The Last Of Us Part 2 is finally upon us! After tiring months of controversy surrounding leaks that the director has somewhat refuted, Ellie’s sequel is finally nearly ready to play. Lots of eager fans are asking what time does The Last Of Us 2 come out, and here you’ll discover when it’ll unlock on PlayStation 4 so you can enjoy it as soon as possible.

Although The Last Of Us Part 2 is the third highest rated PS4 game on Metacritic just above Persona 5 Royal, you should know that not everyone is unanimously in love with the game. Director Neil Druckmann has warned that it’s not a sequel designed to be ‘fun’, and some outlets have negatively critiqued it for being overly bleak. This means you may not wish to play Ellie’s second outing if you’re already getting enough depression from being on Twitter.

However, if you’re committed to buying and playing the sequel with Ellie as the playable character rather than Joel, below you’ll discover what time it will come out so you can begin playing the second it unlocks.
