Just a few days ago, Sony announced that The Last of Us: Part II will not be postponed. But that is exactly the case – and the corona situation is responsible for this.

That is probably called a role backwards: Only a few days ago we reported that Sony wants to stick to the release date of The Last of Us: Part II despite the corona crisis. The game should continue to be released on May 29th. But yesterday the company made a blatant change of direction. The action adventure is postponed indefinitely.
The reason for the rethinking is – unfortunately as expected – related to the corona pandemic and its consequences. Sony commented on Twitter and explained that the logistics (and therefore the delivery) of the game is currently so insecure that it has to be postponed. It is simply not possible to offer buyers a satisfactory publication, it continues.
Update: YOU has made the difficult decision to delay the launch of The Last of Us Part II and Marvel's Iron Man VR until further notice. Logistically, the global crisis is preventing us from providing the launch experience our players deserve.

Developer Naughty Dog also commented on Twitter. The studio is also disappointed with the need for the postponement, but assured that the game was almost done and that the last bugs were being eliminated.

In addition to The Last of Us: Part II, Iron Man VR will not be released until further notice, logically for the same reasons. The Marvel adventure was actually scheduled for May 15th. Sony announced that it would release new information on both games as soon as possible.
