The company announced last month that The Last of Us 2 would be delayed indefinitely following "logicial concerns" seemingly caused by Covid-19. The highly-anticipated sequel to The Last of Us was due to release on May 29, having already been delayed from February 21, so this new release date means we'll only have to wait an extra few weeks to get our hands on it.
However, Sucker Punch's Ghost of Tsushima, its Shogunate historical adventure, has now been delayed from June 26 to July 19.

With Sony previously stating The Last of Us 2's delay was indefinite, we weren't quite sure when we would see the post-apocalyptic adventure, with some speculating we could be in for quite a wait. So the game to only being delayed by a few weeks is welcome news.
However, it's possible that Sony's hand has been forced due to The Last of Us 2 spoilers being leaked online. Either way, we don't have much longer to wait until we're reunited with Ellie and Joel once more.
