The Last of Us Part II Gets a Batch of New Screenshots Following Delay

Naughty Dog released a batch of new screenshots for The Last of Us Part II today following the announcement that the game has been delayed indefinitely due to COVID-19.

If you’re looking to go into the game completely blind, you may want to avoid the new screenshots as they show off previously unseen areas and potentially a new character that Naughty Dog hasn’t revealed in any other media for the game yet.

Sony and Naughty Dog anticipate the revised release date won’t be too far off from the originally planned release of May 29, but they made no promises in their statement.

The Last of Us Part II and Marvel’s Iron Man VR are the first of many anticipated delays for upcoming games this year as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to grow.
