This is the second release date that The Last of Us 2 has had to miss and this one is no doubt down to the recent COVID-19 epidemic.

The Last Of Us 2 Delayed AGAIN
In a warm message to fans on Twitter, Naughty Dog had this to say:
"As you've likely just seen, the release of The Last of Us Part II has been delayed. We're sure this news is just as disappointing to you as it is to us. We wanted to reach out to all of you in our community to give you a little more information.
The good news is, we're nearly done with development of The Last of Us Part II. We are in the midst of fixing our final bugs.
However, even with us finishing the game, we were faced with the reality that due to logistics beyond our control, we couldn't launch The Last of Us Part II to our satisfaction. We want to make sure everyone gets to play The Last of Us Part II around the same time, ensuring that we're doing everything possible to preserve the best experience for everyone. This meant delaying the game until such a time where we can solve these logistic issues.
We were bummed about this decision but ultimately understood it's what's best and fair to all of our players. We're hoping that this won't be a long delay and we'll update you as soon as we have new information to share.
We wish you all, your families, and your friends the best of health. Thank you being amazing fans and your continued support.
The game was originally scheduled to release on the 21st February 2020, before being moved to the 29th May.
The second delay comes without a new release date and as we countdown to the release of the PS5, you must assume that this game will launch on the next-generation console.
Fortunately for Naughty Dog, fans have been receptive to this upsetting news and are fully behind the team.
