The screenshots offer new looks at Joel and Ellie, as well as the return of Tommy and brand new characters. Some of the scenes in the screenshots were not what we saw when we went hands-on with The Last of Us Part 2 last year, but unfortunately no additional story details accompanied the new images.
The Last of Us Part 2 first received a release date of February 22, 2020 late last year, but soon after Naughty Dog announced a delayed Last of Us Part 2 release date to May 29, and most recently confirmed the sequel is delayed “until such a time where we can solve these logistic issues.” Naughty Dog’s latest announcement noted last of Us Part 2 is “nearly done,” but that concerns over all players getting to play at launch, when the spread of COVID-19 has caused many stores to temporarily close and states and nations to adopt lockdown protocols, has led to the decision to delay.
For more on the upcoming sequel, we spoke to Druckmann about Joel’s role in The Last of Us Part 2, why The Last of Us Part 2 isn’t an open world game, as well as how dogs affect stealth and combat in The Last of Us sequel.
