Update: Naughty Dog confirmed that The Last Of Us Part 2 will be out 29th May 2020. Still no updates regarding Ghost of Tsushima though.
If a release date sounds too good to be true, then it probably is. Such is the case of the early February stamp of a much-anticipated PlayStation 4 exclusive.
In the aforementioned article, Schreier clarifies that this is definitely not an official announcement. You can expect one within the week.
Furthermore, he also mentioned of another PS4 exclusive that may be out later in 2020: the Sucker Punch-created samurai epic Ghost of Tsushima, most likely to account for this delay.
BTW, Ghost of Tsushima doesn't have a public release date yet, but it'll also be bumped later into 2020 to account for this delay. Don't expect them to suddenly turn it into a PS5 game or anything, but it was originally planned for the first half of the year – not anymore

Officially speaking, The Last of Us Part 2 is scheduled to be released on 21 February 2020 exclusively for the PS4. It’s expected to be one of the last major titles of the PS4, which is quite similar to what the first game was to the PS3.
The PlayStation 5 is coming out in late 2020 so it’s highly unlikely that The Last of Us Part 2 will be rescheduled as a PS5 launch title. Still, we’ll have to wait and see what Naughty Dog says in an official capacity.
