UPDATE 9pm: Sony has responded to the news that massive The Last of Us Part 2 story spoilers have leaked online, telling Eurogamer, “We’re disappointed that anyone would release unauthorised pre-launch footage of The Last of Us Part 2, disrupt years of Naughty Dog’s hard work and ruin the experience for fans worldwide.”
“We want everyone to have the opportunity to play The Last of Us Part 2 at the same time,” it continued, “and ask that viewing or sharing of the unauthorised footage be avoided.”
Naughty Dog has also released its own statement via Twitter, writing, “We know the last few days have been incredibly difficult for you. We feel the same. It’s disappointing to see the release and sharing of pre-release footage from development. Do your best to avoid spoilers and we ask that you don’t spoil it for others.
