The official description reads:
“Watch the all-new story trailer for The Last of Us Part II launching on June 19, 2020. After a vicious and violent event disrupts the relative peace that Ellie has found in Jackson, she sets out to bring justice to those responsible. As she hunts them down one by one, she is confronted with the devastating physical and emotional repercussions of her actions.”
The new trailer comes on the heels of major storyline spoilers being leaked online. Naughty Dog commented on the unfortunate turn of events.
“It’s disappointing to see the release and sharing of pre-release footage from development,” the team said. “Do your best to avoid spoilers, and we ask that you don’t spoil it for others.”
“No matter what you see and hear,” they added, “the final experience will be worth it.”
The lead-up to the launch of the game has been shaky. Earlier, the game was earlier supposed to launch in May. However, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the game was delayed indefinitely in early April. Fans would be relieved to know that there would be no more delays and they can get the game in June, 2020.
