Following a leak, story spoilers for The Last of Us Part 2 have been circulating the internet for weeks. Thanks to a new Twitter feature, it looks like Naughty Dog has finally found one way to combat them, at least on that platform.
This week, Twitter started allowing some accounts to control who can reply to their tweets. So for a recent tweet sharing some artwork for The Last of Us Part 2, Naughty Dog completely turned off replies. Where recent social posts had been filled with replies containing spoilers and vitriol, this tweet was safe to expand without seeing a litany of story spoilers below.
Story details started to leak at the end of April, with footage of gameplay and major story moments finding their way around various forums and video platforms. Naughty Dog asked fans at the time to refrain from spoiling others, but that hasn't really stopped people from sharing some details, especially those who aren't pleased with some of the game's purported developments.
Sony has since claimed that it's identified the parties behind the leaks, and that they weren't part of Sony or Naughty Dog. In the meantime, The Last of Us Part 2 was indefinitely delayed for a spell before it was moved to a new release date in June over logistical concerns surrounding the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
The Last of Us Part 2 will launch for PlayStation 4 on June 19, 2020. Even so, if you're looking to stay unspoiled, it's best to avoid just about any open comments surrounding Naughty Dog or TLOU, just in case.
