New games get added to Sony’s PlayStation Plus subscription service every month, and Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us Part 2 may be next in line. Sony recently updated the promotional banner on the PlayStation Store’s subscription page, giving away this potential future addition.

At the time of writing, the PS Plus banner doesn’t seem to be live anymore. It has likely been taken down again in the meantime. But its appearance, however short, does imply that The Last of Us Part 2 may be coming to the subscription service sooner rather than later.

Could The Last of Us Part 2 Be Coming to Sony’s Subscription Service?

A banner was recently posted to the PlayStation Store’s subscription page, promoting the different available PS Plus tiers: Essential, Extra, and Premium. One of the games featured in the banner was The Last of Us Part 2, which was shown alongside Hogwarts Legacy and Horizon: Forbidden West.

While the full game of Hogwarts Legacy is currently not part of PS Plus, Premium tier members have access to a 45-minute trial of the game to try it before purchasing. Meanwhile, the 2022 GOTY contender Horizon: Forbidden West was added to the PS Plus Extra and Premium game catalog back in February and is available for free for members on those tiers.

Now, where does The Last of Us Part 2 fit in? The sequel to Naughty Dog’s highly acclaimed The Last of Us hasn’t been available on Sony’s subscription service so far. Premium-tier members can play the first part’s 2014 remaster, The Last of Us Remastered, and the Left Behind expansion as part of the PS Plus Classics Catalog.

They can also play a trial of The Last of Us Part 1, which was released in September 2022, and try the first two hours of the most recent remaster of the original 2013 title. However, the sequel has not appeared on PS Plus yet, which may change soon.

Even though the first game was released a decade ago, Naughty Dog’s hit series has recently seen a lot of hype. After already getting a remastered PS4 version in 2014, the studio remade the original game from the ground up last year to release The Last of Us Part 1 for modern consoles.

It released the remake just in time for the premiere of the highly anticipated HBO TV show based on Naughty Dog’s first game. The show, starring Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey as Joel and Ellie, took the world by storm and reached commercial and critical success, with a second season already confirmed.

The heart-wrenching story of Joel and Ellie has won countless new fans with this recent hype train. To keep this trend going, Naughty Dog may even be working on a remastered version of The Last of Part 2, as a recent leak revealed.

Sony has been bolstering its PS Plus catalog with prestigious AAA titles, including games such as the Horizon series, God of War (2018), Ghost of Tsushima, and more. As The Last of Us is a PlayStation first-party title, it is very likely that it will be added to the subscription service at some stage as well.

Given the recent hype train around the celebrated series, it is likely that now is the time for Sony to bring The Last of Us Part 2 to its PS Plus subscribers. The recently posted promotional banner seems to confirm this.

A similar promotion was used earlier this year for Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart. The title was added to the PS Plus Extra and Premium catalog shortly after the banner appeared. While it hasn’t been confirmed officially yet, it seems that Sony could be going a similar route for The Last of Us Part 2. It might get added to the PS Plus Extra and Premium game catalog very soon.
