'The Last Of Us Part 2' Digital Download Will Be 100GB At Least
There's been a lot of talk about The Last of Us Part II over the last few days - and unfortunately, a lot of it is stuff you'll want to stay away from if you want to remain spoiler-free. But the good news is that after being delayed indefinitely earlier this month, we now have a release date of June 19th.
The not quite so good news is that the game will take up (at least) a whopping 100GB of hard drive space. If you're planning on playing this one as soon as it releases, you may want to start figuring out how much space you have available on your PS4. Physical versions of the game will contain two discs so if that's what you've opted for, you may want to brace for a sizeable installation too.
Amazon appeared to leak the release date for The Last of Us Part II earlier this month but it turns out that it was out by about a week. Of course, that could've just been a placeholder as the release was still "delayed indefinitely" at that point because of concerns surrounding the coronavirus (COVID-19). But it seems likely that the launch of the game could've been pushed ahead due to the leaks earlier this week.
The Last of Us Part II hit the final stages of production back in February and Naughty Dog's Director of Communications, Arne Meyer took to the PlayStation Blog to speak of the milestone.

A release date of June 19th should give you plenty of time to sort out some hard drive space, then. Just be aware that spoilers seem to be everywhere right now.
