You probably already know by now but Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us 2 was plagued with massive leaks not so long ago. Hopefully, you have been spared from spoilers so far. The leaks include cutscenes, a complete list of the levels, and spoilers for the entire plot. The leaked appeared to be from an internal build, at Naughty Dog. How the leakers gained access to the build is still unclear.
More Than One Accomplice
Sony has found the guilty party and apparently there was more than one leaker. Furthermore, it is not a disgruntled Naughty Dog employee as was first suspected, according to a report from Polygon. This is what a Sony rep told Polygon.
“SIE has identified the primary individuals responsible for the unauthorized release of TLOU2 assets. They are not affiliated with Naughty Dog or SIE. We are unable to comment further because the information is subject to an on-going investigation.”
Will Justice Be Served?
We still don’t know about the legal ramifications about the whole incident. And Sony can’t talk about it due to the ongoing investigation. However, there are examples like this where legal actions were taken. Like Epic suing several testers who leaked Fortnite Chapter 2 and Nintendo sending subpoenas to whoever leaked images from Pokemon Sword and Shield before its release. We can at least hope that Justice will be swift for anyone who leaks or shares these kinds of spoilers.
Stay safe out there and good luck avoiding any spoilers.
