Naughty Dog Could Be Working on The Last of Us Part 2 PS5 Patch

Could The Last of Us Part 2 be getting a patch soon for the PS5?

January 28, 2021

If you were hoping for a patch for The Last of Us Part 2 on your new PS5, you could be in luck sooner rather than later.

Yesterday, a ResetEra member in a PS5 thread asked if they should wait to pick up The Last of Us 2 with industry insider Navtra replying “I know a patch was in the works at some point but I’m not sure if it’s still happening or when,” Navtra continued. “I’d be surprised if it doesn’t get a patch, though.” What makes this comment from Navtra interesting is that they have a nose for uncovering information before it’s officially released and who also correctly predicted the announcements in last year’s PS5 showcase in which Sony showcased Horizon Forbidden West footage, Demon’s Souls remake and others.

In November last year, we saw a Best Buy store listing that The Last of Us Part 2 would feature a next-gen upgrade which even then hinted that an upgrade for the PS5 is on its way, but it could have either been a mistake or in reference to the enhanced version that supports haptic feedback on the PS5. Either way, we won’t know any of this for sure until Naughty Dog officially announces it so until then, let’s take this all with a small pinch of salt. In saying that though, I don’t see any reason why the studio wouldn’t want to patch their game for the PS5. We shall wait and see.

In some other The Last of Us Part 2 news, the critically acclaimed game has received 261 awards last year according to the game of the year video game tracking website, gameawardsThe Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has clung to the record for the most Game of the Year awards for over five years and earned 260 wins altogether in 2015, but it’s now time that Geralt and the gang hung up their hats and pass the baton to The Last of Us Part 2.
