Total bummer. My hope was that they would have just released it digitally on time, then followed up with the physical edition later. Hell, I would have happily bought it twice. Oh, well.

I wonder if there's more to it than just the Wuhan virus (Hong Kong Fluuey.... that was good.) Hasn't Naughty Dog been shedding employees in a quiet but big way over the years? I thought I had heard that they were not a great company to work for, especially around crunch time. And I've also heard that they have a pretty notoriously long crunch time. Maybe I heard it here even. I'm too lazy to look for links this morning.

You can keep it Naughty Dog, TLOU is one of the most overrated franchises of the last decade.

I'm with Chief on this one. I really don't understand way they don't do a digital release. I would think they would want to start making money on a finished product.

"We aren't going to make as much money as we want to, and our retail partners who have paid oh, so much money to us for retail end caps and the like would be super pissed, so we're delaying" would have been a way more honest release. A digital only release wouldn't net them nearly as much and would set a record for how fast the game ended up on mainstream "high seas" sites. A future physical release at that point would be worthless so, there ya go. There's no way they could "hold price" till Christmas, much less through Christmas 2021 (holding the original retail price point for as long as possible is a huge metric in the industry, even if you have to repackage in the second year to include DLC etc. to refresh at $60).

Considering the likely economic state of the world for most of 2020 and 2021 I am pretty sure they will do whatever they need to do to squeeze the drop of water from the stone of the people.

Wouldn't have been as popular but it would have been honest.

Lucky for Naughty Dog and Sony there are a TON of people dumber than average in this world (some might say about half!) and a TON of the rest that care even the least about TLOU2 will suck Naughty Dog off at the drop of the hat so they can get away with this being "fair to all our players" bullshit.

I loved TLOU, and have got several people to play it. It is amazing.

TLOU 2, based on the trailer and other information, has looked like a polarizing, annoying disaster. Hope I am wrong, but this delay doesn't even make a blip on my radar. F it, whatever.

Meh, good excuse to make it next gen and get rid of some of the stinky gayness. They should have just made her bi with a nice clean non-stinky woman. LMAO

I have to agree here. I just loved the first one and I have almost zero interest in the sequel. It seems like it only exists to push an agenda in our faces and not to be anything worth playing.

Like one thing I've noticed is that they basically haven't even shown the clickers in their zombie game. WTF?

This series is an overwrought, overrated pile of fecal matter I can smell but have no interest in other than shaking it off my shoe.

And now that I've done that, I'm done.

Terrible combat, and a plot that in the end was all for nothing. Yeah I didn't enjoy it. To each their own.
