The Last of Us: Part II Releasing in February 2020, Special Editions Revealed

Naughty Dog has finally confirmed the release date of probably the most hyped game of this generation, The Last of Us: Part II. It turns out the recent leaks and rumors were true and the game is indeed releasing in February 2020. This also proves that with Naughty Dog releasing the title on the last leg of the current generation, a next-generation version will also be released later, however, this has not been confirmed at this point.

Naughty Dog revealed a brand new trailer for The Last of Us: Part II during the recent Sony’s State of Play stream which revealed some brand new locations, characters, gave us a little bit of story’s direction and showed the most awaited character making a return to the franchise, Joel. It looks like Joel is indeed alive and he is not letting Ellie go on this brand new journey alone however it seems like not every friend of Ellie is going to be lucky this time around.

We also get to see more of Dina however the trailer might have shown us a little glimpse of what sort of fate awaits her. Or we could be entirely wrong about that too. In any case, the new trailer is amazing and to make it sound even cooler, The Last of Us: Part II will ship on 2 blue-ray discs which means that the game is going to be huge. We can expect some really detailed cinematics during the game and the world would definitely be bigger than the first game.

The exact release date for The Last of Us: Part II is February 20, 2020, which means that it will arrive soon after the winter holiday season is over and a perfect start to next year. Along with the release date, Naughty Dog also revealed the special editions of the game and this time around, we have three special editions that true fans of the franchise will be able to purchase. There’s the Special Edition, Collector’s Edition and Ellie Edition. Fans who want digital goodies can stick to Digital Deluxe Edition.

The Collector’s Edition comes with a 12’ Ellie statue, a life-sized replica of Ellie’s bracelet, a custom Steelbook case, 48-page mini art book from Dark Horse, a set of six enamel pins, lithograph art print, and five stickers.
