Midnight releases are completely up to the store in question. If the store decides to do a midnight release for the game, then they will do so.

If you're wondering what stores will and will not be doing midnight releases, then I suggest calling the stores in question and asking about it. If they aren't, then you'll have to go in normal hours or find another store that is doing a midnight release.

As for a digital preorder, those are usually activated by the PS Store updating on the day of release. There has been an occasion where digital preorders were activated at midnight PDT (or around 3 AM EDT), so it would technically be a midnight release for those who preordered or would like to buy it. I don't know if TLoU will do this, but it's possible.

To add to this

 

Typically a mid night release depends on the amount of pre orders a game gets and most of the time the store wont know till the day of. This is how most gamestops function, so would call the day before.

My GameStop that I pre-ordered the Post-Pandemic Edition from said they're planning to open at 11:30 PM to just let people in and get the game early. I'd assume it'd be a 30 minute wait, though. They never like to let anyone but employyes play games early. But mine is definately having a midnight release.

Just called my GameStop, they said they will have it.

When Tomb Raider came out I got there around 11:30pm and was one of the first 10 people in line, got the game minutes after midnight. I'll probably get there around 11 this time.
