As the world continues to wait for the release of Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us Part 2, veteran video game actor Troy Baker has warned we’re absolutely not ready for it.

Speaking at Manchester Comic Con, Baker, who voices main character Joel, said: “There is nothing about [The Last of Us 2], nor the revealing thereof, that has not been 100% carefully crafted and methodically curated.

“All I can tell you is that, as much as you’re clamouring for it, you’re not ready. You’re not ready.”

Colour me excited!

Ready or not, it’s about time we got an update on the sequel from Naughty Dog. We’ve been hearing rumours about its release for a while, and it’s looking like a February 2020 launch might be on the cards.

Before the recent reveal of Death Stranding‘s release date, industry insider and Kotaku top dog, Jason Schreier took to Twitter to share his knowledge on both games.

He tweeted at the time: “Looks like Death Stranding is about to get announced for a November release.

“The Last of Us 2 was also planned for fall 2019 but I actually just heard it got bumped to early 2020, possibly February? Either way, wild final year for PS4.”

Adding further fuel to the fire comes some even more solid-looking evidence via @Nibellion and @ZhugeEX on Twitter.

Nibel earlier this year tweeted: “Rumor: The Last Of Us 2 to launch February 2020 with 4 different editions (Standard Edition, Special Edition, Collector’s Edition, Ellie Edition) according to Chinese source (who correctly predicted DS’s November 2019 pre-announcement)”

This is a particularly interesting leak because it not only comes from a source that’s correctly predicted a Sony game release date in the past (Death Stranding), but it’s also the first mention of various special editions that might be up for purchase.

Hopefully we’ll hear some confirmation on when the game is coming sooner rather than later.
