Naughty Dog are finally getting ready to talk about The Last Of Us Part II and it looks like there might be new footage as early as next week.

Rumours have been going around for the past week about new footage of The Last Of Us Part II being shown in Madrid next month, bat sadly that was recently debunked by Sony themselves.

Earlier in the week, a Spanish PlayStation blog mentioned that Naughty Dog’s new game would be exhibited at the Madrid Games Week, along with other titles such as MediEvil and Nioh 2, but it turns out it was all just a mistake.

But despite that there is still a chance you’ll get to see some new footage this month.

A media event in L.A. is known to be scheduled for Tuesday, 24 September and while that would normally mean that only press get to see whatever’s there it also happens to be the same day as the next State of Play, Sony’s version of a Nintendo Direct.

This will be the first State of Play since May, so they don’t come along often, and it being scheduled on the same day as the press event is highly suspicious. So we think it’s safe to speculate that everyone will be seeing more of The Last Of Us Part II next week.

Fans will be hoping to hear about a release date, with many betting on an early spring release. There’s still reason to be sceptical about that though, as there are so many high profile games set for release in the first quarter, such as Final Fantasy VII Remake and Cyberpunk 2077.

But this is Naughty Dog and Sony, and they probably think everyone else should get out of their way, not the other way around.

What definitely won’t be mentioned during State Of Play though is anything to do with the PlayStation 5 or next gen, with Sony explicitly saying that’s not what it’s about.

At 20 minutes though it’ll be a fairly long livestream, so there’s a good chance of hearing about some new games and perhaps even release dates for things like Ghost of Tsushima and Dreams.
