In a reply, the studio, Naughty Dog, stated that all the cinematic shots for The Last Of Us Part II are now finished.
… and we've wrapped all of the planned cinematic shoots today for The Last of Us Part II!
We still have work ahead of us, including putting these cinematics in the game, but this is a nice little milestone.
Congrats to all on stage today, and to the entire cast and crew!! https://t.co/HZAYIUnMkc

The performance capture wrapping up is “a nice little’ milestone” for the team, though the studio still needs to implement them into the final product.
This milestone point towards The Last of Us Part II getting ever closer to being finished, but still no release window has been revealed (though a recent rumour pegs the game for a 2019 launch).
