Sony refunds digital purchases of The Last of Us 2 and Iron Man VR on PSN
Sony started issuing refunds for digital purchases of The Last of Us Part II and Iron Man VR. This is because the two titles were postponed indefinitely earlier this month, due to the current outbreak of COVID-19.
On the Sony support website, a warning has been issued about the immediate refund of all digital purchases for both games. “All digital order customers will automatically receive a refund,” says a banner at the top of Sony’s support website. “Please check your emails for details.”
This happens just days after the two titles were postponed, originally announced by Sony last week. Iron Man VR would be released on May 15, and Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us Part II was due to be released two weeks later, on May 29. The last title has already been postponed once, as it would be released in February.

As of now, there is absolutely no word on when any of the games will be released, hence Sony’s decision to refund all digital purchases. In addition, both titles have been removed from PlayStation Store, so you can no longer digitally order any of them.
At the end of last week, Naughty Dog director Neil Druckmann spoke briefly on Sony’s PlayStation Blog Podcast about the current state of The Last of Us Part II. Druckmann’s comments seem to indicate that the game is almost complete, but the COVID-19 virus forced Sony to postpone the launch of the sequel.
