The Last of Us Part 2 Requires At Least 100 GB of Free Space
The Last of Us Part 2 official PlayStation page reveals that you are going to need 100 GB of free space on your device to install the game.
Naughty Dog’s upcoming hit, The Last of Us Part 2, is another game in the current generation that joins the 100 GB club in the case of file size, according to its official PlayStation page.
With the video games evolving visually over generations, the file size of them has also increased with a similar slope. Nowadays, it wouldn’t be surprising anymore if a game requires 100 GB of free space or even more. Many big titles of the current generation such as Red Dead Redemption 2, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, and Gears of War 4, required over 100 GB of free space, and The Last of Us Part 2 will also be joining them as it launches in June. Not to mention that the physical version of the game will be shipped in two discs.
The Last of Us Part 2 was set to be released in February, but the long process of development forced the team to push it back to late May. Unfortunately, the disastrous situation caused by Coronavirus has made Sony delay the game one more time until June 19.
Recently, one of the developers behind the game leaked lots of gameplay footage and cut-scenes including heavy spoilers on the plot, each character, and end of the game. Based on what rumors suggest, Naughty Dog and the developer who leaked the clips couldn’t come to an agreement in terms of payments and as a result, the developer leaked some essential parts of the game. However, it’s still unclear whether the story above is trustworthy or not.
Less than 24 hours after the leaks appeared on the web, Sony revealed the new release date in order to avoid fans from watching the leaked footage. Later on, Neil Druckmann, one of the directors behind The Last of Us Part 2, reacted to the leaks by describing his team and himself “heartbroken.”
