It’s long been rumored The Last of Us Part II will release February 2020 and a new leak further fuels that rumor and gives additional details on several editions of the game.
The news comes from gaming forum ResetERA where Senior Analyst at Niko Investors ZhugeEX confirmed the February 2020 release. ZhugeEX also mentions there will be four editions of the game coming out as well. The obvious standard, special and collector’s editions are pretty standard nowadays. The fourth is the Ellie Edition. There aren’t any details on what each edition includes though. I’d look to Days Gone and Death Stranding editions for an idea of what to expect.
What makes this seemingly random forum post newsworthy is it comes from the same leaker who gave us the Death Stranding release date and edition details before. But even though that leak was true take all of this with a grain of salt. Leakers have been wrong before and it is the internet. But until Sony and Naughty Dog give us any more info, it’s exciting to possibly have an idea of when to expect this highly anticipated sequel.
