As our teams at Sony Interactive Entertainment and Worldwide Studios approach development milestones and confront a world changed by COVID-19, we find ourselves having to adapt to today’s ever-changing environment. Amidst some disruptions to our working styles, we wanted to provide an update to PlayStation gamers who are eager to learn when our next exclusive titles will arrive to PlayStation 4.

He mentions about an ease in the global distribution environment, hence the confirmation of the release dates for the above mentioned titles. Hopefully this would be the last of the delays, as we stay home to ensure the coronavirus doesn’t spread any further.
I want to personally congratulate and thank both the teams at Naughty Dog and Sucker Punch Productions on their achievements, as we know it’s not an easy feat to reach the finish line under these circumstances. Both teams have worked hard to deliver world-class experiences, and we can’t wait to see what you think of them when they release in just a few short months.
And finally, I want to thank the PlayStation Community for their continuous support and patience.
Incidentally, TLOU Part II has recently seen a whole lot of leaks and spoilers, so be careful, everyone.
