Update: SIE has made the difficult decision to delay the launch of The Last of Us Part II and Marvel's Iron Man VR until further notice. Logistically, the global crisis is preventing us from providing the launch experience our players deserve.— PlayStation (@PlayStation) 2 April 2020
The sequel to 2013 game The Last of Us was initially set to release on 29 May. However, in a statement released , Naughty Dog announced that they would not be able to release the game on its original release date.

The studio says that
we were faced with the reality that due to logistics beyond our control, (i.e., coronavirus) so
we couldn't launch The Last of Us Part II to our satisfaction. [...] This meant delaying the game until such a time where we can solve these logistic issues.
The Last of Us Part II is set five years after the events of the original game, where you have to try and survive in a post-apocalyptic America against hostile humans infected with a mutant illness (hmm...).
The game will eventually be releasing on the PlayStation 4, probably when this pandemic has subsided (i.e., "not soon"), so watch this space.
