The Last of Us Part II has disappeared from the PlayStation Store.
The Last of Us Part II was delayed indefinitely last week. Now, the game can no longer be found on the PlayStation Store. After a quick search on the store front, it was found that Naughty Dog's upcoming sequel is no where to be found. There is also no longer a way to pre-order the game. The same goes for Iron Man VR, which was also delayed last week due to difficulties surrounding COVID-19. The PlayStation Store also has a message for those who had already pre-ordered the game before the delay:
"The Last of Us Part II and Iron Man VR have been delayed. All digital pre-order consumers will automatically receive a refund. Please check your email for more details."
It was announced that The Last of Us Part II was to be postponed indefinitely last week. The news was announced on Twitter, with Naughty Dog confirming the delay on their blog. According to the developer, the delay was "due to logistics beyond our control." They stated that they want all gamers to experience the title at the same time, as they do everything possible to preserve the best experience for everyone. The developer finishes by stating that they will provide an update as soon as they have information to share.
Along with The Last of Us Part II, an HBO adaptation of the series was also in the works. The show is being led by Craig Mazin, who is known for working on the Chernobyl series. Neil Druckmann, who wrote and co-produced The Last of Us, was set to write and executive produce the series. It is unknown if the show will also be affected by COVID-19.
The Last of Us Part II is set to release for the PlayStation 4 sometime in the future. The game was originally meant to release on May 29th.
