When is The Last of Us: Part II releasing? That’s one of the biggest questions in gaming right now. We still don’t know, and now game director Neil Druckmann is having some fun with the discussion.

He joked on Twitter that The Last of Us: Part II is delayed by five minutes every time someone asks for the release date. Naturally, people responded to his tweet by asking for the release date.

The Last of Us: Part II is rumored to release in February this year. Just recently, Ellie actress Ashley Johnson said on a Critical Role video that she thinks the game is coming out during a month that starts with the letter F. Kotaku writer Jason Schreier also believes The Last of Us: Part II could release in February, while noted industry analyst Daniel Ahmad says February 2020 is the current internal date for The Last of Us: Part II.

Officially, no release date–or even a release window–has been announced yet for The Last of Us: Part II. The parody website The Onion recently posted a silly story that said the game would launch in 2019, but Naughty Dog responded by saying it would share more information when it’s ready.

The Last of Us: Part II is coming to PS4, but the PS5 will be backwards compatible with PS4 games, so Naughty Dog’s title will play on the new system as well.

In other news, one of The Last of Us: Part II’s designers has joined the new Xbox studio, The Initiative.
