We don’t have an official Last of Us 2 release date for PS4, but that hasn’t stopped retailers from selling the game. Last of Us 2 pre-orders are live and while some of you might want to put in an early order today, others are better off waiting.
Believe it or not it’s been five years since Naughty Dog released the critically acclaimed The Last of Us. Fans of the series have been waiting to continue Ellie and Joel’s story and they’ll finally get the chance thanks to a sequel that’ll once again be a PlayStation 4 exclusive.
Naughty Dog confirmed the existence of Last of Us 2 (stylized as The Last of Us Part II) in December. The company was relatively quiet in the first half of the year but it recently teased the game, and its gameplay, during E3 2018.
Last of Us 2 is a direct sequel to the first game though it’s set five years after the original. Ellie is now 19 years old while Joel, the main protagonist from the first game, is now in his 50’s.
A lot of people have been waiting a long time for this game, but we’ll have to wait awhile longer before the final product is released to the public.
The game is official, but we don’t have a street date. Naughty Dog didn’t attach a release date to the demo at E3 2018 so there’s no telling how long we’ll have to wait for this game to hit shelves.
Now that we know a little more about the direction of the game some of you, particularly those of you who loved the first game, might be tempted to put in a pre-order.
There are a few reasons why you might want to buy the game now, but there are also some great reasons to sit back and wait a few more weeks or even a few more months before putting in an order.
