Sony Interactive Entertainment has confirmed release dates for two of its biggest upcoming PS4 releases. Naughty Dog’s long-awaited sequel The Last of Us Part II will launch on June 19, while Sucker Punch Productions’ Ghost of Tsushima will follow on July 17.

“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,” reads a statement on the PlayStation Blog. “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.”
