UPDATE: The new release date is 29 May, 2020. The original report is as follows.
The Last of Us Part II has been apparently delayed and will not make its February release date. Kotaku’s sources say publisher Sony has delayed the game to “spring”. Its previously revealed release date was 21 February, 2020. The news is not currently official nor has Sony commented. An announcement should be coming in the week about its status.
There’s still plenty to look forward to in the first half of 2020; Final Fantasy VII Remake and Cyberpunk 2077 notwithstanding. The Last of Us Part II and Ghost of Tsushima are expected to be the last major PS4 exclusives, before the PS5 launches “holiday 2020”.
