The Last of Us Part II - trailer

The Last of Us Part II has seemingly been hit by major storyline and gameplay leaks.

The sequel to 2013 action-adventure game The Last of Us was announced in late 2016 and was originally set for a February 2020 release, but the ongoing coronavirus pandemic has meant a further indefinite delay.

That update, which came earlier this month, is not the only bad news for fans of the franchise, though, with a series of major leaks for the sequel apparently appearing online this week.

The leaks seemingly included footage of pivotal cutscenes, specific plot details and lists of levels for the PlayStation 4 exclusive.

A video was reportedly shared on YouTube but then swiftly taken down by Sony, who own Naughty Dog – developers of the Last of Us franchise.

It has been speculated on social media that a disgruntled Naughty Dog employee was behind the leaks, though nothing has been confirmed.

Numerous Twitter users expressed disappointment at the plot outlined in the leaks.

This marks the second time this year that leaks for the highly anticipated sequel have emerged online.

Earlier this year, HBO announced they are making a live-action TV adaptation of the first instalment in the franchise.
