The Last of Us Part 2 Rumored to Release in February 2020

Rumor suggests The Last of Us Part II is going to release for PS4 in February 2020 with four different editions.

Fans are eagerly waiting to get any update on upcoming PlayStation 4 action-adventure game The Last of Us Part II but we don't have a definitive release date from developer Naughty Dog and publisher Sony Interactive Entertainment yet.

We do know that back in May 2019, shooting for TLoU2 was finally wrapped, which was revealed by game director Neil Druckmann on Twitter and according to a newly leaked rumor from ResetEra, is releasing on February 2020.

A recent post at ResetEra forum claims for the game to come out in February 2020 and earlier this year, same source has leaked a possible November release of Hideo Kojima's mysterious title Death Stranding ahead of its grand reveal.

It also claims The Last of Us Part II will be available in four different versions; Standard, Special, Collector's and Ellie Edition. Though it is not confirmed what "Ellie Edition" would feature but it certainly is going to be most expensive among all four.

As a sequel to critically acclaimed title The Last of Us from 2013, Part II is currently one of the most anticipated games on PS4. Despite being announced during 2016 PlayStation Experience event, it doesn't have a launch window so far.

Apparently, PlayStation will see launch to some notable AAA-exclusive titles like Death Stranding and Final Fantasy VII Remake by latter half of 2019 and beginning of 2020 but TLoU2 has yet to claim a release window in the mean time.

Considering this leak to be true, TLoU sequel is going to come out months before Cyberpunk 2077, FFVII Remake and Watch Dogs: Legion. Plus, February 2020 makes sense as there are no other bigger releases nearing that window.

We are in Q3 of current financial year and it doesn't look like The Last of Us Part II will drop within rest of 2019. Instead, Sony may announce an official launch date through an upcoming State of Play presentation since they already skipped E3 2019.
