The bad news this time comes from Sony Interactive Entertainment. The company had some projects under development that might not see a release event too soon. On Twitter, Sony stated: “Update: SIE has made the difficult decision to delay the launch of The Last of Us Part II and Marvel’s Iron Man VR until further notice.” The future of the two games is currently uncertain. Sony also explained that the reason involves the global crisis.
As the coronavirus crisis continues, we witness more and more events getting delayed. For some apps, there was another chance, as we saw them getting revived, such as Houseparty. While others, became relevant again, but as Desktop versions, the case of the Messenger App by Facebook.
The Last of Us Part 2 and Iron Man VR Launch Details
According to Sony’s last tweet, the company has not canceled The Last of Us Part 2 or Iron Man VR. The games were only put on a pause. So far, we know that the two games have been received quite the praise. The Last of Us was launched back in 2013. Following the story of the main character, a few years later, many fans have been willing to get another part for quite some time now. The game was so well-received that it got a remaster for PS4, too. But, such a thing was inevitable. The Last of Us was released right at the end of the PS3.
As for its second part, devs announced it a few years ago. The game has encountered so many delays that most of the fans lost hope. For example, The Last of Us Part 2 should have been released initially in February 2020 but got postponed to May. Now, Sony put the game to rest again.
Marvel’s Iron Man VR is another drama. The game was initially announced back in 2019. The live demo was fantastic, and we got our hopes high. The promised VR technology sounded like a new immersive experience to gaming. Devs even introduced a full new armor. But, as Sony announced, the future of Iron Man VR is put on hold, such as The Last of Us Part 2. There are chances to be released at the end of the year, but right now, we should wait for Sony’s official statements.
