While Ghost of Tsushima will be out on the PS4 on July 17.
The news was revealed in a post on the PlayStation Blog by Hermen Hulst, the Head of Worldwide Studios.
Hulst said: “As our teams at Sony Interactive Entertainment and Worldwide Studios approach development milestones and confront a world changed by COVID-19, we find ourselves having to adapt to today’s ever-changing environment.
“Amidst some disruptions to our working styles, we wanted to provide an update to PlayStation gamers who are eager to learn when our next exclusive titles will arrive to PlayStation 4.
“As we begin to see an ease in the global distribution environment, I am pleased to confirm that The Last of Us Part II will arrive on 19th June. And Ghost of Tsushima will follow on 17th July.
“I want to personally congratulate and thank both the teams at Naughty Dog and Sucker Punch Productions on their achievements, as we know it’s not an easy feat to reach the finish line under these circumstances.”
The release date confirmation comes after over the weekend major plot details for the Last of Us Part 2 were leaked.
Major plot details, including late game spoilers, for the Last of Us 2 were leaked over the weekend.
We won’t detail any of the leaks in this article, but be sure to keep a lookout for any spoilers on forums, social media, YouTube or other websites.
The upcoming releases of Last of Us 2 and Ghost of Tsushima will mark an incredible couple of months for the PS4 ahead of the launch of the PS5 towards the end of 2020.
Both the Last of Us 2 and Ghost of Tsushima are two of the biggest games of the year – and of this generation.
The fact that these titles are exclusive to the PS4 underlines how impressive Sony’s first-party output has been this gen.
These aren’t the only big name titles that are coming to the PS4 exclusively in 2020.
The Final Fantasy 7 Remake, which was released earlier this month, is also only playable on Sony’s PlayStation 4.
