Naughty Dog's last big title is now 4 years old

The second “The Last of Us” spin-off is one year older. Naughty Dog drew attention to this with a tweet today.

On June 19, 2020, “The Last of Us Part 2” was released for the PS4. It was (along with “Ghost of Tsushima”) the penultimate major exclusive title for Sony’s second most successful console.


The controversial plot divided the PlayStation community. This can be clearly seen in the User score on Metacritic, which is just 5.8 out of ten points. The metascore is completely different, at an impressive 93 points. The fun action-stealth mechanics, the impressive graphics and the polarizing story have led to this high score.

This did not harm the success: By spring 2022, part two sold more than ten million times. What the sales figures look like now is unknown.

For the fourth anniversary, Naughty Dog posted a post thanking players:
