Publisher Sony Interactive Entertainment and developer Naughty Dog last week released a new State of Play dedicated to the upcoming PlayStation 4 game, The Last of Us Part II. It featured a closer look at the gameplay mechanics in the game, as well as over eight minutes of uninterrupted never before seen gameplay at the end.
The Last of Us Part II will be launching for the PlayStation 4 in June 19 and Sony Interactive Entertainment President and CEO Jim Ryan in an interview with CNET hopes it will be a defining game for this generation. However, he revealed the game will run on the PlayStation 5 without any issues.
"We hope this'll be a defining game for this generation," Ryan said when talking about The Last of Us Part II.
Sony will be hosting a PS5 event on June 4 at 1pm PDT / 4pm EDT / 9pm BST. It will be streamed on Twitch and YouTube. The digital event will be just over and hour in length and feature a first look at games in development for the next generation console.
"The games coming to PS5 represent the best in the industry from innovative studios that span the globe. Studios, both larger and smaller, those newer and those more established, all have been hard at work developing games that will showcase the potential of the hardware," said Ryan during the announcement of the PS5 event.
"This digital showcase will run for a bit more than an hour and, for the first time, we will all be together virtually experiencing the excitement together. A lack of physical events has given us an amazing opportunity to think differently and bring you on this journey with us, and hopefully, closer than ever before. This is part of our series of PS5 updates and, rest assured, after next week’s showcase, we will still have much to share with you."
The PS5 will launch in Holiday 2020.
