The Last Of Us Part II Preorders Remain High After Leaks

After the initial leaks spoiled major story beats for the upcoming The Last of Us Part II, fans all around expressed their disappointment in the narrative direction in the game. This has caused many to believe that sales for the title would suffer. However, that doesn’t appear to be the case, as PlayStation CEO Jim Ryan tells that preorder numbers have seen little impact from these events.

Speaking with CNET, Ryan explains that Sony has “tallied more preorders in Europe for The Last of Us Part II than it did for Marvel’s Spider-Man at the same point before its launch.” Ryan also indicates that demand for the sequel “remains strong” even after the events of the leaks.

Jim Ryan also provides more news regarding a possible PS5 release of the game. Specifically, he states that no plans are currently in the works for an enhanced port. However, the PS4 version of The Last of Us Part II will run on the PS5 “without issue,” according to Ryan.

The Last of Us Part II has had a hectic path to launch to say the least. With an initial release date of February 21, 2020, the game was pushed back to May 29 to provide more development time for developer Naughty Dog. They then pushed the date once again to June 19 due to the effects of the current COVID-19 pandemic.
