The Last of Us 2 Has Been Removed from the PlayStation Store, Refunds Issued

Maybe the delay is going to take longer than previously expected

As we turned the calendars to April, we learned that The Last of Us 2 had been delayed indefinitely. Just a couple of days later the VP of Naughty Dog appeared on the Official PlayStation Blogcast and insisted that the game was nearly completed and the studio was currently looking at ways to get it into the hands of gamers – something that hinted that The Last of Us 2 might launch sooner than later. Now, it looks like The Last of Us 2 along with Iron Man VR have been completely pulled from the PSN Store and refunds are being issued for any pre-orders. The PlayStation Support website issued the following statement:

“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.”

We went a step further to see if we could still find The Last of Us 2 on the PlayStation store, and there are zero results at the console level. If you look on the Official PlayStation site, though, it still comes up and displays information about the game along with the different collector’s editions that will eventually roll out.

So, that leaves the question of whether or not there’s any chance at all that Naughty Dog will still manage to get the game to us sometime this year, let alone by the most recent May 29 launch date. All we know so far is that the game has been delayed indefinitely, but some hope still remains as the last report from Naughty Dog suggested that the game was nearly complete and ready to go. For now, we’ll just have to wait and see. We’ll be sure to let you know about any developments as they arise, so stay tuned.
