Update 2: Sony may have been quick to respond to the official wave of leaked The Last of Us: Part II videos, but it's been unable to stop the bleeding. The web is now awash with major plot points from the game. We've implemented some new technology here at Push Square to help detect and hide any spoilers should they be posted, but you should also be careful on YouTube, Twitter, and any other social media platforms.
Naughty Dog has yet to comment on the nature of the leak, meaning it's still unclear how this even occurred. Remember, the title still doesn't have a release date due to the ongoing coronavirus crisis. It's a heartbreaking turn of events for a title that's been in development for several years now.
Update 1: Sony's ninjas were very quick taking the offending channel offline. However, it's possible mirrors may have already been created of this footage, meaning the risk of spoilers will remain high. This isn't the first time that The Last of Us: Part II footage has leaked, and it looks like it won't be the last. Worryingly, the ongoing coronavirus crisis means the title is currently without an official release date.
Original Story: Be very, very careful: enormous The Last of Us: Part II leaks have started to emerge online. Out of respect for Naughty Dog and the game, we’re not going to host or link to the videos here, but rest assured these are legitimate and reveal huge plot points from the upcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive. It’s safe to assume that Sony will be acting fast to have the clips removed, but it may already be too late to keep this leak under control.
Exactly how these videos have found their way online remains unclear, but the title was originally scheduled to release in May, so it’s possible a near-final build found its way into the wild. Among the footage is a huge chunk of unseen gameplay, various cut-scenes, the release's main menu, and what appears to be unfinished multiplayer code. The latter will be released separately at a later date.
Whatever you decide to do, we encourage you to be careful and show respect for fellow fans. Many of us have waited years for this game, so if you absolutely have to watch the clips, please don't spoil it for others.
