Naughty Dog's TLOU2 could be coming to PS5 consoles in the future and here's everything we know.

With the PS5 boasting 4K, Ray Tracing, and a whole lot more, could TLOU2 be coming to the PS5 to make use of the new technology available?


Release Date

This is one we don't have a whole lot of information on. With PlayStation's first State of Play for 2021 almost here, fans are expecting a lot from Sony.

At least ten games for both the PS5 and PS4 are being shown in the 30-minute presentation and TLOU2 on the PS5 could be among them.

Although subtle, marketing for TLOU2 is on the rise again with more paid ads appearing on social media platforms and the game on sale at a number of retailers.

Enhanced Features

Much like any PS5 title, TLOU2 could see a whole host of improvements if it received a native next-gen version.

Improved Visuals, Haptic Feedback, and Adaptive Triggers are all things that could be made the focus of a next-gen PS5 release for TLOU2.

In addition to this, we could see further improvements to stability and performance. In particular, Ray Tracing features would make TLOU2 a truly stunning experience on the PS5.

Multiplayer & DLC?

The Last of Us had both a Multiplayer mode, Factions, and some single-player DLC. So, what about TLOU2?

Naughty Dog has been quiet about both of these things, however, the upcoming State of Play could make way for both.

If a PS5 port for TLOU2 is indeed in the works, it would make sense for this to be released prior to any additional content. So, we don't expect any Multiplayer modes or DLC to drop for TLOU2 anytime soon.

That being said, an announcement could be in the works so watch this space.
