Pachter: The Last of Us Part II Could Debut This Year
The Last of Us Part II is one of the most anticipated games in recent years and the eyes of millions of players will be focused on the presentation of PlayStation in E3 2018, because there will be a new trailer. Of course, in addition to seeing the current status of the project, fans expect to know information about the release date and Michael Pachter gave his prognosis about it.
In an interview for GamingBolt, Michael Pachter, an analyst at Wedbush Securities, spoke about the next major releases coming on the way to PS4, in particular, The Last of Us Part II.
According to the analyst, although Naughty Dog has been very secretive as to what is happening with the development and progress of the project, its proven quality makes it contemplate 2019 as the furthest year for those waiting for the new title; however, this would not be final and the studio could give a resounding surprise: “You know, Death Stranding, who knows when that will come out? That might be 2025. And I gotta say, that is the weirdest looking game I have ever seen. The Last of Us 2, those guys are really prolific, I’d say that game is coming out no later than 2019, and it could surprise us this year as well. Sony has been good.”
Regarding its debut forecast of The Last of Us Part II in 2019, Pachter said: “You never know, those guys surprised us the last time. They’re pretty prolific, they’re pretty competent, Naughty Dog. I don’t know when it is coming out, but it would surprise me if it came out later than 2019.”
