Sony says it knows who’s obliged for leaking endless footage of The Last of US 2, though isn’t spilling a beans.
Earlier this week, leaks containing an almighty annuity of gameplay footage and cut scenes were posted online containing a annuity of spoilers for a closely-guarded tract of a hotly-anticipated PS4 exclusive.
The hapless (and illegal) information dump left a game’s director, Naughty Dogs’s Neil Druckmann, ‘heartbroken‘, while fans of a array are still desperately attempting to equivocate a leaks forward of a game’s recover on Jun 19.
Now Sony says it knows whodunnit, and it isn’t someone dependent with a association or a developer. So, rumours of a discontented Naughty Dog worker posting a leaks are substantially far-reaching of a mark.
