Just in case you hoped it would only be a short delay for The Last Of Us Part 2, the game has been removed from the PlayStation Store.
2020 was already a terrible year for delays before the coronavirus hit and now it seems that no game is safe from indefinite delays, including PlayStation 4 exclusives The Last Of Us Part 2 and Marvel’s Iron Man VR.
Last week, both games were delayed ‘until further notice’ and while developer Naughty Dog had seemed to hint that they were aiming at a late summer release for The Last Of Us the game has now been removed from the PlayStation Store.
There are still some avatars and themes left to download, if you want to remind yourself that the game still exists, but here’s now no trace of Marvel’s Iron Man VR at all.
How to get The Last Of Us Part 2 refunds
According to a message on the Sony support pages all digital pre-orders customers will ‘automatically receive a refund’. Anyone that ordered a physical copy though will have to get in contact with the store they bought it from.
The Last Of Us Part 2 was due to have been released on 29 May and Marvel’s Iron Man VR on 15 May but there is currently no guarantee that either will still be out this year.
Both games had already been delayed once each for ‘normal’ reasons but according to Naughty Dog The Last Of Us Part 2 is almost finished and would have made its May release date.
Given that’s true many fans have called for the game to be released digitally as soon as possible, but so far Naughty Dog have been very non-committal on the subject:
‘We’re right now looking at all sorts of options. What is the best way to get it to all of our fans as soon as possible, but that’s gonna take time for us to shift and figure things out and also see where the world is at. Things are changing from day to day.’
They and Sony will be very keen not to do anything to diminish potential sales of the game, and a staggered release in the middle of the coronavirus crisis is not likely to lead to any sales records being broken.
