Following her supposedly revealing interview, Ashley Johnson has announced The Last Of Us Part 2’s “definitely real” release date on Instagram.
If everything on the internet was true, then Naughty Dog’s The Last Of Us Part 2 will already be available to buy. Amazon Italy said it would come out in March, a gaming retailer listed it for October, and now Ashley Johnson has joked about revealing its “definitely real” release date on Instagram.
The Last Of Us Part 2 is Naughty Dog’s follow-up to their six-years-old magnum opus, and it has apparently been internally delayed to 2020.
Joel and Ellie’s continuation definitely won’t release this year seeing as Death Stranding has taken up Sony’s Fall 2019 release window, but – according to Johnson – PS4 gamers won’t have to wait too long to re-enter the world’s most depressing post-apocalyptic world.
Did Ashley Johnson reveal TLOU 2’s “definitely real” release date on Instagram?
Following Ashley Johnson’s interview with Brian W. Foster, every PlayStation 4 gamer has gotten excited about the likelihood of The Last Of Us Part 2 finally arriving in February 2020.
Naughty Dog, Neil Druckmann, Troy Baker, and Johnson aren’t strangers to being bombarded with questions pertaining to the game’s release date, but Johnson is one of the few to actually respond to a fan on Instagram.
In what is a clear joke that doesn’t need to be explained, Johnson responded to one of the many demands for a release date announcement by saying that October 32 and February 31 are the “DEFINITELY REAL” release dates she’s always stood by.
While no one’s intelligence needs to be insulted by explaining what the joke is, it’s still possible that The Last Of Us Part 2 will arrive in Q1 2020.
Kotaku’s Jason Schreier noted that Naughty Dog’s sequel had been internally delayed to February, meanwhile Johnson stopped herself from saying the year’s second month in her interview with Foster at the 1:07:21 mark.
If The Last Of Us Part 2 does arrive in February, then 2020 isn’t going to stop emptying everyone’s wallets as the Final Fantasy 7 Remake, Cyberpunk 2077, and Avengers A-Day will all follow in March, April, and May. .
