Earlier this week, Sony revealed the date for their next State of Play live stream, which is currently scheduled to begin at 1 PM Pacific, 4 PM Eastern. In addition to revealing the date of their next live stream, both Sony and Neil Druckmann, who is the creative director at Naughty Dog, confirmed that The Last of Us Part II will be a part of the upcoming State of Play stream.

After it was confirmed that The Last of Us Part II will be shown during Sony’s next State of Play, many began predicting that the live stream will reveal the release date for what could be the most anticipated PlayStation exclusive in quite some time. But, an update on a Swiss retail website has leaked the release date ahead of Tuesday’s live stream.

According to the website, which is called Softridge, revealed that The Last of Us Part II is set to hit PlayStation 4 on February 28, 2020, which is much sooner than some expected given the fact that there was a recent leak which suggested that the game was going to come out in May of next year. Of course, since being discovered, the product listing has been removed from the website.

Before the listing was pulled, some were able to grab a screenshot of it, and you can check one of them out below. You can see the release date listed on the right side of the page.

The website also leaked the different editions of The Last of Us Part II, which, along with the listing, were pulled as well. You can check them out via the screenshot below.

As you can see, there’s going to be three different editions of The Last of Us Part II: Standard Edition, Special Edition, and Collector’s Edition. It was previously rumored that the Collector’s Edition was going to be named the Ellie Edition, but Sony ended up going with the former rather than the latter.

One thing that’s notable on all of the editions is that Joel is nowhere to be seen. There’s been a ton of speculation about what his role will be in The Last of Us Part II, with some being concerned that he’s either already dead, going to die during the game, or that he’s going to end up being the main villain.

As of this writing, only one of the trailers for The Last of Us Part II featured Joel, although we weren’t able to see his face. If he shows up during the State of Play live stream, it’ll be the first time we’ve seen or heard from him since 2016’s PlayStation Experience event.
