combined this with the previous off the cuff statement by composer Gustavo Santaolalla that the game is “coming soon” and the possibility increases further. Then there’s also the previous statement of IGN host Alanah Pearce to consider.
As for why Naughty Dog isn’t heavily promoting “The Last of Us Part 2,” it’s being speculated that they don’t want to overhype it too much as it may take away the other buzz from PlayStation’s other upcoming titles. Indeed, even if the studio opted to simply drop the game without announcement, the word of mouth alone will be enough marketing for the sequel.
The hype surrounding the game is understandable given that its predecessor is considered one of the best games to ever hit the gaming community. Perhaps the only title that can match – or even surpass – the massive anticipation involving “The Last of Us Part 2” is “Cyberpunk 2077.”
