Last week, Sony officially announced the date for their next State of Play live stream, and almost immediately following the announcement, Naughty Dog added that, during the stream, they would show more of The Last of Us Part II, which hasn't been seen since 2018's E3 event. \n \nBefore the stream, it looked like a Swiss retailer might've leaked the release date for The Last of Us Part II, as they put up a listing for the game which said that it would be available on February 28. In addition to that, the retailer also listed three different versions of the game: Standard Edition, Special Edition, and Collector's Edition. As of right now, we don't know if the listing for the three different versions is correct, but we do know that the release date listed wasn't correct. \n \nDuring today's State of Play live stream, Sony showed a lot more about the story in The Last of Us Part II, and, on top of that, they revealed that, while the game is going to be released in February of next year, it'll be released on February 21, which is one week sooner than the Swiss retailer listing. \n \nIf you happened to miss this afternoon's State of Play live stream, then you can check out the trailer for The Last of Us Part II below. \n \nhttps:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=II5UsqP2JAk \n \nWe also got our first look at Joel, the first game's main protagonist, at the end of the trailer, as it was confirmed that he is, in fact, still alive in the sequel. In addition to seeing Joel for the first time, we also saw his brother Tommy, which is who Joel and Ellie went to stay with at the end of the first game. \n \nWhile we did see Joel for the first time, we still didn't get an idea of how much he'll be involved in the game, or if we'll be able to play as him at some point. But, the trailer did reveal that he'll join Ellie, who is the main protagonist in Part II, for at least part of her journey. \n \nThe trailer does seem to suggest that Ellie is out for revenge against a group for killing her girlfriend. Of course, the trailer only shows Ellie begging the group not to do something, and soon thereafter, you hear a gunshot, thus kicking off her revenge plot. \n \nSo, nearly three years after the reveal, we finally have a release date for The Last of Us Part II, as it'll hit the PlayStation 4 on February 21, 2020.
