Sony Interactive Entertainment has some bad news for the gaming community today. Due to the global pandemic crisis, SIE has decided to indefinitely delay both The Last of Us Part II and Iron Man VR. This news comes from the official PlayStation Twitter account, which dropped the news just minutes ago as of this writing. The two titles were the most recent-coming titles from SIE, and The Last of Us Part II has already seen a delay before.
Update: SIE has made the difficult decision to delay the launch of The Last of Us Part II and Marvel's Iron Man VR until further notice. Logistically, the global crisis is preventing us from providing the launch experience our players deserve.

The tweet notes that because of the global pandemic situation, which has impacted the world and is now especially an issue in the United States, this delay is largely a logistical issue. The launch for these two games is officially delayed “until further notice,” so for now we can’t expect to see a new release date. Specifically, SIE stated that “logistically, the global crisis is preventing us from providing the launch experience our players deserve.”
The PlayStation Twitter account followed this announcement up with another message, noting that for now, these are the only two game launches impacted by the situation. There are no other delays in motion as of this writing, but SIE noted it will keep the community updated if that changes.
