The Last of Us 2 leaks contain huge spoilers, Sony issue takedowns

The Last of Us 2 leaks are now circulating online, with huge spoilers for the upcoming Naughty Dog game popping up across the weekend. The leaks include a lengthy gameplay video, along with various cutscenes that reveal key story details.

Since the TLOU2 leaks appeared online, Sony has been issuing copyright strikes in order to remove the offending content. However, given that this information is already out there, many are continuing to pass around the footage across forums and social media.

It’s unclear how the footage made its way online, with rumors suggesting that it was leaked by a disgruntled employee who tested the PS4 exclusive. The footage is dated March 2020, indicating that it was captured last month, with it seemingly depicting an alpha build of the game.

Despite Sony working diligently to prevent the leaks from spreading, various mirrors of the footage have already appeared and screenshots continue to be spread. As is typically the case with these things, some are taking it upon themselves to actively spoil the game for others, popping up across Twitter, Facebook, and comments sections in order to continue the spread of the leaks.

This is incredibly unfortunate news for Naughty Dog, which has already delayed The Last of Us 2 indefinitely with no signs of a new release date. This spoiler leak will ensure that many will learn of some major plot points before TLOU2 has even released, which is a huge blow for such a story-driven game.

Sony and Naughty Dog have yet to release an official statement regarding the leaks, with their origin being unconfirmed at the time of this writing. However, if you want to experience The Last of Us 2 for yourself when it eventually releases, you’ll want to avoid these spoilers as much as possible.
