The Last of Us Part 2 was one of the biggest game releases of 2021, both from a sales perspective and in terms of critical acclaim. The game's emotional narrative, gorgeous visuals, and brutal action helped solidify The Last of Us as one of Sony's core franchises.

It also hit store shelves early in the life cycle of the PlayStation 5, when games were still commonly coming out on PS4 at the same time.
