The Last of Us Part 2, Naughty Dog’s sequel to the critically acclaimed third-person shooter of 2013, was announced at PlayStation Experience a few years back. But so far, that’s all we know. Sony never revealed the release date, or if it will come on a next-gen console.
Past rumours have indicated a 2019 release date, and so far recent leaks have proven that the game will be out later this year. A Peruvian retailer, LawGamers, recently published a promotional poster on its website, with the release month clearly stating an October 2019 release.

First discovered by TheLootGaming, the leak has not confirmed anything outside of the small print. It could be a speculative image that wasn’t meant to see sunlight, but it looks pretty official to me.
The October 2019 window seems like a suitable launch time for the game as it makes sense to fill in the holiday gap with a game of this genre. Even Death Stranding is still far away.
Sony nor Naughty Dog has commented on this leak, so it’s still just a rumour. For the time being, take it with a grain of salt. In the meantime, here’s a refresher on The Last Of Us Part 2.
