The PlayStation 4 virtual reality exclusive Marvel’s Iron Man VR has been pushed back “until further notice” amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, publisher Sony Interactive Entertainment announced.
Alongside the Iron Man VR delay, Sony also pushed back the launch of its flagship exclusive The Last of Us Part II, which was originally slated to arrive this May. Neither game now has a release date.
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.

Iron Man VR previously held a February 2020 released date before developer Camouflaj and Sony pushed the game back to May 2020. Both Iron Man VR and TLOU2 were scheduled to launch within two weeks of each other, with the former arriving on May 15 and the latter coming out on May 29. The two PS4 games now share two delays in common.
Camouflaj and Sony revealed Iron Man VR back in March 2019 as a PSVR exclusive. While we still haven’t seen too much of the game since then, director Ryan Payton said the studio aims to tell “a deeply personal, and appropriately funny, narrative” in Iron Man VR that sees Tony confront “ghosts from his past.”
