Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us Part 2 has had a bit of a rocky road on the way to launch, but finally (for the third time) we have a release date, and it’s soon.
The digital store pages for the game were pulled from PlayStation Network after the game suffered its second delay, but now they’ve returned and revealed some VERY interesting info about the installation size.
According to the game’s American store page, The Last of Us Part 2 will take up at least 100GB of hard drive space on your PlayStation 4, making it the largest PlayStation exclusive title of all time. The physical version will be shipped on two discs.
Considering that this is a single player game that isn’t open world, that’s a pretty hefty chunk of space right there! Presumably it’s so large due to the graphics and audio of the game, though of course, we’ve only seen snippets of the final product so far.
The Last of Us Part 2 recently suffered from huge leaks online when developer footage hit the internet. It’s believed that the footage came from an ex-Naughty Dog employee, though this has yet to be confirmed. Spoilers are everywhere right now (even in the live comments of Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla announcement) so as always, watch your step to avoid disappointment!
In a statement, Naughty Dog said the following:
“We know the last few days have been incredibly difficult for you. We feel the same. It’s disappointing to see the release and sharing of pre-release footage from development. Do your best to avoid spoilers and we ask that you don’t spoil it for others.
“The Last of Us Part II will be in your hands soon. No matter what you see and hear, the final experience will be worth it.”
The game’s official description reads as follows: “As Ellie pursues vengeance after a traumatic violent event, you must confront the devastating physical and emotional repercussions of her actions.”
The Last of Us Part 2 will release exclusively on PlayStation 4, June 19 2020.
