Huge spoilers of the game The Last of Us 2 have been leaked online, along with a video and cut-scenes loaded with dialogue. A couple of times now, the game’s release has been delayed because of the rapidly spreading coronavirus pandemic. After this recent delay, Sony and Naughty Dog haven’t disclosed any information regarding a full release.
Rumour has it that a dev-build of the game was leaked and this could only happen through someone at Naughty Dog. It is possible that the information that has been released is nothing more than a concoction. Sony has now announced that the game is set to be released on June 19. Herman Hulst, Head of worldwide studios at Sony, reported that:
“As we begin to see an ease in the global distribution environment, I am pleased to confirm that The Last of Us Part II will arrive on June 19. And Ghost of Tsushima will follow on July 17”.
In addition to this, Naughty Dog posted a tweet, stating it is ‘disappointing’ that information was leaked. They also urged people to stay away from the spoilers.
Hulst also added:
“I want to personally congratulate and thank both the teams at Naughty Dog and Sucker Punch Productions on their achievements, as we know it’s not an easy feat to reach the finish line under these circumstances. Both teams have worked hard to deliver world-class experiences, and we can’t wait to see what you think of them when they release in just a few short months.”
Some of the leaked images that people managed to make mirrors of the video are as following:
The leaks aren’t just screenshots and videos. Some of the leaked details that have been confirmed are mentioned below:
- The game features two playable protagonists. You play as Ellie in the first half of the game, while in the second half you will play as Abby. Abby’s introduction takes place in a trailer for The Last of Us Part 2 back in Paris Games Week 2017.
- Jesse is that father of Dina’s baby. The two characters were introduced in a story trailer for The Last of Us Part 2. Dina plans to start a family with Ellie and the baby.
- Abby and Ellie will face off, with Dina joining sometime in between. However, Abby proves to be more than a match for both, as she beats them soundly. Before she’s about to kill Dina, Ellie pleads for her to stop; as she’s about to slit her throat, Abby’s companion Lev convinces her not to, and they leave.
Other points have not been confirmed yet because the spoiler videos were taken down as soon as they were put up.
