Sony and Naughty Dog are showing a lot of confidence in The Last of Us Part II, as the game's review embargo date is set one week before its official launch.
We are all extremely excited for The Last of Us Part II, especially after the brutal story trailer. Now, we can count down the days until the first reviews appear.
The Last of Us Part II review embargo
The Last of Us Part II went gold early this month, and while there might be a day one update, reviewers are already playing the game right now.
This should give reviewers from top publications enough time to get full reviews out.
According to Greg Miller from KindaFunny.com, the review embargo date for The Last of Us Part II is 12th June, one week before the game's release.
This shows a lot of confidence from Naughty Dog and Sony, especially after some drama due to story leaks.
For those in the UK, this puts the review embargo time for The Last of Us Part II at 10:00 am (GMT+1).
If you can't wait to see more about the game, then don't fear. A State of Play takes place on 27th May 2020, where the developers will show new gameplay footage, and more.
