The Best Buy page for The Last of Us 2 was updated recently. It says “Includes Next-Gen Upgrade,” which could mean that we might be getting a free Next-Gen Upgrade for The Last of Us 2. As you can see in the image below, just above the cover, it says, “Includes Next-Gen Upgrade.”

Hopefully, this free upgrade gives an option for 4K60 FPS and some other enhancements such as Ray-Tracing.
The Last of Us 2 already supports haptic feedback and other DualSense controller features, so Naughty Dog will only add some enhancements in the free upgrade.
According to NintendoSmash, who have the PlayStation 5 and Dualsense controller, The Last of Us 2 will feature Haptic Feedback on PlayStation 5. In their recent article, they stated, “We have had the opportunity to play some PS4 retro-compatible titles. Those games can be traditionally played with our Dualshock, but if we play with the Dualsense controller, we will also benefit from some specific hardware improvements. We’ve been struck by how haptic vibration works in a game like The Last of Us Part II. Not only do we get a feel for it when we ride, right at the start of the game, but we can even feel the vibration with some guitar chords that sound like a soundtrack” Check the full article out here
Again take this with a grain of salt because it is not confirmed officially by Naughty Dog yet.
