Another Potential Release Date For The Last Of Us Part II?

Comicbook discovered another potential release date for Naughty Dog‘s game.

The Last of Us Part II, which was revealed at the 2016 PlayStation Experience, was shown several times since, but no release date has ever been announced nor by Naughty Dog, neither by Sony Interactive Entertainment. Now, a Slovakian website, Pro Gaming Shop, tries to gain more clicks for itself, as they believe The Last of Us Part II will launch on September 27.

While it does fall on a Friday, following what the other PlayStation 4-exclusive titles (God of War, Spider-Man, or Days Gone on April 26) tend to do, we can easily debunk this date. First of all, Neil Druckmann, the game’s director and co-writer, revealed on Twitter that they just finished the motion capture work for the last scene of The Last of Us Part II last week. It means that time needed so the game can get all the mocap work implemented. Also, there’s the box art. What is this? Are you sure? We’re doubting it.

So don’t really bet your money for September. October, or especially November (which we might have written about in the past…) looks more realistic for the release date window, and September – unless Naughty Dog immediately implements the motion capture into the game after the scenes were shot – looks far too early.

It’s very likely that the PlayStation 4-exclusive The Last of Us Part II launches this year, but we don’t know when exactly it will hit the shelves, though.
