Naughty Dog has just released an announcement from its official social media account to address the various leaks yesterday of The Last of Us Part 2, along with the reveal of a new June 19 release date. This is probably to stem the tide of angry fans and people who were disappointed with the game because of the leak.

In another short tweet, Naughty Dog said that they are disappointed about the leak of the pre-release footage and hope that fans would be able to avoid spoilers and not spoiling it for others. Looks like the leaks from our previous post were more or less legit after all. Those leaked footages were from an angry employee of Naughty Dog – he also reveals that the company has been crunching super hard to get The Last of Us 2 out on time, which probably leads to dissatisfaction from the employees.

Previously delayed indefinitely, Part 2 of the game will be released on June 19.

In other news, Ghost of Tsushima, the samurai-themed open-world RPG title by infamous developer Sucker Punch, is pushed back to July 17 from its original June 26 release date. This is probably a deliberate attempt by Sony to give The Last of Us part 2 some breathing room. They blame Covid-19 for this, of course. This delay means that Ghost of Tsushima would be the last major release for the PS4, prior to the PS5's debut in Q4 2020.
