The Last of Us Part 2 won't appear at The Game Awards 2018

The Last of Us Part 2 is out of the lineup, but will PlayStation be showing off anything else at The Game Awards 2018?


If you're a PS4 owner and were hoping to see some new announcements or at least an update on The Last of Us Part 2 at The Game Awards, you out of luck on at least one of those things. Naughty Dog has confirmed that no new The Last of Us Part 2 information will be shown at The Game Awards 2018.

This is yet another example of the PlayStation brand fading slightly into the background in regards to appearances at high-profile events. Sony is not hosting the PlayStation Experience this year, stating that the titles that would be shown are already known experiences and don't warrant gathering the fanbase. PlayStation is also skipping E3 for the first time since the event's inception.

You can get a full picture of what Sony has in store for PlayStation 4 owners by taking a look at the 2019 Shacknews Video Game Release Date Schedule, but here are a few highlights of potential 2019 releases:

  • Resident Evil 2 Remake
  • Kingdom Hearts 3
  • Days Gone
  • Left Alive
  • Beyond Good and Evil 2
  • Devil May Cry 5
  • Dying Light 2
  • Ghost of Tsushima
  • The Last of Us Part 2
  • Onimusha: Warlords Remastered
  • Sable
  • Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

Obsidian is one of the confirmed developers showing off something new at The Game Awards and the team is teasing what the new Private Division-published title is via a couple of ads on the official website.

Naughty Dog won't be showing off any new The Last of Us Part 2 gameplay, but that doesn't mean Sony is completely dodging The Game Awards 2018 this week. Ghost of Tsushima could use a new trailer and the company could have something special up their sleeves despite skipping the PlayStation Experience and E3. Stay tuned to Shacknews for additional updates.
