PlayStation announced that the delays were caused by logistic issues from the global COVID-19 crisis. In a statement, PlayStation wrote, “Logistically, the global crisis is preventing us from providing the launch experience our players deserve.” Sony also announced that there are no other delays to report, but will keep players updated.

The other game delayed by SIE today was the highly anticipated The Last of Us Part 2. In a separate statement, Naughty Dog announced that while development on The Last of Us sequel is complete, the same logistic issues prevented the studio from hitting its original May release date.
One game absent from the delay list is Sucker Punch’s Ghost of Tsushima, which is still slated for its June 26 release date on PlayStation 4.Check out IGN’s preview of Iron Man VR here, and our interview with its developers on creating an original Tony Stark story.
