May 2020 Video Game Release Dates

Any game released in May is going to be overshadowed by The Last of Us 2. Marvel’s Iron Man VR is an exciting thought but PSVR games have a tendency to be quite shallow. The Last of Us 2 was supposed to be available to fans at PAX East back in February, but Coronavirus fears forced Sony to cancel. The Last of US fans have been waiting for Part 2 since the moment they completed the original. Now, on May 29, they will have their chance to pick up where they left off.

May Update: It’s with a heavy heart we report that The Last of Us 2 has been put on hold. COVID-19 delayed the game and the publisher and developer are unsure when it will be available for purchase. Continue to check Video Game Releases 2020: Month by Month for the latest updates.
