Sony has already removed The Last of Us: Part II from the PlayStation Store. The product entry can no longer be called up. Pre-orders are also not possible. Now, the company has stated that all the consumers will automatically receive a refund who have pre-ordered the game.
Sony has now confirmed that the amounts for pre-orders from The Last of Us Part II will be refunded. The same applies to Iron Man VR. Sony has made an announcement on its official PlayStation website: “The Last of Us Part II and Iron Man VR have been delayed. All digital pre-order consumers will automatically receive a refund. Please check your email for more details.”
Sony and Naughty Dog announced last week that the game had to be delayed again. This means that the additionally targeted launch on May 29, 2020, will not take place. In the statement of reasons, the companies referred to logistical problems that were triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic. No in-depth details of the difficulties were given. And when the publication should be rescheduled is also unclear.
Creative director Neil Druckmann later added, stressing that ways are being sought to make the game available to fans as soon as possible. When asked whether Naughty Dog could at least publish The Last of Us Part 2 digitally, Druckmann replied that “there is still no final decision.” At the same time, he emphasized that the game was almost finished.
In recent news, the plot of the game was reportedly leaked that revolves around LGBTQ persecution. On the other hand, some gameplay clips of the title were also leaked online.
It remains to be seen whether fans will actually have to wait many months for The Last of Us Part II. Perhaps the product entry will appear again shortly with a new appointment.
