Ashley Johnson: Voice actor, role-player, rumor gasoline dispenser.
It’s trying like The Final of Us Half 2 could launch in February 2020, in response to a number of experiences.
Initially reported on by Eurogamer, three separate experiences or feedback point out an early 2020 launch date for extremely anticipated The Final of Us 2. First is a latest interview from the Vital Function YouTube channel between voice actor Ashley Johnson (who performs Ellie in The Final of Us and performs a number of character in Vital Function) and Vital Function inventive producer Brian Foster, who’re additionally engaged to at least one one other.
Within the interview, Foster asks Johnson when the sport is popping out, and Johnson begins to mouth what seems to be the phrase “February,” making a definite “feh” sound earlier than Foster truly interrupts her with a follow-up remark. Skip to the one hour and 7 minute mark to see the trade.
Lending slightly extra credibility to that doable slip of the tongue is an earlier report from Kotaku’s Jason Schreier. Again in Might, Schreier’s supply knowledgeable him that Loss of life Stranding, Hideo Kojima’s upcoming sport, would launch in November, which turned out to be true. Together with that, Schreier says he was advised that The Final of Us 2 was bumped to “early 2020, presumably February?”
Daniel Ahmad, a online game trade analyst for Niko Companions, later posted on ResetEra that February 2020 is the present inner date at developer Naughty Canine for the Final of Us 2. It’s not clear how Ahmad took place this data, nevertheless.
Placing The Final of Us 2 into early 2020 wouldn’t be unlikely. The primary sport launched on the PS3 in June 2013. With Loss of life Stranding, Jedi: Fallen Order, Pokémon: Sword and Protect in November 2019, and Name of Obligation and Outer Wilds releasing late October, it could make sense for even an enormous title like The Final of Us 2 to permit itself some respiration room early subsequent yr.
