Over the past weekend, story spoilers and major plot beats for The Last of Us Part 2 have been leaked online. First appearing on YouTube and being swiftly taken down, multiple videos copying the footage that first appeared have since surfaced. Rest assured that there are no spoilers mentioned in this article for Naughty Dog's sequel.
We're not sure who first leaked the footage of The Last of Us Part 2, but it without a doubt reveals significant plot points, new gameplay, and more details of the upcoming game. As we mentioned above, Sony was pretty swift about taking the leaked gameplay off YouTube hours after it first emerged, but not before multiple people could copy and distribute the footage.
We've seen screenshots of the footage that appear to show developer code written over the screen. It's anyone's guess who leaked the footage, or why for that matter. But if you are looking forward to The Last of Us Part 2, be incredibly vigilant on YouTube and Twitter alike, where spoilers for the sequel are being passed around in droves across videos and tweets alike. We've also seen claims that members of The Last of Us subreddit are having spoilers sent to them via their Reddit inbox, so be warned if you're part of the subreddit.
Right now, there's no release date for Naughty Dog's The Last of Us Part 2. The sequel was meant to launch right around a month from now on May 29, before being indefinitely delayed due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Naughty Dog's Neil Druckmann has already spoken about the sequel being effectively finished, and the frustrations of having to sit and wait with the game being complete.
